Nihao Kilan

i was flipping through the channels the other day and I was reading the titles of the programs. After I was surfing for awhile i noticed the word “Nihao”! Well thats about all the Chinese that I know other than Thank You and What Are You Doing Tomorrow. But anyways I flipped back and it was on Nickelodeon! I was really surprised but I thought it was cool. For teaching children Spanish they have “Dora the Explorer” and now to teach children Chinese they have “Nihao Kilan”. This is going to be a major language to know, especially in the next decade, I guarantee it. I actually watched half of the show and I thought it was a pretty good show. There were only a couple of Chinese words but you got to expose them somehow to Chinese. Now I don’t care to watch it again but I do think it’s a great idea. China is becoming a major power piece within world economics. I also found this interesting because I have decided on taking Mandarin next year at Fayetteville State University. They are going to be offering a minor in Chinese and I am going for that. But no worries I will continue to study Korean! 🙂
