  • CDNIS Chinese Studies Department in primary school has been using Mandarin Matrix reading series for the last 3 years as our reading programme. Teachers like the color coded leveled series because it's easy for them to differentiate. Students like the series because it's colorful, the characters are attractive to this age group, the stories are matching to their proficiency level, they can manage the reading by themselves without extra help.

    - Penny Pan Director of Chinese Studies, CDNIS
  • “My students, especially the 5th grade, love the program very much! It keeps their motivation and interest of learning Chinese high. This program is also a good supplement for our current curriculum. Thank you again for your time and help!”

    - Jessica Gong, Chinese teacher, Ross School, United States
  • “I particularly like the high production values of these books – they look good and have been carefully thought out to provide progression from reading single words to whole books. Meanwhile the high quality of the visual information not only assists children in decoding the text but gives an excellent springboard to talk about the Chinese culture.”

    - Helen Lewis, Chinese teacher, University of Warwick, United Kingdom
