Mandarin Advantage released its first DVD that teaches children 3-8 years old Mandarin Chinese. “Journeys to the East – The River Dragon King” makes learning fun by engaging children in an exciting adventure to ancient China where they meet the River Dragon King, rebuild a Terracotta Warrior, and fly on a magic flying cloud. Chinese vocabulary is introduced incrementally throughout the adventure so that children learn without realizing that they are “learning.”
“We have accomplished our goal if children are excited about learning Chinese,” says Min Tung, founder of Mandarin Advantage. “The vision for the product came from my own frustration in trying to find materials suitable for my children in learning Chinese. Immersion products were too advanced and flash-card like products did not capture the attention of my 4 year old. We wanted to create a fun adventure that children can be involved in, incorporate Chinese vocabulary, and also introduce China’s rich culture and history.”
In first episode “The River Dragon King,” children learn basic colors, fruits, greetings, body and face parts. ♦
“Journeys to the East – The River Dragon King” is priced at $12.95 and is currently available at www.amazon.com and www.NiHaoBooks.com. For more information and to see a sample clip, please visit www.MandarinAdvantage.com.
