Postby qszou » Tue Jun 07, 2011 3:46 pm

Difficult to get my son(primary 2) to learn to read/write Chinese. Any good suggestions? I have an IPod and it seems my son loves to play games with it. Is there any good app to recommend to help learn primary chinese?

Maybe you want to check outon creative tech "wa wa ya ya" software at popular bookstore. There are also a wide range of DVD to choose from. Chinese is only my kids weakest subject. It is also important to read Chinese books to him.

Hi qszou,

Picture books (绘本) can be used to develop interest in reading. Do note that there is a difference between storybooks and picture books.

Storybooks tend to have more text per page and pictures/illustrations are secondary. Picture books tend to have lesser text and place emphasis on the pictures/illustrations.

Picture books represent a unique literary form that blends stories with art. Although picture books may have lesser words than novels, the illustrations in these books are powerful in sustaining the children's interest and attention. The role of picture books is to get children talking about what happens in the book, thus, developing their language and literacy skills.

In the midst of piecing the storyline and learning to recognise the words in the picture books, the children are actually nurturing their observation, communication, imagination and creativity skills.

Picture dictionaries are also useful in getting him started with the language. You can have a look at our latest Chinese picture dictionary. It uses themes and sub-themes as a framework to introduce over 600 commonly used nouns to kindergarten and lower Primary pupils. Some of these nouns can be found in the new Primary Chinese syllabus.

The key feature of this dictionary is that it caters for extended learning by matching the nouns with measure words and verbs to form meaningful phrases.

The picture dictionary is also accompanied with and mobile app to make learning easy for users as they are able to listen to the corresponding audio playback for the nouns through the interactive interface.
