Regarding the video, it is actually not suitable for very young children (especially before the age of 3). One is that it is not good for the eyes, and the other is because watching the video is a passive way, that is, whatever the video plays, the child can watch it. It is easy to lose concentration when they grow up.If you read Chinese paper books from an early age, your child will gradually develop the habit of active reading, and it will be easier to control his attention in the future. But for older children, some meaningful videos can help engage the little ones to learn. Since it is learning Chinese, we recommend finding some materials with Chinese cultural characteristics. If there are no materials, at least find Chinese dubbing materials.
There are also some parents who will suddenly press pause and explain the knowledge points when watching the video with their children. We do not recommend this. A better way is to learn about the knowledge points that will appear in the video in advance, then play the video, and finally let the children describe what they saw.If you want to press pause, it is best to remind in advance so that the child can be prepared.The other is how to control the time and frequency of watching videos for children. In fact, when children are not very interested in learning Chinese, they can choose videos to be active. We need to be able to judge whether we have learned something based on the child's homework performance, instead of blindly choosing video to assist, which will also make the child dependent, so usually once a week is enough.We have brought you some specific information, parents can choose the right time to take a look with their children!
