Kuang Kuang's Diary is a Chinese cartoon series of a young average student kuangkuang's school life  in eighties. It created by base on a true and exaggerated story and widely circulated in the eighties songs composed for children. The series has much content reflect on Chinese primary school life.  The language is funny, although with much comic and strong violence.


The Chinese is pretty easy, and usually with a lot repetition, so it will be easy to understand. Here are some links for watching the series on Youtube :

I don't know if there are translations or pinyin for whole series.  Following are the two of them with English subtitles that I know:

Yes, I totally agree with you. And I think it is a good idea to read kids materials with pinyin as readying complement although the content might be childish.  

Yes, it is good to start with a few things, short sentences and with a lot repetition.

As a nativer Chinese speaker, even I got scared by looking up at the first lesson from most adult text books, too many characters,the sentences are too long, then complicated grammar before the students 'digest' few character.

Thanks for posting.  I usually like using kids learning materials when first starting out.  I feel like too many beginner materials for adults try to teach everything under the sun rather than focusing in on a few things and being repetitive.  What do you think?
