Review

Mei Mei's teaching methods are highly effective and entertaining. Playing games is a great aid in learning Chinese. Children will find learning with Mei Mei a truly joyful experience which will cultivate their love for not only the language, but also the culture. --Li Wang, Ph. D., Curator of East Asian Collection, Brown University

My 5-year old daughter is totally enchanted by Let's Play Games. The games are fun and fascinating for children to watch and the exposure to Mandarin Chinese is priceless. For small children, there is no comparable tool for learning the Chinese language and culture on the market! --Angela Gora, mother

This excellent video is highly recommended. --Video Librarian

Play & Learn CHINESE with Mei Mei, Vol. 6 (Let's Play Games)

We have several hundred dollars' worth of Mandarin language tools at our house, including books, tapes, CDs and videos. The common thread among them all is low production value: poor video and audio, and/or limited effectiveness from a language acquisition perspective. I've learned that it's pretty much a crapshoot when purchasing many items. I think of it as a `faith-based' effort to locate the perfect language support for my adopted daughter and myself. I keep trying, and pull what I can from each item.

The 'Play and Learn' series by Mei Mei Hu, although good in many respects, are generally just a step above the 'home movie' category. Mei Mei has Montessori training and definitely knows kids, and she provides some well-informed language modeling in places, but two things would greatly improve the series and earn this and other Mei Mei videos 4-5 stars:

1. Focus on basic production values. This particular video suffers from audio and video tracks that are out of sync with one another. Like other 'Play and Learn' features, the amateur editing and production detract from work that has the potential to be quite good. Titling is poorly edited and sometimes difficult to read. UPDATE: We wound up taking a chance on subsequent DVDs and the production values do improve over time. Later volumes are much better.

2. More Mandarin, less English. Mei Mei clearly understands some aspects of language acquisition, and could create even better tools for parents and kids working on Mandarin.

My niece (age-6 adopted from China) has enjoyed all of Mei Mei's Play and Learn Videos and plays at least one of them daily, but Volume 6, "Let's Play Games" is by far her favorite! She has weekly play dates with four close frends (two adopted from China) and the first thing they ask for when arriving at her home is "the game DVD". They play it over and over again for the two hours they are there!
MeiMei knows how to captivate a child's attention with her delightful,upbeat personality and her endless energy! It's a pleasure to watch them being taught Mandarin in such a fun and practical way!

Children viewing this video will be able to relateto games they play being played in another cultureby a different name. The repition of the phrases alone helps the child to hear the words and practice saying them as they hear them. A video to be watched over and over again.

Our daughter adores Mei Mei. She's three and we owe a lot to Mei Mei's videos in heightening her appreciation for her Chinese heritage. She loves watching this video and the other Mei Mei videos. The voice and music is clear. The video is great, as it provides a great sense of how life is for children playing in China. Our daughter loves playing the different games, acting out the dances, identifying herself with certain girls in the video, and picking up words by which she describes her experience. Mei Mei has wonderful videos. I encourage you to buy a few. You'll learn a lot, too.
