Pororo in Mandarin Chinese DVD Clip

Yup, another clip that I took by pointing my mobile phone at the TV and taking a short video, so the quality of this clip is not great. It's just up to show all of you Pororo fans who asked about Chinese versions what Pororo looks like in Chinese.

The Pororo video set, we have the first set of two DVDs as well as the second set of two DVDs, is in Mandarin and English with subtitle options for both languages, which is nifty because you can watch in Chinese and read the English and vice versa.

TMNT in Chinese

Another video camera pointed at the tv clip:

The turtles speaking Chinese is very fun, especially if your child has already seen the movie TMNT in English.

You can buy these DVDs and VCDs in Mandarin Chinese for kids at our shop Popping Pandas.

Teletubbies Speaking Mandarin Chinese

Here is my shaky clip from pointing the video camera at the tv screen:

Anything that encourages children to listen to spoken Chinese is great. If you speak Chinese and can sing, you're golden! Otherwise, our DVDs and programs are fantastic for listening practice. It is important for children to soak in the tones and pronunciation now. Vocabulary enhancement and everything else can come later.
