Little Reader Chinese Curriculum - Update for FREE!
All existing Chinese Curriculum Little Reader users may now update to the bigger and better Chinese Course - FOR FREE! Exotic and Wild Animals CD Case Image
What's new in the Little Reader Chinese Curriculum:
 At the end of each day's lesson, your child can play a fun picture or word game!
 The new curriculum includes 22 stories, and Story Time now starts from the very first day of Semester 2!
 In addition to the new game mode, lessons are now shorter, more varied, and several times more exciting!
Here's an example of a typical day in Semester 1:
» Word Flash » Multisensory 1
» Pattern Phonics 1 » Multisensory 2
» Pattern Phonics 2 » Multisensory 3
» Picture Flash » Game
Click here for more details about the new curriculum structure.
 All the pictures and videos have all been upgraded to high-definition versions to accommodate the ever-increasing screen sizes and screen resolutions. Animals and Transportation categories now come with animated videos in addition to real-life HD videos.
For those of you who are still using Little Reader software version 2, when you update to Little Reader v3, don't forget to download and import the new curriculum too!
Import the New Little Reader Curriculum
* The new Little Reader Chinese Curriculum update is currently available for Chinese (both Simplified and Traditional) Semester 1 and Semester 1+2 users.
Teach your child to read and speak in one of the world's most popular languages!
The Chinese Curriculum Pack for Little Reader will help you teach your young child to recognize thousands of Simplified or Traditional Chinese characters, understand their meanings, and to learn to speak Mandarin Chinese.
Get the Chinese Curriculum for Little Reader
This new curriculum update for the PC also means you can have the newly-formatted content on your iPad or Android tablet, too!
 Here's how to make sure you get your curriculum update: just remove or delete your old Chinese Curriculum on your iPad, iPhone or Android mobile and download the new one through the Little Reader Touch App!

You can go to Account > Purchases >Little Reader Curriculum and License Keys (section 2 on the left)

Then you scroll down ( depending on how many other curriculum you use it will be short or long scroll) and you will see "Chinese (CNS) Curriculum"  Proceed with downloading content and licenses, and when download completed simply import it into LR ( either by chosing "open with LR" when you start downloading or double clicking the downloaded file) After that updated curriculum will be imported into your LR and New Curriculum Course re-generated, all the data will be updated authomatically.

Just a tip, make sure that you are using the latest Version of the Little Reader!

I am using the latest reader. However, Pinyin 1 and pinyin 2 didn't work (only sound, no text appeared, it was blank), and word flash at the end, some words appeared, some didn't.

Any suggestions on what I could do?

Dear RonandReo,

I am sorry you experienced some problems!

I would suggest the following:

1) Use support ticketing system. Write the technical support at, that way you are able to provide them with all the information they will need to find the solution for you without the need to post it here for everyone to see

2) When you write technical support, please provide as much information as possible. The more specific, the better.

 - Which of our software is causing the issue

 - Date and time of problem (Please also give specific timezone or country where you are from so our tech support can track the logs in case something happened at that time period)

 - License key of the program

 - Version of the software being used
If you don't know what this is, you can find your software version by following this guide:

Give tech support a specific sample to search for. Especially if the issue concerns content or content playback. Like this: "My Chinese Simplified curriculum does not show images. For example: Day 007, Session 1, Multisensory, Action Words - I cannot see any images."

I am positive they will be able to pin point the problem and get you all set up with your lessons!

Have a wonderful day!

For sacakon and 211210:

The complete "Protocol format is not supported..." error message does mention what's causing the error: You are using an old version of the Little Reader software which is incompatible with the Chinese curriculum that you are trying to download.

To fix this problem, please update Little Reader by following the instructions here (as of today the latest version is 3.3.1500):

Once you've updated Little Reader, try downloading your Chinese curriculum again.

For RonandReo:

Have you written to us already? I don't think we got any support request from you from the past few days.

As an initial solution, try downloading your Chinese curriculum again, making sure that your Internet connection is stable throughout the download process.

If you're still having problems, kindly write to us as Skylark suggested earlier. As an alternative to our helpdesk ticketing system, you may email us directly at support[at]brillkids[dot]com.

Aside from what Skylark mentioned, please include these details when you write to us:

1. Any error message that you got when you were playing your Chinese lessons or when you tried to re-download your lessons (you may screenshots of the errors)

2. Your diagnostic report. For instructions on how to create a diagnostic report, see:

Hi 211210, please try checking your "Downloads" folder or wherever you usually save the files that you download - you may need to delete the older LR files (or any other file) from there since you don't need them anymore.

Once you've removed all old or unused files from your computer, do try downloading your curriculum again.

hi kezia
i did uninstalled little reader and reinstalled it (there are no courses except trial course as reflected on little reader).
is it because there are already 2 activations hence i cant download the curriculum? do i need to remove one? once removed, will i be able to activate w/o physical cds?

Unless you installed Little Reader on a different computer (i.e., reformatted or replacement computer), you don't need to remove your activation records.

How much available space do you have in your C:\ drive now?

Just in case there are other things causing your download problem, please create a diagnostic report and send it to us so we can troubleshoot further. (Click here for instructions)

How do I know if I am getting the updated curriculum on my iPad? When I go to "restore", it shows the date of the curriculum as being in November 2012.

Hi Elaida, if you already restored / downloaded the Chinese curriculum in your iPad, just go to Lesson Library > Courses and check any day's lesson from Chinese Sem 1 or 2. If you see a "Game" section in at the end of each session, that means you already have the updated curriculum.

Usually when there is a content update available for you, you will see a red circular icon on the app's "Download Lessons" button, and you will also see an "Updates" section when you go to the Download Lessons screen (it will appear to the left of the "Downloads" section). If you don't see any of those update signs, then that means you already have the latest version of your course or category.

Hello everyone,

I managed to update the Chinese curriculum after following steps given by Sylark & Kezia.
Thank you so much.

Now I am re-downloading the English curriculum because I accidentally tick the checkbox for LR to set course library to default setting.
This resulted in LR having the English trial course only.

Hi 211210, just letting you know that we received the diagnostic report that you sent the other day. I wrote back to you through our support email with our next suggestions, so please check if you got our message.
