Learn PINYIN through Kamishibai stories!

Kamishibai (kah-mee-she-bye) or ˇ§paper-theatreˇ¨ is a form of visual and participatory storytelling originated in Japan. This form of storytelling is used to expose your child to the sounds of PINYIN in the M-Clan Programme. Your child will be encouraged to say the vocabulary related to the target PINYIN sound naturally in the story. They will acquire the sounds, build vocabulary and develop oral proficiency while having fun. This programme covers listening, speaking, reading and writing skills, but with strong emphasis on oral skills and listening comprehension.
