ELC 2023 Summer Chinese


There’s a simple tool used by Mandarin learners around the world (as well as hundreds of millions of Chinese school kids) to pronounce Chinese characters: 拼音 (pīn yīn) – known simply as “pinyin” in English.

Beginners use pinyin to get used to the sounds and tones of Mandarin, while more advanced learners can use it to look up new words they’ve heard out loud in the dictionary, and type Chinese characters using a standard keyboard.

In fact, if you’ve said the words “Beijing” or “Shanghai” out loud before, you’ve already used pinyin without even knowing it!

Reading Class 1A/1B

"Reading Class" is aimed at overseas children's background in learning Chinese. Each lesson will start with stories or nursery rhymes that are easy to understand or familiar to children, and go deeper layer by layer. Let the children start from basic fluent reading, to reading with obstacles, and finally to achieve fluent reading. Expand vocabulary, acquire teachings, and then complete from review to understanding, further consolidate words, and learn new words and sentence patterns in a specific context, and gradually transition to story re-creation (writing). After each reading, there are choice and question-and-answer exercises to confirm the children's understanding and gains of the lesson.
