Learn Chinese Mai Ti Fass

 

We're all concerned about expanding the foreign language instruction in our schools. The next generation will have to operate in a global economy, so the more foreign languages you can use, the better off you'll be.

 

A big language of the future is Chinese, but it is rare to find a teacher of Chinese in K-12 schools. Therefore, you have to turn to online instruction, like this.

 

Here are common expressions, in English. Read them silently.

 

Then read the translated versions aloud, in Chinese.

Voila! You're fluent! Or is it . . . fractured?

 

 

That's not right Sum Ting Wong
