Mandarin songs for the little ones


Tagged: ,

If you’re looking for some background Mandarin songs and rhymes for your preschoolers to listen to at home, listen to these two albums on Spotify for free:

“Chinese Children’s Classics v1.0” by A Little Mandarin:
“Learn Chinese by Singing Kids Songs” by Cuishan He – an album of 36 songs
(Or you can purchase them on iTunes.)
Note that for any of the songs that you have heard in our classes as well, the lyrics could be different from Ni Hao CC’s ones as we have specially translated ours to match the English rhyme meanings.
Chinese ones are usually translated to match sounds and rhyming, not necessarily meaning – which we think is confusing for an English speaker as we end up mistaking the words to mean something different.
Happy listening : )
