Chinese for Children

Learning Mandarin Chinese has proven good for both Children and Adults alike.

People are today looking at ‘investing’ in learning Mandarin. Parents want their children to learn the language not only because it is the most spoken language in the world, but also because it is a great tool for a child’s early development.

Studying Chinese stimulates different parts of the child’s brain because the language is very different from English in sound, tone and script.

Researchers have proven that people who speak Mandarin use both temporal lobes of their brain to understand the language. In addition to this, the practice of handwriting, especially that of the Chinese Characters will aid the development of motor skills, learning shapes and letters, the visual identification of graphics, and keeps the mind sharp.

Chinese characters are more complex in structure and writing involves strokes in all four directions: up, down, left, and right. The sequential movement of the fingers and hand to form a character activates neural activity in the working, thinking, and spatial memory of the brain of the learners.
With China’s economy becoming stronger by the day, learning the language will always prove as an advantage and will surely pay its dividends.
