BingoChinese is great for shy children. It gives them a chance to practice speaking in a private, comfortable setting with a supportive and encouraging tutor. Our tutors are great at connecting with kids and making them feel comfortable. Many parents tell us that after a few lessons with BingoChinese their child is often more confident speaking their second language at school or with relatives.
For some children it can take a few lessons for them to warm up, and at first, they may do more listening than speaking. This is natural, and there is still a lot of learning going on as your child absorbs what the tutor is saying.
We think the BingoChinese experience will feel pretty different to your child than most other foreign language learning experiences. Our tutors are experts at engaging children’s interests with topics they care about. Whether your child has a passion for cats or the best World Cup soccer moments, we’ve found most kids become motivated to express their point of view when it’s something they care about.
