Former Language Stars Teacher Publishes Book on Teaching Mandarin Chinese
Language Stars, the national leader in early childhood foreign language education with locations throughout the Chicago, Washington DC and Baltimore metropolitan areas, will host a free interactive Storytime with Yue Chen, author of "Meimei - A Beautiful Fish." Featuring games, an online puppet show/audio resources and a take home activity, the former Language Stars teacher will use her new book to fully immerse children in the Chinese language.
WHY: Yue Chen wrote and illustrated 'Meimei Story' to provide parents with a resource to reinforce the teaching of Mandarin Chinese to children. The first in a series, "Meimei - A Beautiful Fish" teaches children colors in Mandarin using illustrations and games.
"From my time as a Language Stars educator, I learned that having fun with the language learning process is the key to success for children," said Yue Chen. "My book was created based on the idea of being interactive, being simple, and being fun! I hope families in the Chicago area will come to my Storytime to learn Mandarin in an enjoyable and approachable way."
