Students are introduced to Mandarin Chinese through a series of dynamic and engaging animations based on authentic Chinese stories. These stories share an aspect of Chinese culture and language from famous myths to historical tales familiar to all Chinese children. Each story introduces key vocabulary words and phrases that are then practiced through a series interactive games and activities. In addition, other video and media materials are used to further demonstrate culture and daily life in China. Students are introduced to simplified Characters throughout the course and targeted character based activities help to prepare students how to read and write Chinese characters. Students are challenged with comprehension quizzes at the end of every unit, as well as teacher-graded assignments where they will be able to speak Mandarin Chinese.

Many K12 courses utilize physical materials in addition to the online content. These materials may include the following.
K12 Standard Kits
