Chinese is often regarded as a difficult language to learn but taught the right way, it can be one of the easiest. Using the newest research-based teaching strategies, Xian Yun 2018 Chinese Language Summer Camp aims to help students of all language backgrounds acquire a significant Chinese reading vocabulary in a short amount of time.
This method utilizes a linking-word game technique to help students recognize Chinese characters with shared radicals or features. Students start out with one Chinese character and gradually build their reading and writing vocabulary with the help of flash cards and stroke-order activities.
