Get ready for summer and some reading in Mandarin
May 10, 2012
Once again the folks at 5Q Channel in Taiwan are making available a special ‘parents’ rate for their web site, which offers illustrated stories with the Mandarin in characters (simplified and traditional are both available) and the stories are also read aloud.
It’s a great site if you don’t read Mandarin yourself, because it reads stories to your kids.
They also have iPad apps available.
To get the $30 yearly rate, log in here:
Another good site is out of Silicon Valley, called ChildRoad. It’s a a read-and-listen library of stories in Mandarin.
Both are great ways to make sure your child keeps up with Mandarin over the summer. When my kids want to go online, I tell them “Sure, but only if it’s one of these sites.”
