Mandarin Videos for PronunciationQuick View

Mandarin Videos for Pronunciation

Mandarin Vidoes for Pronunciation are a quick, easy and fun way for pupils to learn new words either with the teacher or by themselves at home. These Mandarin Videos for Pronunciation can be used by the teacher in the classroom or by the pupil for self-study at home. The videos will run through the vocabulary for Happy Chinese (快乐汉语 Kuai Le Han Yu) books 1 and 2. This video will display vocabulary with Charcater/ Pinyin and English meaning and will also pronounce each word. It will then lead the viewer through pronunciation drills. At the end of the video, just the vocabulary (characters only) will be displayed for pupils to pronounce by themselves. In my experience, playing these videos twice at the start of each lesson allows pupils to learn the words faster with correct tonal usage. It also allows them to recognise characters without having to check the Pinyin.
