My son was engaged the whole time and the teacher did an excellent job with the kids...very kind for a beginner and made it so fun for them too!

Improvements:

Nothing. Learning a language just takes practice and this is a great way to start.

I like the exposure my daughter receives to a second language. I love that there’s English and then Chinese translation.

Improvements:

I wish the instructor would mute the children during Storytime. There was one child that kept interrupting. We are paying to hear the teacher, not the student. Other virtual classes I have attended would mute the students and then unmute them when it’s time to speak.

Loved:

Read several storybooks of the same topic, like the "vehicles". Let the students draw pictures while listening to the two teachers reading the stories in English and Mandarin sentence by sentence.

Improvements:

Too many youtube cartoon songs. I don't think using the class time to watch youtube videos is a good education. They watched a lot at home already. Little teaching about the meaning and writing method. Only shows the character with pinyin on the board doesn't help my 3 years old learn how to write Chinese characters. It's better to make kiddos understand why the characters look like this. How to write them stroke by stroke. Otherwise, it means nothing. And hope the teachers could mute kidswhile

Response from iCanMandarin

Thank you for your feedback, there is always room for us to improve. iCanMandarin offers more than a dozen courses for different ages and different objectives, and story time is just one of them. I will revise the story time description to make the objectives more clear. Our language classes may be a better fit for you, please take a look: https://www.icanmandarin.com/free-trial

This class was so enjoyable and I'm not sure who had more fun - me or my child! Elsa was so patient with the children but also great at moving the class along. I was also so impressed by the book she read (and authored!) and really liked the guest instructor and diversity in activities. The class, despite it being virtual, was still personal and engaging. I definitely signed up for extra sessions.

Improvements:

Maybe the Chinese translations could be a little slower, but I don't speak Mandarin and that might be a biased opinion.
