I’ll share a secret. One that is more of a ‘parents-only’ advice.
I have a little girl (almost 2 years old now) and thanks to her, watching TV show in chinese now is something easier, funny and a family thing.
When I was learning English something that helped me a lot was to turn on the TV, look for TV shows and set for original audio. From Friends to The WestWing… from South Park to CNN (although it’s a bit harder to follow the news when you don’t quite understand the language)…
But watching TV in mandarin is a bigger challenge.
So I needed something simpler. A TV show that I had previous knowledge of the content. “try watching kids tv shows” my tutor said.
The answer was 珮珮猪! Peppa Pig!! Short length. Easy to understand. I already knew what was coming, because when you’re a dad you watch the same episode 20 times a week. Search for Peppa Pig Mandarin or Peppa Pig Chinese or just 珮珮猪. You’ll find tons of episodes. But I’m running out of Peppa. So here comes the question.
Besides Peppa Pig, does anyone know other shows I could watch? Like Dora? Mickey Mouse Club house? I can’t watch Peppa’s ballet class anymore.
