Here’s what the experts say about Culture Cubs:

Culture Cubs transports children, no matter where they are in the world, out of their normal classroom setting and provides them with a series of Chinese cultural and language adventures... It not only generates interest and understanding of Chinese culture amongst our English-speaking children, but also fosters an interest amongst our Chinese-speaking students in learning about Western culture and the English language itself… I have always believed that language teaching should be fun and interactive. Children learn better when they are enjoying themselves and respond well to materials which they can relate to easily.

As a parent who is trying to encourage my children to learn both English and Mandarin, I know how “slim” the choices of bilingual media programming are.  My kids get exhausted and distracted by the high-speed, high-tech “MTV-style” of programming, but are easily bored by the more traditional Mandarin language programming.  This video successfully fills a gap in early-childhood Mandarin/English educational programming with an innovative series that appeals to both parents and kids.   Simply play this video for a room full of 3-4 year olds and their parents and you’ll find both groups to be equally charmed

-Lucy Cummings, PhD, London

Culture Cubs is well designed from the educational and motivational standpoint. It develops the learner’s concepts and skills in a way that sustains attention, being sufficiently entertaining (yes, even an adult can enjoy it, and incidentally learn a little Mandarin) to ensure active participation from beginning to end.
