    looking for fun mandarin program

    Hello,

    My 3.5 year old daughter speaks mandarin and I'm looking for a program that will teach her character recognition in a fun way. Any recommendations would be appreciated.

    We live in Mid-Levels. Anywhere around here would be great.

    Yes, we have tried KinderU, it's awful! The management is terrible. They basically force you to buy all their products and also bombard you with e-mails and SMS with their products. Also, apparently, they have some issues with all the education experts in the world about something illegal they are doing, but not 100% sure what it was.

    Basically, I would not recommend it to anyone.

    I think there is one called Bean Sprouts on the HK side, but we personally have not tried it so cannot recommend it or not. I think there is also Mandarin Munchkins which seems to be authentic. There is another one which is supposed to be good but I have forgotten the name. Will post again if I remember. I think the best thing to do is to go for trial class which is popular in Hong Kong. That way, you can see if your little bub enjoys these classes.

    Good luck!

    If you don't mind to travel a bit, I know one in Causeway Bay called Discoveries. They don't do much advertising, I was told by my friend (who lives in SF and travels all the way back to HK to take their course!!). Anyway, here's the website English learning for children - Discoveries Learning Centre

    Cheers

    I have not tried it but I have a few friends who think Kidsland in Causeway Bay is good. Their website is KidsLand - Home but I understand that they are popular so you need to register in advance. Good luck.
