Even Pandas Learn Chinese!

This week we are having Panda Sale week, and will be including more articles about this peaceful, Chinese animal.

Are your kids having a hard time learning Chinese? Tell them pandas are learning Chinese, so they can too!

Last Friday, 2 of the world's most famous pandas are back on Chinese soil and they will be getting Chinese classes as well.

Tai Shan, 4, and Mei Lan, 3, arrived in Chengdu, China last February 26, 2010. They have gone back home as part of the deal with the US that adult pandas are to return home when they turn 3. The pandas will go their separate ways after. Tai Shan will be go home to Bifengxia Panda Base. Mei Lan goes on to Chengdu Research Base of Giant Panda Breeding.

Interestingly enough, both pandas will be having teachers to be taught Chinese. Tai Shan will be immersed in Mandarin while Mei Lan will be immersed in the Sichuan dialect.

I think Tai Shan will be able to appreciate Mandarin if he sees how Bao Bei panda or Little Pim is speaking it and sharing to kids Mandarin words and phrases that are useful to kids.
