K12 Chinese


Chinese Out of the Box

Chinese Out of the Box is a complete instructional kit for developing the foundation skills for Mandarin Chinese for children aged 5-10 who have not been previously exposed to the language.

The instructional kit gives the teacher a complete range of classroom tools for exposing the children to Mandarin, engaging them in Mandarin activities, and leading them to perform in Mandarin using culturally appropriate behaviors.

By the end of the course, the children will be able to answer questions about themselves, discuss food, and identify common objects in their environments and imaginations—and sound really good doing it!


《非常中文》为教师们提供了全套的工具,用来帮助孩子们 “体演” 中文,运用普通话进行多种活动和游戏,并合情合理地正确使用中文的表达。使用这套教材之后,孩子们可以用中文谈论自己和身边各种感兴趣的事物,而且会听上去很 “正” 哦!
