Mastering Chinese the Fun Way

June 20, 2007 (PRLEAP.COM) Education News
London, UK June 20, 2007. Xihaha Ltd is pleased to announce the launch of Xihaha Online Chinese Children Bookshop!

“It all began when I was looking for a book to teach my 3-year-old daughter about Chinese. I was surprised that I had great difficulty trying to find something suitable for my child.” said one of the co-founder and partner of Xihaha Ltd, Ms. Chooi-Huey Ng. "We began talking to other parents and realized that they too faced the same problem, ‘We want something easy and fun; something which will make our children interested in learning Chinese!’ We soon started to search for Chinese books and learning materials at the online bookshops and the UK bookshops. We also discussed with Chinese community leaders and Chinese school teachers about the need for Chinese books. We eventually arrived at one conclusion: There are few Chinese books and learning materials in the UK; even less are books which are in line with the latest children learning principles. With this in mind, we established Xihaha Ltd in January 2007 to bridge this learning gap.” summarised Ms. Stephanie Tang, Xihaha Ltd co-founder and partner.

Xihaha offers a wide range of interesting Chinese educational materials that meet the needs for children of various age groups and learners with or without Chinese background. Their products have been selected to ensure an enjoyable learning experience for the young readers. Customers would be able to view and order these products from today, and will get free delivery service until 31st July 2007 for purchase above GBP5.00 (restricted to England, Scotland and Wales).

In conjunction with their launch, Xihaha Ltd will also be sponsoring a weekly radio programme starting from 23rd June 2007 (Saturday) through their media partner, Spectrum Radio (Cantonese Radio Station based in London). The broadcast will include Chinese children story-telling and there are attractive prizes to be won by the listeners.
