Movies, TV shows, music, comic books, audio books, etc. can also tell stories.
When we think of stories, we often only consider the written medium. However, there are so many ways to tell stories. We can take advantage of technology and the ever-shrinking world to access all different kinds of media in Chinese.
Movies, shows, and even music also tell stories and can capture the kids who don’t necessarily have the literacy to appreciate Chinese books. These are great for building up Chinese comprehension while being visually and auditorily engaging.
Through all these different mediums, we can use the art and power of storytelling to help ease our kids into Chinese material and expose them to Chinese in ways that are not as intimidating as talking to people in Chinese or doing Chinese homework.
