Nice Grandparent - Paying for Grandchild to Learn Chinese

Minor change yesterday on an order where the customer accidently put their address, instead of their daughters for My First Chinese Words Set (36 Books + Audio CD), Simplified Chinese .

His daughter is fluent in Mandarin Chinese and is teaching her child Chinese.  And the Grandfather is willing to help pay for the materials.

I commented back that I like the My First Chinese Words Learning Chinese Curriculum

a lot.  Great quality and well done with lots of support material.  From CD's to exercise books to teachers guides.  The only negative I found was its a bit pricier than other material.

What I like aobut My First Chinese Words is it:

* Teaches basic Chinese sentences a child can immediately use.

* Lessons focus on how to communicate in Chinese, not just memorize individual words.

* Excellent supplementary materials, teaching support system

* Award-winning curriculum

But, my comment about cost bothered me.  $49.95 for 36 tiny books and a CD.  You can buy another textbook for $19.95.  But how much is your time worth?  If your serious about teaching Chinese paying a bit more for material that includes teaching guides in English (and just not a list of answers in Chinese) is huge. Plus all the support material.  With this in mind the premium that my My First Chinese Words demands can be justified.

What I like aboutMy First Chinese Words is its reading based with a bunch of short books.  This is great for younger ages because they have such a short attention span.  And later they can progress to My First Chinese Reader Curriculum by Better Chinese and Magical Tour of China Intermediate to Advanced by Better Chinese (all the way through High School) using the same material.
