Jade is an excellent teacher speaking great mandarin Chinese (and English).

I would recommend this for many different types of Chinese learners including Bi-national families trying to learn each others languages.

My daughter has actually learned some words thanks to that approach, but it doesn't hold her attention long.

Format: DVD
My [...] loves this video and has learned many new words. The format is constantly teaching new words - not just a few words sprinkled through. Jade is a teacher (I'd say in her 20s) and she starts at a Chinese market and points/holds to types of foods and names them and then moves on to body parts and farm animals. The word is also written in Chinese on the screen. She then reviews them in a quiz format with children and then in a game format with pictures or toys. I don't speak Chinese, so I don't know if there are any errors in the tape or not. The last section has children singing songs with Chinese in at least part of them. Some of the songs just have a few Chinese words in them and others are all Chinese. The video is interactive and educational. I'm anxiously looking forward to the Jade Kindergarten video now that we've seen this one.

There are a couple negatives: it is sometimes hard to hear some of the kids speak as it is softer and not as clear; the barnyard scene goes fast, but she does do a good job reviewing them later; and a couple of the visual aids are a little hard to tell what they are. Still, I recommend this video - these are really minor flaws when you view the whole video. It is short (about 30 minutes), but all my [...] should watch at one sitting anyway.

We love this DVD! Jade laoshi is a big hit at our house and "Let's Go To Market" is my child's favorite. It covers lots of the important toddler words, like parts of the face/body, animal names, fruit names, and a couple of songs. "Visit a Kindergarten" is also good and covers counting, colors, weather, and songs. Neither of these DVDs are Disney quality production, but the material and the teacher are both very good for the younger kids. Way more age appropriate than something like Muzzy. I would recommend this for many different types of Chinese learners including Bi-national families trying to learn each others languages. Jade's teaching style is good for teaching some English to Chinese speaking children.

We have both of the Follow Jade DVD's. They are fantastic. She repeats the words alot and in different settings. Too bad that they are only the words, and she doesn't teach you how to ask for it in a sentence. Hopefully, she will expand and create more dvd's.

I also recommend the Mei Mei dvd's, too. They're great, too. The songs are very catchy.

Plus, we also bought this gorgerous "ASIAN AMERICAN BERENGUER GIRL DOLL" from EBAY, and my daughter absolutely loves to play with the beautiful doll and watch her Chinese dvd's.

I have two kids who are half Chinese and half American, and are interested in learning Chinese. A friend told us about this "follow jade" series. We first borrowed it from the liabrary, and it was a hit in the family! The kids started to say things like "what is your name", "how old are you" in Chinese just like Jade, and answer back with each other just like the kids in the video. It was so sweet to see that! I am just so happy to see them finally getting into Chinese with excitement.

The video is not all Chinese (that would not really work), it is spaced nicely with English and Chinese, making the Chinese very visible and easy to remember. Some people might not get used to it at the beginning. I thought it was very different at first, because it is not the usual way of teaching. But it works like a charm! I would encourage everyone to try it.

I also like the real market scenes in China, the color, the sound, it really makes you feel China and want to practice your Chinese. I highly recommend the two Follow Jade videos to anyone. The Kindergarden one has more songs and basic words, the Market one has a bit extended vocabs. Try them!

The Follow Jade videos are serving as a perfect introduction to Mandarin Chinese for my two small children. Jade employs many tools to keep kids engaged, including props, animation, songs, and scenes of kids in China. For non-Chinese parents like us, it is the perfect tool to get children exited about speaking Chinese. My three year old daughter asked for Follow Jade three times today!
Both Follow Jade videos have worked well to gently introduce my children to the language and culture in a very positive way. An especially strong recommendation for FCC parents. We're waiting for the next video!

Follow Jade is a very good way of discovering the Chinese language. It is also a good teaching support for students, though it is a bit expensive (30 minutes). As a private tutor, I bought it to help my students who are beginners and it really helped them, since it is very entertaining, they learn a lot without realising it.

My 4-year old and I both like this DVD. It covers fruit names, animals and parts of the body. Some will say this is not much for the money. Some may also say the quality is not as good as Disney. But the video creates a warm and comfortable environment for the younger learners. Clean, light and fun. Jade is an excellent teacher speaking great mandarin Chinese (and English). The "theme song" - (in Chinese)"1,2,3,4,5,6,7, where are my friends..."- is a big draw for kids first learning Chinese. Some other rhymes are also very memorable. Great pacing and many reinforcements.

I saw some comments regarding Chinese learning videos' variable sound volume when real people speaking Chinese. And I smile, because that is exactly what Chinese is. The Chinese phonetics varies a lot more than English. It is a lot less "sing-songy". If you learn Chinese the "pronouced" way - to pronouce every character by the right tone and length, you would be "reading in monotone" , not "talking". I agree you probably should start learning this way, but it is through subtle variations of tone, length and volume that you deliver this most complex language of its true meaning.
