Talking to young children

Suggested Difficulty (Elementary etc): Intermediate_
Video or Audio: Video
Lesson Idea: Hi Team,

I’m curious if you could create a lesson or video about the concept of talking in Mandarin to young children and what specific words you would use with them as opposed to when you talk to adults. What kind of phrases that can be used or words that you only use with them that would be odd to use with adults. For example: in English we say to young children that they are so silly, but it would be weird to say this to an adult in the same context. A different word or phrase would be used.


Hi Alanna,

That’s an interesting topic! Thanks for your suggestion. We’ll take it in consideration for our upcoming lessons.
