Welcome to our Blog "aka" Why have a Blog at all?

After years and years of looking for the best materials to help families learn Chinese together, the time has come to share insights about what made our list of favorites. 

Once a month or so, we'll feature something (app, program, book, CD, DVD) we love and use.  We won't sugarcoat it - strengths and weaknesses will be highlighted.  Although nothing is perfect, the goal is to talk about products we like and use; not to criticize products we didn't purchase or stopped using out of frustration.   

Readers are invited to add their thoughts and feelings.  Please remember the golden rule.  We're not here to flame something we really don't like.  Product recommendations are always welcome.  Please note, if you would like to see a product reviewed that we do not already own and use, we are happy to do so only after receiving a preview copy.  If we don't like it, we won't flame it here.  We will not purchase products specifically to conduct a review.  We only buy what we like for our own use at home or in the Chinese for Families school.

We invite you to join the Chinese for Families Network:
