TESTIMONIALS

"Student-centered"

Not only is it a tool that has never been seen before, but it truly applies the teaching philosophy of ‘student-centered’ education.

Chih-ping Sobelman
Former Coordinator of Chinese Language Program at Columbia University

"A Bridge for Beginners"

ChineseCUBES acts as a bridge for beginners to cross the chasm of intimidation when learning Chinese, especially in reading and writing Chinese characters.

Shuhan Wang
Former Deputy Director of the National Foreign Language Center at University of Maryland

"Ingenious"

This is such an ingenious tool. The kids love to manipulate the blocks and to search through them. Then, to have the program read them and pop up the pinyin bubbles is just amazing! My students all said they would love to have it at home once it is ready.

Robin Harvey
Coordinator, NYU Developing Chinese Language Teachers (DCLT)

"Amazing"

My experience with ChineseCUBES was definitely insightful. The kids enjoyed it, and so did I. It opened more options for me to learn a new language. It gave kids a chance to learn something new over the summer. It's something the kids can take back with them even in school. Thank you so much for this opportunity. It was amazing and I would love to do it again.

Pilot Teacher, Grace CDF Freedom Schools (Mount Vernon, NY)

"Exceptional"

This program was exceptional, honestly. It was extremely easy to retain the information and to remember. The kids also found it easy to retain the information. I wish the computers and Internet at our site were more accessible so that we could have done more but other than that it was great.

Elizabeth Anoff
Pilot Teacher, Grace CDF Freedom Schools (Mount Vernon, NY)

"Enjoyable"

"I really enjoyed learning and teaching Chinese. I just wish I was able to continue and not stop so early. The middle schoolers really enjoyed learning about the language.

"Happily Study Chinese"

The multi-media interactive teaching method of ChineseCUBES assists students to learn the rules of combining words and forming sentences. The student responses in the class have been very good. The classroom atmosphere is lively, and they study quite happily. I hope that we can continue to use ChineseCUBES in class.

"Promotes the Desire to Write Characters"

The character study function in ChineseCUBES allows students to watch stroke order animations of characters, while at the same time using the supplied writing pad to practice writing. This promotes the student's desire to write characters, as well as their ability to recognize and write characters.

Teacher Luo Guomei
Shuang Wen Academy Network (New York, NY)

"Keeps Students Enthusiastic and Interested"

Classroom response has been positive, and the student's reactions have been enthusiastic. The AR animations are vivid and lively, which attracts the interest of students. As for studying characters, ChineseCUBES has stroke order animations, giving students the ability to see and write along with the animation. This is a very important function of the program.

Teacher Zhao Yijun
Shuang Wen Academy Network (New York, NY)

"Study Chinese Effectively"

ChineseCUBES not only increases a student's interest in learning, it also truly helps students who have no background in Chinese to effectively study and form a deep impression of the language.

Teacher Liang Zaiqing
Tzu Chi Academy, Long Island, New York

"Easy to Start"

It is so easy to start using the program. The program was especially useful in helping my students understand Chinese grammar and sentence structure. This software is really awesome. I believe it will be so helpful to learners who want to learn Chinese. Moreover, the software program enables students to easily learn by themselves but it can also be a very good teaching tool for teachers. Thanks for this wonderful software.
