Research shows that young children have an amazing aptitude for foreign languages. Developed by veteran Chinese teacher Zhao Sunny Zeng, this 23-minute Chinasprout program makes learning Mandarin Chinese fun and entertaining. An engaging teacher introduces two young, traditionally dressed pupils to the numbers one to 10, colors, fruits, and animals; has them repeat the Mandarin words; and then answer questions like "what color is this" and "what's your favorite animal?" A larger class of children expands upon each basic lesson with songs set to popular children's tunes, fun rhymes, and by imitating some favorite animals. Subtitles are provided in Pinyin and Chinese simplified characters (a version utilizing the standard Roman alphabet that can be phonetically sounded out). Familiar tunes, young children having fun, and a teacher that speaks slowly and clearly add up to a fun show that will teach children ages 3 to 8 some basic Mandarin Chinese. --Tami Horiuchi


Say Ni Hao (hello)to this clever, colorful introductory guide to Mandarin Chinese. Enthusiastically recommended for both home and classroom use. -- Video Librarian, January-February 2002
