Guest blog by The Chairman’s Bao
The Chairman’s Bao [TCB] is the most comprehensive online news-based graded reader for students of Chinese. We publish over 1,600 lessons each year and now have a library of over 4,500 lessons from beginner to advanced level.
Since August 2017, each lesson we publish features automatically-graded comprehension exercises which teachers can set for students through a personalised Teacher Portal. We work with over 200 global schools and universities and match to popular international curricula including, but not limited to: IGCSE, IB, and GCSE.
Students love having autonomy over their study and language learning is facilitated through features such as: Live Dictionary, Learning Hub for Vocab Study, Stroke Order Animation and Character Writing tools, graded, spoken audio, and much more.
We’ve had a great response from teachers of Chinese. Here’s what a few of them have to say.
“The Chairman’s Bao has made planning and resource finding so much easier! And my students engage with TCB articles for listening and reading in a way that never happens with dull text book exercises. No preparation needed.” – Dr Theresa Munford
“I wholeheartedly recommend The Chairman’s Bao to all students of Chinese, for self-learning or to supplement a formal course. The bite-sized bespoke articles, all graded according to HSK level, are current, interesting and well-written, and provide a wonderful incentive to keep students of all ages and levels motivated. The live dictionary, keyword list, grammar points, and comprehension questions are all invaluable aids both for self-learners and for busy teachers who simply don’t have the time to create their own materials on constantly evolving content.” – Dr Frances Weightman, University of Leeds
Our cross-platform study, facilitated through our website and app for iOS and Android, mean that students can study a multitude multiple locations and devices.
