The Importance of Reading Stories in the Learning of Chinese
After all these years, if I were to pinpoint one very important thing to do that will make a material difference in the learning of Chinese, it is definitely the reading aloud of stories on a daily basis. This one single thing that you can do lays a strong foundation for your child. I would even say that if you can only do ONE thing, do this. The least you can do for your child to help him learn Chinese is to read stories to him. If you cannot read, then get a reading pen, or buy some audiobooks and listen together with him. There are always pockets of time that you can use.
