  1. I've been compiling various web resources while I'm deciding on a Mandarin curriculum for my dd. I know there are others on here who are interested in teaching Mandarin so I thought I would share! If you have discovered other free online resources, please post them here! Curriculum/Syllabus/Lessons for Mandarin language study: Singapore American School goals by grade for grades Pre-K through 2nd grade and placement chart Kindergarten topics and vocabulary Free lesson plans Chinese zodiac lesson plan Chinese New Year unit study Numbers lesson - numbers up to 100 million Work
  2. Maybe it is just my kids, but the last two want to study Chinese and Arabic. Seriously, kids!!! I can find Spanish classes all over the internet, but Chinese and Arabic! Has anyone used an on-line program for Chinese or Arabic? The Potter School has both classes and a different child used their French program with great success. I was wondering, though, if there are better sources out there. HELP!!
  3. I am just curious if any one else is pursuing this......:tongue_smilie: Since I feel like a rarity in any homeschooling groups.... We do almost all the subjects in both Mandarin and English every day. Now my DD1 (just turned 8 this week) is learning much more and quicker in all her subjects in English, I feel I am in a rat race everyday trying to maintain her Mandarin writing and reading....
  4. I would love input about which Mandarin language program to use. My children are going to have (weekly?) tutoring sessions with a native speaker also, but I want a program for daily practice. I've looked at Rosetta Stone, TellMeMore & others and my head is spinning. Recommendations?? :confused:
  5. http://www.education.vic.gov.au/LanguagesOnline/default.htm There are videos and worksheets and worksheets answers for: Chinese French German Indonesian Italian Macedonian Spanish Turkish ETA: These are at beginner's level, mainly vocabulary with some grammar.
  6. It does requires someone to know chinese to use the books to teach. Preschool textbook and teacher guide link Elementary textbook, workbook and teacher guide link Each book is approximately one semester.
  7. I'm not really looking for a curriculum. Curriculum I have, lol. It's just my chinese is really rusty (as in I don't know it and really DON'T have the time to learn it) and dd is actually starting to get that serious look in her eye where she would take this over and do it herself. Self-motivation is the thing we're looking for, right? So what are my options BESIDES handing her a workbook? She doesn't learn via workbook. She needs some personal interaction, structure, accountability, and did I mention personal interaction? I still have the (whatever those weird sound tapes were, the one
  8. Has anyone taken any Mandarin Chinese classes with Connie Hong on Currclick? She uses Zhong Wen by Dr. Li Ping Ma, founder of the Stanford Chinese School, as the curriculum and the price is certainly reasonable. Thoughts?
  9. My DS is 8. We are about to start our 3rd year homeschooling. 1st year he did Rosetta Stone Spanish. He did it, but didn't love it. 2nd year he studied Latin in a co-op setting. Teacher was awesome, but even she didn't like the book they used. Now DS says he wants to drop Latin [i was thinking about getting Lively Latin or another friend loaned me "Getting Started with Latin"]. I told him--truthfully--that I don't really care if he drops Latin [we'll still study it some indirectly though MCT LA], but that I do want him to study A foreign language. My thinking is that he has plenty of t
  10. I've been waiting all year for the Better Chinese app to be released. I got the email this morning, downloaded the app & free first chapter during lunch. After trying it out, I bought the whole thing. It's not much more expensive than buying the textbook & workbook and you get so much more. This video: is VERY helpful. Here's a link to the app: Discovering Chinese app This uses the Discovering Chinese series, rather than My First Chinese Reader. They're both for beginners, but this series is geared towards middle school/high school. The biggest change is the artwork, really.
  11. I have absolutely no familiarity with Chinese (there are different versions, are there not?). I am currently teaching my kids ASL and Spanish. But I think it would be very good to introduce them to Chinese now. I would like some sort of flashcards or curricula, but I don't know where to begin (or what is the best method of teaching it). I did see from another thread that drilling and memorization is good, but how? And what? Am I doing more damage than good trying to teach them something I don't know? By now have you decided that I am completely hopeless? Because if I am, now would be a
  12. I'm looking for inexpensive options for Mandarin next year. I'm hoping to find a program, or text and DVD's or text and CD's, which doesn't use pinyin, but teaches correct pronunciation, character writing, etc.. Has anyone found something like this? Any help is greatly appreciated!
  13. I heard from a friend that a Chinese immersion school uses Singapore Chinese. I am tired of the very hard Ma Liping Chinese. I went to Singaporemath.com and checked the Chinese. I can't see any samples. I wonder if anyone here uses it. I would like something easy but interesting to do with my 8.5 and 6.5 yr olds. We are kind of lost now for Chinese. Thanks!
  14. I don't know this language, have had very limited exposure to it, but dh feels like this is the direction we should go in. My oldest is almost 11.5. It needs to be easy to implement. Is Rosetta Stone my best bet? Or is there something else? I love the *idea* of a tutor or on-line class. A tutor, though, is probably out of the question. I could SKYPE a tutor for Thai, but not mandarin (my aunt and uncle live in Thailand for 6 mos. out of the year). Thank you...
  15. Actually the site is just links to reputable websites with free language learning materials. Lots for German, English, Spanish, Italian, as well as a mixture of other languages under "autres langues". This can help strengthen your French at the same time. (I wonder what that does in the brain, learning a language using different languages -eg sometimes learning Spanish with English materials and sometimes learning it with French materials?) http://www.lepointdufle.net/cours_de_langues.htm Joan
  16. I'm trying to fulfill the foreign language req for ds#3. Because of his LD it has been suggested that Chinese is a good option for him. Someone also suggested the MIT course. I have looked at several of these but haven't figured out the practical day to day implementation. I see that there is a text as well as mp3 and YouTube aspects as well. But the syllabus is written for the college course or so it appears. How would one provide testing for these courses? Or is there another way to evaluate the student? What does a day with a MIT course look like? Also, would you transcript th
  17. Hi everyone--I have a question for those of you whose children are learning Mandarin. Our son was enrolled in a Chinese school for two years but then this year we pulled him out due to scheduling issues and just continued with the curriculum ourselves. We are not Chinese-American and thus had no idea before entering the school that it was started and run by Taiwanese Americans who largely prefer the traditional characters, which is what we have learned to date. I am debating whether to switch my son to simplified characters at this point, or if there are reasons to continue with traditiona

  19. DD is very interested in languages. She's been excited about latin for a long time but she's also interested in a few other languages: greek, japanese, spanish, german and french. Greek is something she's willing to drop but then there's all the others... She's always thought japanese would be too difficult for her but she was encouraged my a friend to do it. Spanish, she's also willing to drop and pick up in a few years time when she's at college if the worst comes to the worst but that still leaves Japanese, German and French as well as Latin. French is something she's done in school fo
  20. Anyone know anything about learning Chinese? The only curriculum I've heard of is Rosetta Stone, but I think there's probably more out there that's not specifically for homeschoolers. There are no Chinese tutors in our area so that's out. Any suggestions? I have a 10-year-old son who'd like to start learning and seems to have a knack for languages. Thanks! Michele R. (I'm new!)
