Another way we can improve our children’s discernment is through games and activities. There are plenty of activities you can find online and we will likely include some in a future post, but for now, here are a few words and sensations you can teach your child just from things in your house.
To teach words about taste, have your child try or taste foods that are sweet, sour, bitter, spicy, cold, or warm.To teach words about materials and sensory details, you can have them touch silk, fur, plastic, sand paper, different rocks, glass, wood, and other materials.
Hopefully, we have given you some inspiration on how you can expand your child’s Chinese vocabulary from your daily life. All of these words will be of great assistance as your child levels up their Chinese. There are few things as frustrating as not being able to describe your everyday life, and providing our children the means to do so is a gift.
