Chinese for toddlers

Chinese for toddlers - Which product should you choose?

Little Pim: Playtime, 3-Pack Bundle, Learning Chinese for Babies, toddlers, and preschoolers is a very popular product for Teaching Chinese to Toddlers.

Little Pim uses animation and real kids to introduce words and phrases for everyday activities and is award winning. It was developed by the daughter of Paul Pimsleur, Julia Pimsleur Levine. Paul Pimsler developed a method of quickly Learning Foreign Languages based on the four principles of anticipation, graduated interval recall, core vocabulary, and organic learning. A great quote about the pimleur method on how it uses behavioral principles—gradual shaping of behavior, immediate reinforcement of response, stimulus (cue) control of the verbal response, systematically interlarding new and old material, focusing on the most common words in a language, and limiting the amount of new material to bite size portions—for its effectiveness.

What has been done with Little Pim is refining the technique and using it with children. The author, Julia Pimsleur Levine wanted to teach her children French, but found no videos on the market that met her high standards. Now she was also a film maker, bilingual teacher, and a Mother which meant she had all the key skills to produce her own series of high quality video's, which Little Pim is an example of this.
