Better Immersion Readers is a series of storybooks for young learners aged 4-7 with no prior exposure to Chinese. This series of 68 developmentally appropriate storybooks is designed with the vision to build learners’ day-to-day Chinese language communication skills from scratch, as well as to prepare them for future academic learning. As children learn best when the content is relevant and fun, the topics and storylines reflect their daily experiences, as well as the surroundings that they live in.
It highlights a predictable narrative structure and scaffolding strategies for vocabulary and sentence pattern building, which give children the opportunity to quickly comprehend and apply what they learn to real-life situations. It also exposes children to basic concepts and subject-specific vocabularies for mathematics, science, social studies and cultures, which connect with the topics they learn in school.
Each storybook is paired with fun and vivid illustrations and audio to assist comprehension and language application.
