Another useful resource for learning Chinese, with loads of links categorized by topic, which can be added to by readers.

Since I’ve started this site, I’ve learned that there are actually quite a few websites designed for educators of Chinese language, which can also be useful resources for parents, including the Mandarin Center, which I mentioned earlier. Thanks to an email from a Hao Mama reader, I have also learned about two other sites, BetterChinese.com, run by the publisher of the curriculum materials used by the immersion programs in the San Francisco School District and San Francisco’s Chinese-American International School; and K12Mandarin, a blog for Chinese as a Foreign Language educators. Enjoy!
I just discovered a great resource, aimed primarily at teachers of Chinese language at all levels, but it has a tremendous amount of information for parents too. The CAIS Institute, a project of the San Francisco-based Chinese American International School, one of the oldest Chinese immersion schools in the country, has started a Mandarin Center as a resource center and community forum for Chinese educators. The site includes lists of schools that offer Chinese, textbooks and story books, videos, websites, and much more.
I haven’t had time to thoroughly browse the site but can see it has a lot to offer.
