He advocates children learning a second language through the native country’s culture and background. Dr. Hill has published many important books about sociolinguistics and psycholinguistics.

While the students learn in English, they also get to see how the contents are expressed in Mandarin.  Even the students who can’t fully understand English can enjoy the fun of reading. This is the foundation of active learning.
