10 year old dd#2 “Georgia” is moving along, recording about one to one and half idiom stories a week.
三十六計之第四/五計：以逸待勞 ＆ 趁火打劫
We are moving along just fine. She still needs work on prosody, which encompasses intonation, tone, stress, and rhythm, but that should come with time and more practice.
三十六計之第二/三計：圍魏救趙 ＆ 借刀殺人
DD#2 “Georgia” (10 years old) is catching on. I think we spent a little more than an hour from beginning to the end on each of these. I started by explaining to her the scenario and reading it once for her. She then practiced reading it for 20-30 minutes or so. I worked with her to fine tune the prosody (the patterns of stress and intonation in a language) or 抑揚頓挫. We then spent about 20 minutes recording the video. We take about two days to record each story. I think she is going to get faster and faster with each subsequent chapter.
Stratagem #2: 圍魏救趙
Stratagem #3: 借刀殺人
On a different note, I can’t figure out why any publisher would think the complexity of the language and story would be appropriate for young kids. Do you not think this is more appropriate for kids at least in the third grade?
