Learn Mandarin: Peppa Pig S01E07 Part 4

This is a good segment for practicing listening comprehension in Chinese and test yourself on how much you’ve learned from previous Peppa Pig episodes on Learn Chinese with Peppa Pig. Most of the vocabulary and grammar points have been covered before.

If you don’t understand (almost) everything, you know you haven’t maximized how much you can learn on Learn Chinese with Peppa Pig!!

This is also the last segment of S01E07, as there were lots of breaks between dialogues. I have already selected the next episode to write about!

Too many to list. I am sure you can take away a few things from this segment.

I thought I had to cover this episode because it’s so relevant to today’s world in a pandemic! If you are working from home and have young children, I am sure you can relate to this episode.
