Better Chinese Online is a beginner platform for Ages 7-12. Designed for students, teachers, and schools in mind, this online platform is based on our most popular Primary/Elementary language program – My First Chinese Reader with over 20 years of success in schools, adopted by 10 US states to align with state standards. In the US, not every state is an adoption state.
My First Chinese Reader online curriculum features progressive Chinese lessons specifically designed for Elementary School students living in non-Chinese language environments. Our lessons are research-based and classroom-tested to ensure that we meet a child's language skill and learning needs. Kids move through each level with daily lessons that establish the essential vocabulary and sentence structures needed to speak Chinese. Vivid Mandarin Chinese recordings with songs, rhymes and cultural content add variety and fun to the curriculum.
