您好! I'm Po Tim from Fortune Cookie Mom.
I'm a bilingual homeschooling mom of 4, born and raised in Hong Kong. I'm here to show you step by step how to start teaching your children Chinese in your lovely home from DAY 1.
Watch this 2 minute video to learn how you can help your child make connections and build a Chinese learning routine from zero to awesome!
Have you ever seen super successful bilingual families and wonders “How on earth do they teach kids Chinese?"
If you are new to teaching Chinese at home, seeing other people's comments on Facebook or IG on their awesome days can be intimidating.
If you don’t know Chinese yourself, it can be really frustrating to see people who popped out from nowhere showing off how fast and how many Chinese characters their kids have learned after a short period of time.
You’d love to see to have a positive experience of your own, but how? Do you know what is the secret to their success?
Even though teaching languages is my passion, I didn’t have any experience teaching my own children. I didn’t know how they would react and how to help them feel comfortable using another language. I dreaded the feeling of getting stuck and not knowing how to keep going.
When I started teaching my oldest child Chinese, I thought I must ONLY use Chinese to speak, to read, and to interact with her.
She rejected everything and didn’t like learning Chinese at all.
I failed!! She lost interest in learning Chinese before we even got started, How was I suppose to continue teaching her?
But then, things changed.
In less than a year, I created a practical system to incorporate learning the language and the culture and create memorable experience as a family.
Now, I home-school all four of my children both Chinese and English. My children love reading Chinese and English books, writing letters in Chinese to their grandparents and friends in Hong Kong, and enjoy using both languages in their lives.

Let's hear one of my students' experience with this course
Let us welcome Tam, a homeschooling mom of 2 and a Spanish teacher to share her experience with us.
I’m your teacher, Po Tim King.
I help parents and educators enjoy and confidently teach Chinese to kids at home. I do this by providing real-life practical tips, strategies, and tons of Chinese resources and printable. Helping my students create a well-balanced, enjoyable bilingual life-style.
Even though I am a native-Cantonese speaker, it’s not always sweet and easy to raise my four young children bilingual.
Before I decided to become a homeschooling mom, I was a teacher in a Chinese immersion program at an elementary school with a huge classroom, supporting co-workers, and tons of teaching resources, plus any support I needed. But I had a strong feeling of guilt for putting so much energy into teaching other children Chinese while not teaching mine. It pushed me to make one of the most important decision of my life -- teach my own children Chinese at home! I’m very grateful I did.
I discovered one of the SECRETS of raising bilingual children who are happy to learn both languages, is to provide a safe and comfortable learning environment at home and to create a consistent family-oriented learning routine. No expensive Chinese classes or tutors can replace human contact and family relationships.
Now, as a homeschooling mom of 4 and a blogger, I’ve helped countless parents/educators to teach Chinese at home for the past 3 years, and over 3000 people have joined my email list. I have successfully hosted 3 Challenges to help parents/ educators start teaching Chinese at home by providing printables, resources, and training.
And I’ve done all this because I truly enjoy all the ups and downs of raising and teaching my own children. I’m grateful for every opportunity I have to share with others through my blog and course.
So even if you’re new with no Chinese experience at all, or you are partly fluent in Chinese and want to teach your kid Chinese, INTRODUCING CHINESE AT HOME will inspire you and motivate you to start teaching right away.
Introducing Chinese at Home is such a valuable course for every aspect of our homeschooling! As a homeschooling mom of 5, I try to be very intentional with what I spend my time on, and ICaH is so worth every minute. Po Tim King provides useful lessons with bite-size goals that are so attainable no matter how busy our homeschooling days are; I love how the course builds up and starts from square 1 to help incorporate Chinese in to every day. Each lesson is like sitting down to coffee with a trusted friend; you leave feeling supported, uplifted, and empowered to set and take on the next goal. I've even used the information to help enrich our non-Chinese school subjects! As a student of Chinese myself, trying to expose my children to the world through multiple languages, Introducing Chinese at Home is an incredible resource and I'm so excited to continue putting in to practice the goals outlined in the course!
~ Kristi, Homeschooling Mom of 5
The Introduce Chinese at Home course was very inspiring! I am always looking for more ideas to help me teach my children Chinese. As a homeschooler, and a mother of many children, like myself, Po Tim has provided many ideas that she has found to be successful. I am especially impressed with her booklets and other resources at FortuneCookieMom.com. Creating my own little “China Town” has been a lot of fun! Here’s to developing more learning habits!
