Congrats on the new job! It really depends on the level of English your students have, and how much literacy they have in their native language. If they are literate in their home language, they...

I wouldn't worry about finding books in Chinese; I wouldn't know where to look. I thought, if he has books already, encourage him to read them. If you use book boxes, have some appropriate books in...
