iChineseReader 20 proficiency levels
iChineseReader is the most widely used online reading platform for K-12 Chinese programs in the United Sates.
Thousands of interactive Chinese e-books are placed at 20 proficiency levels and cover teaching content and subject areas across grades K–12.
When our teachers first learned about iChineseReader, we immediately became thrilled-it is exactly what we are looking for! All the dual language classes from our school have used the program effectively in and outside of the classroom. We consider iChineseReader as the best online reading program because it aligns with common core standards and content objectives, tailors leveled reading texts in different genres and offers comprehension assessments.
iChineseReader is a very effective and interactive Mandarin reading program for students to practice reading and improve comprehension skills in class and at home. My students love it, and they say it is the coolest online reading program ever! I always use iChineseReader in class for my students to review and reinforce the vocabulary and grammar for each unit. I also set up readings from iChineseReader for their homework or afterschool reading practice. It works really well!
I'm not a Mandarin speaker. As a parent of a language immersion student, I wonder how well my son is picking up the language. My own son enjoyed the reading in iChineseReader more than the alternative Mandarin practice that my wife would assign to him over the summer. I would recommend iChineseReader to any parent who wants their child to practice reading Chinese. The reports you can get from iChineseReader as a parent or teacher allow you to track how much your kids or students are reading and comprehending.
Our school group subscribers are from immersion, foreign language and heritage Chinese programs in North America, Asia and Europe.
