Animated Stories: Peppa Pig series《粉红猪一家亲》

Sometimes, I like the Peppa Pig series 粉红猪一家亲. Not just because it is a UK production, the preschool level is a good entry point for many new learners. The basic stories also feature everyday activities such as attending playgroup, going swimming, visiting their grandparents, cousins, going to the playground or riding their bikes. In the original English versions, besides the English pronunciation and British accent is really pleasant to adopt, the scripts are written in simple forms.

From these six episodes, we would highlight some selected new Chinese words to learn:-
