Baby needs a haircut every now and then. Check out how I weave some Chinese into such a routine activity, so the language fits right into Jaymee’s daily life. Also, you can practice each time you visit the barber!
Hello there! Today I am taking Jaymee for a haircut because she desperately needs one. Come along with us and I’ll share with you how I integrate Chinese language learning into a routine activity like a trip to the barber.
But before we get there, the car ride presents plenty of opportunities for us to interact.
I am a big fan of learning Chinese in a natural environment – that way she finds the language meaningful because it relates to her own experiences.

In my interactions with Jaymee, I try to keep it as natural as possible. Speaking slowly is the order of the day, especially when I come to keywords.
