CHINESE FOR KIDS vol. 1 bring fun and excitement to language learning. Starring native Mandarin speakers and 3-D animated characters this DVD teaches basic conversational Chinese within the context of a fantastic birthday party - full of lively songs delicious, food, and playful games. Billy and his cute Shih Tzu puppy Benboo teach useful phrases for everyday situations along with words for colors, numbers, and toys. Embedded throughout the video are interactive DVD games that test a child s comprehension and original music by a Hollywood composer designed to reinforce new words and phrases. All Language Tree videos incorporate the breakthrough Multi-Cognition ApproachTM, developed by a Stanford University cognitive scientist, for faster and deeper learning. DVD comes with learning booklet.
Anybody wanting an introduction to Mandarin Chinese would greatly benefit from this video. The teaching methods are clear, concise, and repeated for emphasis each time. Each video has an instructional booklet with phonetic pronunciations for each word. The cartoon characters are cute, without being cutesy, they don't detract from the message: to teach the basics of an intricate language. The tones that are characteristic of the Mandarin dialect are taught with pictures and sounds that any young child can grasp. One word, spelled exactly the same, has four different meanings, depending on where the inflection is placed and the tonal quality in which it is spoken. This is a quality product, recommended for anyone wanting to connect with the Chinese culture. --Review Board, Dove Foundation

1. The whole image of this DVD feels very home-made, not professional at all. I think it's because of the sound system.
2. The pronunciation is off (with a foreign accent).
3. When the DVD introduces father (ba ba), it just shows a man's face - if you don't read English as a child, you'd have no clue what this man's face is meant. When the DVD introduces big present (da li wu), it has a child pushes a present forward. How a person who doesn't read know what it's trying to say - is the big bag da li wu?
I wish I can return this DVD.
