Action rhymes, conversation rhymes, catchy chants and skits…what a magical way to start students’ journey of learning Chinese. Rhymes and chants are songs without melodies, and they make learning Chinese easy and fun. The same way songs stay in our memory long after facts have faded, the words connected to rhymes stay with us.
