The need to know dinosaur names in mandarin
My wife insists that my 4-year old only speaks Mandarin with her ("妈妈听不懂. 说中国话！"). Recently, he tries to use German wherever he can.
But often he just cannot comply, because he lacks his core vocab: "Mama, what is Protoceratops in Chinese?"
I had to help out here. Thanks to Wikipedia I could answer my son's (and in turn my wife's) most pressing questions:
Tyrannosaurus Rex: 霸王龙
These are the ones my son wanted to know. I guess he will ask more later (probably all the Chinese ones like the Huangfengosaurus - he will be in Beijing soon).
We definately need a lesson on Dinosaurs.
New lesson idea? Please contact us.
