Don’t un­der­es­ti­mate the power of Youtube as an in­struc­tional tool. “While there are nu­mer­ous spe­cialised ap­pli­ca­tions for lan­guage learn­ing, we should not ne­glect the fact that many main­stream tech­nol­ogy of­fer­ings are also ef­fec­tive learn­ing aids,” says Dan Feng. “You can eas­ily find video clips of nurs­ery rhymes, chil­dren’s songs, sk­its, car­toons and more that have al­ready been subti­tled and trans­lated.”

Sim­ply type key­words like “Man­darin for chil­dren” into Youtube’s search en­gine, and voila – you’ll have plenty of teach­ing re­sources at your fin­ger­tips.
