Chinese made fun & easy!
- Learning without screen-time!
I can't read chinese books to my children, but with this, it doesn't matter because they get to hear it properly.
I love how I can sit down with my child and explore the book together. We are both learning at the same time, and if I forget the words, we just go and tap on the book! My kid loves the chinese words and songs and different animal noises.
My kid plays on this all the time, and he doesn't even realise he's learning! Lifesaver!
Watch to see how easy it is to learn Chinese!
Welcome to Language Monkey!
Hi, we're Holly and Theo, the creators of Language Monkey Books. We're busy parents with kids learning Chinese while living in New Zealand. We've tried many ways and researched extensively on techniques and approaches, only to keep coming back to books as being one of the most powerful ways to immerse children in language. But, ordinary books rely on a strong foundation of being able to read and pronounce correctly (with parental support), and are not focused on learning Chinese as a secondary language. This makes learning Chinese with ordinary books especially difficult because it is a tonal language, where saying words and pronunciation is critical. Our innovative Language Monkey Readers with special bilingual books solves those problems, and will keep your kids excited on learning Chinese on their own! We'll be sharing other tips and tricks to help you on your journey too, so please sign up for updates!
We're always keen to see and hear your feedback on what's great and what you would like to see in our future books. Songs, nursery rhymes, stories or another language? Drop us an email, we'd love to hear from you!
The smart way to learn
Become immersed in chinese without computer screens or phones!
Children learn language through sound and conversation (not character recognition!), especially chinese because it is a tonal language. Learn from hearing across many topics and dialogue explaining 500+ words.
Language Monkey ensures you learn to pronounce words the right way!
