Language Tree DVDs are a fun and easy way to introduce your child to a new language. Video is a great medium because it provides both auditory and visual reinforcement of new phrases and vocabulary. Your child will actually see how the language is used in the appropriate situational context – which further deepens language understanding.
I’ve reviewed the video tape Billy and Benboo and really like the Multi-Cognition Approach on which it is based. I also like the organization of the story. I believe that both children and adults who deal with children will find it entertaining while learning Chinese.
