Synopsis: The universal language of music is at the heart of this introduction to Chinese.

From School Library Journal: PreSchool-Grade 4. These two packages attempt to help English speaking Americans acquire the rudiments of the Chinese language in slightly different ways. Neither offers any information on the Chinese language with its many vast differences from English. Neither mentions whether the language on the tape is Mandarin or another dialect. Nor does either offer a phonetic equivalent to help when trying to reproduce sounds from the pinyin transliterations. Teach Me Chinese includes both spoken and sung Chinese. Certain basic vocabulary is introduced, then used in a song, which is sung in both English and Chinese. The text is about the activities of Marie, "A Musical Journey Through the Day," narrated clearly by a female voice. She introduces us to her house, family, and pets in Chinese. She gets dressed, then discusses parts of the body, days of the week, letters, numbers, and activities. Interspersed with these sentences, which are written in both Chinese characters and romanized pinyin and translated in the back of the booklet, are many songs familiar to American children, from "The Wheels on the Car" to "On the Bridge of Avignon," all sung in both English and Chinese. Listeners have the opportunity to acquire the proper pitch, an important factor in spoken Chinese, while listening to the narrative. The pace of narration is rapid and not easy to follow in the booklet's pinyin translation. But since children pick up languages aurally with ease, they should be able to learn a basic vocabulary with this package. Sing 'n Learn Chinese includes 22 songs on one side, sung only in Chinese with the music only on the other side. A female voice sings fairly clearly, with simple accompaniment. Many of the songs are familiar in English. By singing "Ten Little Friends," listeners learn how to count to ten in Chinese; with "This Is the Way," they learn the Chinese for washing the face, brushing teeth, combing hair. And so it goes, with many other subjects such as colors, family members, etc. Each song is written in the accompanying booklet in simplified Chinese characters, traditional Chinese characters, and romanized pinyin. There is also an English translation of and notes in an "Instructional Guide" on each selection. This kit can introduce the language and vocabulary as sung, but not as spoken. A comparison of the same song used on both cassettes shows different translations. Both packages offer parents and teachers a chance to open a window, if only a crack, into a very different language.?Sylvia Marantz, Norwich School, Hilliard, OH
