    About this book

Developed with teachers, Mandarin for Kids Set 1 is for early beginners ages 3-8. The Spot Color Immersion Method® weaves vocabulary words into first readers, making Chinese fun and non-intimidating. Children soon finish the 16-page Chinese books for kids on their own (or with the online audio)--an achievement that motivates them to continue to learn Chinese. Set 1 features:
10 beginning Chinese reader books, each with 10 theme vocabulary words and a simple storyline following a repetition structure
Themes: Family, Animals, Clothing, Colors, Face/Body, Fruit, Numbers, Shapes, Snacks, Toys
One line of text per page in pinyin for kids with parallel Simplified Chinese characters
English translation at the back
Bilingual vocabulary charts on the inside cover
Online audio by a native speaker (adults don't need to help with pronunciation). Audio is accessed using a web address/URL inside the books and can be streamed/downloaded
A first series for a Chinese kindergarten, Chinese preschool, or early elementary school, or beginning Chinese for toddlers or babies. Illustrations by Nancy Meyers, recipient of the American Library Association's 2018 Geisel Honor.

Why parents and teachers love Language Together®:
CONFIDENCE-BUILDER FOR BEGINNERS. Learning Mandarin Chinese can be intimidating but kids finish these 16-page readers and proudly exclaim 'I finished this little story on my own--in Chinese!'
APPEALS TO DIFFERENT LEARNING STYLES. Visual learners naturally understand the meaning of words and characters when reinforced by color and pictures.
ENGAGING READERS. Kids lose interest in flash cards but are captivated by words in a story.
CONTEXT. Mandarin children's books often present words in isolation. Kids learn words with meaningful context.
FLEXIBLE SUPPLEMENT. Used in schools and homes as a supplement to flash cards and workbooks.
    About the author

Germaine Choe is the Founder and Series Creator of Language Together. The Language Together approach was developed with teachers and curriculum experts and features a unique Spot Color Immersion Method® that makes languages fun and achievable for beginners ages 3 - 8.

Step by step, these deceptively simple readers weave first words and phrases into short stories that make kids laugh and forget they are actually learning. Beginners can understand and finish each story on their own (or with help from the online audio), building confidence and motivation.

Watch kids light up as they read page after page, until they proudly reach the end and say, 'I read this little story on my own – in a new language!'​
