HomeSchool - Educational Programs - QiaoHu

A few months ago, daddy chanced upon this Taiwanese children program on the internet. We downloaded a few episodes and T enjoys watching it very much. There are many action songs (involving both parent and child) on this program and T and I will play along when to the music. Amazingly, T seems to have picked up quite a bit of mandarin from watching this show. I try to let her watch an episode every day (when she doesn't insist on watching Disney playhouse).
I have tried to set Sat & Sun as mandarin day, but find myself tuning to full English before lunch. Must make a note to work harder on this.
Word of comfort is that school teacher tells us that T is able to understand what mandarin teacher tells her at school. (Every Monday is Mandarin day in school)
