Interactive Play and Games
Toddlers learn best through play. Incorporate Mandarin into their playtime activities.
Use building blocks to teach vocabulary, play hide-and-seek with Mandarin prompts, or engage in role-playing with Mandarin phrases.
Make learning a fun and enjoyable experience, and your child will naturally become more receptive to the language.
Enrol Your Child in a Mandarin Class
Lastly, it would be helpful to enrol your child in an enrichment programme dedicated to acquiring the language. We recommend our PlayClub programme, which is suitable for toddlers 18 months to 3 years. Through this playgroup, your child will immerse themselves in the wonderful world of Mandarin through stories, puppets, speech and drama activities, art and craft, songs, and healthy snacks.
Each term has a theme, which will introduce young ones to the various vocabulary words and cultivate a love for the language.

Remember to introduce the language in an engaging manner and to foster a lifelong love for it. Find opportunities to praise your child, as acknowledging every bit of effort they put in will give them the confidence to speak the language. Before you know it, you may just have a learner for life.
