The lunar new year is once again upon us and we wanted to wish you all a very happy new year – xīn nián kuài lè. We hope all your wishes come true and if you are helping your kids to learn Chinese or maybe plan to travel to China in the coming year with your kids, here some great resources for learning Chinese:
Chinese resources for kids and parents who are non-native speakers
Chinese Mandarin learning materials designed by a teacher, tried and tested in a classroom
The Tuttle Chinese for Kids Flash Cards kits are a Chinese language learning tool specially designed to help children acquire necessary words, Chinese characters, phrases, and sentences in Chinese in a fun and easy way. Available for different ages and levels.
One of the best Chinese language textbooks for young students, available with instructions in various languages. The language materials are presented in fun and interesting ways, with highly attractive and colourfully designed pages.
A great online dictionary which gives the meaning of the character as well as the stroke orders as an animated video.
An amazing Chinese dictionary, especially useful when travelling and much better than the often very embarrassing Google Translate
