English movies dubbed into Mandarin

November 26, 2011

This is to introduce Mandarin Chinese dubbed movies to the Mandarin Chinese learning community.

Chinese have been importing American movies into China and dubbed them in Mandarin Chinese for the China market.  These are the exact movies our kids have been watching since their early age. For examples, Disney movies Beauty and the Beast, Toy Story, The Sound of Music, or Hollywood style movies Gone With The Wind, You’ve Got Mail, Casablanca, High School Musical, Harry Potter, The Lord of the Rings, Pirates of the Caribbean, etc.  These movies have in turn become very good tool for our kids who are in the Mandarin Chinese program!

There are many advantages as for using Mandarin Chinese dubbed movies.

(1) These are the movies our kids are already familiar with. Instead of watching Chinese movies of background they are not familiar with, kids can instantly understand what’s going on.

(2) The Chinese dubbed movies come English and Chinese conversation audio, as well as English / Chinese subtitles.  Having English subtitles is crucial because the kids can listen to the Chinese conversations, read the subtitles on the screen, and watch the episodes.  That way, the learners will not get lost between translation.

(3) The kids can learn from standard Mandarin Chinese pronunciation.

(4) They can improve Mandarin Chinese in many fronts, including enhanced listening comprehension of Mandarin Chinese while displaying English subtitles on the screen, or fast reading if they choose displaying Chinese subtitle while watching.

(5) Kids can gain confidence in mastering Mandarin Chinese, increasing the possibility of succeeding while they still have fun learning.

There are some websites on the internet that specialize supplying Mandarin Chinese dubbed movies.  One of them is Chinese Dubbed Movies Store . They ship product! s from within the United States, and typical delivery time is 2 to 3 business days with USPS tracking and delivery confirmation.  That’s more desirable than ordering from an oversea store whose typical delivery time is up to 30 business days. Google search “Chinese dubbed movies”, and you should find there store.

Having fun learning Mandarin Chinese!

    Ms. Weise,
    My son and family will be depoying to China soon, (don’t know where yet), and need exposure to Mandarin. You mentioned the “Chinese dubbed movie store” but all of their movies require DVD players for region 6, U.S. DVD players are region 1. Do you know where I can find Chinese dubbed movies with english subtitles for region 1 or do they just need to buy a “Region free” player? I’m looking for movies such as “Cars” and “Toy Story” for a 3 year old plus action/adventure movies for his 31 year old father. I’m getting desperate as I need to find some soon. Can you help me?

    Thank you!

    You can hack a region 1 DVD player with minimum effort to make it a all region capable DVD player (that plays DVDs from all regions). See as follows:

    Happy learning Mandarin Chinese !
