New U.S. Children's Show Teaching Chinese
A new children's cartoon debuted on Nickelodeon in the U.S. last week. It's called Ni Hao Kai-lan and it looks like it's trying to do for Chinese what Dora the Explorer has done for Spanish. Here's a description from Nickelodeon's site:
I managed to watch one episode that was about dragon boat racing. Even though I'm not exactly its target demographic, it was amusing hearing English-speaking cartoon characters occasionally break into Chinese. Anyway, just another sign of the growing popularity of Chinese here in the states.
