Let’s start with boosting your child’s LISTENING today.

語文學習和與人溝通素來是兩件相負相承的事。無論是成人還是孩子,學習語文或語言的最終目的是與人溝通。而當我們越多與別人溝通,語文學習就會變得越有意義。據學術報導,在人與人之間的溝通交流之中,聽、說、閱、寫佔的比例是:

  • 聽:40-50%
  • 說:25-30%
  • 閱:11-16%
  • 寫:9%

可見「聽」的重要性。

大量的新信息我們都是通過聽來吸收:在街上、商店、辦公室、學校⋯⋯我們靠聽可以又快又準地獲得很多新消息,甚至辨別安危。初生嬰兒學講話,靠的是聽;孩子上學,吸收學問的主要途徑也是聽。聽,讓我們可以同時吸收新知息和學習語文運用。當然,靠聽的語文學習比較偏向口語。

聆聽,相對於隨意的聽有些不同。


Language learning and communication are inter-related. For children and adults alike, we learn languages in order to communicate with the others. When we can achieve that, our language learning becomes meaningful and rewarding. Human communication involves listening, speaking, reading and writing, although we don’t engage in all four of them equally. Researchers have observed the following pattern in our regular communication:

  • Listening: 40-50%
  • Speaking: 25-30%
  • Reading: 11-16%
  • Writing: 9%

This observation reflects the importance of listening.

We take in most information via listening, whether it’s on the streets, in shops, at work or in school. Listening allows us to get news efficiently and accurately, and to detect people’s emotions or intentions. Newborn babies learn to speak through listening. When children go to school, they spend a lot of time by listening to the teacher. When we listen, we learn how a language is used as the same time as we learn new information.

聆聽 Listening

在溝通的過程中,能確切地接收聽到的訊息並準確地理解其意思。
聆聽是高效溝通的關鍵。
In the process of communication, one hears the message and then correctly analyse and comprehend its meanings.
Listening is key to effective communication.

要真正能做到聆聽,專注力就不可少。

對剛開始學認讀的孩子來說,聆聽變得更重要。聆聽 – 聽父母或老師讀,或聽音頻 – 是孩子學習認讀的唯一途徑。而漢語,無論是粵語或普通話,都有大量的同音字、諧音字。同時,普通話的四個音調再加上輕聲,粵語的九個音調,都不能用拼音或標音完全準確地標示。因此,聆聽清晰、標準的發音十分重要。


To be able to achieve listening, focus and attention are required.

For children who are learning to read, listening is especially important. Whether they listen to parents, teachers, or recorded audio, it is the only way for a child to associate words and sounds and to learn how to read. In Chinese, there exist large amount of homophones and rhymes. It is true for both Putonghua and Cantonese. It’s very common to have words that are pronounced the same, vary only in intonation and they mean entirely different things. In Putonghua, there are 4 basic intonations plus the light stress. In Cantonese, there are 9 intonations. It is a challenge to simply follow the printed pinyin and learn how to read correctly (not to mention that young children would not be able to read and understand how to pronounce all the pinyin, and not many people use or understand Cantonese phonic signs).  Therefore, listening to clear and accurate pronunciation is extremely important.

以下讓我們告訴你五招,教你利用Sagebooks APP音頻功能,提升孩子的聆聽能力和語文學習。


Below are 5 tips that will help you to best utilize the audio function of Sagebooks APP to boost your child’s listening skills and Chinese learning.

I. 利用QR聆聽 Scan and Listen
利用QR聆聽 Scan and Listen︱兒童學習中文教材︱思展圖書

打開Sagebooks APP,掃一掃要學習的那課第一頁左下角的QR,一面看着課文,一面直接聆聽全課各句。聆聽和看課文時最好讓孩子自己用食指引導視線,可以加強集中力。**


Open the Sagebooks APP, scan the QR at the bottom left corner of each lesson. Listen to the recording of the whole lesson while following the text. Encourage your child to use their index finger to point at the text and guide their eyes – it helps them focus. Repeat several times.**

II. 反覆聆聽單句 Listen to a particular sentence

Sagebooks APP的音頻功能可以讓你選擇單獨一句,重複播放,讓孩子可以徹底掌握正確的發音、個別字的聲調 (每課的生字也都有獨立一個MP3)、以及整個句子的抑揚頓挫。


Sagebooks APP allows you to loop and play a particular sentence. Play the sentence repeatedly so your child can accurately grasp the pronunciation and the expressive tone of the sentence. The new character of each lesson has its own audio clip. Listen to it repeatedly to get its correct intonation.

III. 聽力訓練活動1 Listening training 1

玩法:由家長選播單句,孩子從課文中找出正確句子。這個練習除了可以加深孩子對課文、文字的熟悉,還可以訓練孩子的專注力。


How to Play: You choose to play a particular sentence in the lesson, then ask your child to find the sentence that they just heard. This activity can help the child to become familiar with the text and the characters. It also trains their focus. To make it more challenging, you could choose to play a sentence from 2 lessons.

IV. 聽力訓練活動2 Listening training 2
聽力訓練活動︱兒童學習中文教材︱思展圖書

玩法:結合閱讀練習卡(也可自製字卡)。家長事先挑選好幾個同韻不同聲調的字 (必須都是孩子已學會認讀的),擺出字卡,例如:

  • 普通話:是 (啟蒙級) / 十 (啟蒙級) / 師 (萌芽級)
  • 粵語:子 (啟蒙級) / 知 (萌芽級) / 自 (萌芽級)

讓孩子仔細看一遍。看好後,利用APP個別聆聽那幾個字,徹底掌握其中異同。這種訓練可以加強孩子對聲調變化的聽覺敏感度。

你也可以將這個活動變成遊戲,由你選播一個字,孩子指出正確的字。

視乎孩子的年齡,由每次2張字卡開始,最多3張字卡就足夠。其他同韻字可以留到另一次玩。

How to Play: Make use of the Study Card (or you can make your own cards). You choose some characters that rhyme with each other, but not homophones (make sure your child has already learnt those characters). For example:

  • Putonghua:是 (Beginning) / 十 (Beginning) / 師 (Budding)
  • Cantonese:子 (Beginning) / 知 (Budding) / 自 (Budding)

Lay them in front of your child and allow them some time to study the cards. Then use the APP to play only those characters. Allow your child to recognise the similarities and distinguish the differences between them. This activity should be repeated many times and often. It increases the child’s sensitivity to the intonations.

You could also change this activity into a game by asking your child to FIND the correct character base on what is played.

Depending on your child, start from 2 characters each time. You should not use more than 3 characters at any one time even when there maybe more characters that rhyme the same. You could save them for another time.

V. 善用更多學習資源 Additional learning resources

我們將陸續推出《寶貝盒》、《反斗歌》等的音頻,孩子可聆聽和欣賞更多的專業朗讀。


More audio recordings will be added to the APP, such as those of Treasure Box and Flip-Flop Fun. Together, they will offer your child more listening practice.

** 要是你買的是舊版書,也可以下載QR的PDF (完整五級共500課的QR,清楚分級、分冊排列,完全免費),可以有相同的學習效果。


** If you’ve only got one of our earlier editions which doesn’t come with QR codes, please download the PDF file which includes QR of all 500 lessons, arranged according to each level and each book for easy access. It would provide you the same learning experience and it’s completely FREE.
