(Not so) Daily Musing – More on Chinese

I’ve been teaching him Chinese songs recently and now he can sing 两只老虎, 我的朋友在哪裡 except in his usual fashion, he likes to deliberately change the lyrics. E.g. instead of 在这里, he will sing ‘stuck-ely’ or instead of 两只老虎, he’ll sing 两只爸爸. Not sure if this is a better way of teaching him but it certainly more fun 😉 I’m still trying to teach him single words but the problem with chinese is that modern nouns for the things he’s interested like vehicles and dinosaurs are really literal and long like tractor is called 拖拉机 which honestly to me sounds like dragging garbage ::facepalm::
