I. Some Good learning Experiences for Children

1. Lead your child to take notes during class. Prepare a notebook or a piece of paper for your child, and write down important points or questions that your child does not understand which can help your child learn.
2. Have your child speak and repeat Chinese as much as possible. Imitating the people in the video or audio and speaking Chinese together can improve Chinese pronunciation. Try to play it back as many times as possible to correct the tones.
3. Prepare Chinese picture books for your child. Picture books with colorful pictures can quickly attract your child’s interest.
4. Find some topics to test daily. There is an old saying in Chinese that “practice makes perfect”, so repeating often will definitely have a possitive effect.

II. Behaviors That Parents Should Avoid in the Process of Teaching Chinese

1. Pointing out mistakes too many times: In the early stage of learning Chinese, children should not pay too much attention to ”correcting mistakes”, which will discourage children’s enthusiasm. Correcting too often means that parents’ attitude is not good and children may lose interest which will put yourself in the wrong position as a ”teacher” instead of a parent who learns together with the child.
2. Too anxious to see results: When children learn Chinese, it is better to insist on spending a few minutes a day reading a text for 10 minutes a day than to ask them to learn for 3 hours at a time.
3. Too much pressure: When children learn Chinese teach them to pay attention to phonetics and intonation. But do not make tough demands on them. It is not necessary for them to recite Chinese fluently so it’s not necessary to examine the results of memorization either.
