How about reading stories featuring animals?


#1

Suggested difficulty : elementary to upper-intermediate
Video or Audio : audio

Lesson idea :

Hi @Constance_Fang and Team,

Goal : providing a type of vocabulary that you can’t find anywhere else.

I’ve also found a few interesting stories for kids [ 儿童故事 ] on http://m.tonghua5.com (not short enough maybe to fit in with your format)

On the mobile version of the website (smartphone), there’s a search bar : enter
猴子 or 老虎 or 老鼠 or 猫 or 兔子 (animals) 。。。

Yes, tools can allow us to annotate the texts but Chinesepod lessons offer much more (vocabulary, translation of the whole text, explanations, grammar, and audio)

I like this idea! Perhaps some traditional stories? Fables? And Jātaka tales?

You can start with a lesson on the Chinese Zodiac !!

Cheers, Peggy

Um … Not exactly the same kind of fiction, with talking animals, that I’m looking for … (Just simple stories, traditional or not, but no religious background) … Some books for children in China got plenty of these stories … Only problem : the length (Chinesepod lessons are short so we need short tales). Anyway, thanks for trying to help me.
