Playful learning, steady growing

Whether you are new to hihilulu, or you have been following us for a long journey, you must know that happy learning through theme-based kids' cartoons is one of the pillars of hihilulu pedagogy. 

Watching the theme-based cartoons, learning new Chinese expressions, discussing various perspectives around the theme story are not only for learning Chinese, but promoting a creative and healthy communication habit between parents and kids.

In hihiulu App's Gameroom or Playroom, search keywords such as Laughter/ 笑seed /种子, festival/ 节日etc. and practice listening, speaking, writing, and reading skills.




There is another popular slang among Chinese people:

笑一笑, 十年少 Xiào yīxiào, shí niánshào

Laughing, make you 10 years younger!
