If you want to know more about the Chinese New Year, this is a story of Nian, a horrible monster and the origins of the Lunar New Year. Children will learn why firecrackers, noisemakers, and the colour red are part of the Chinese New Year’s traditions. The story is being told by a 10-year-old bilingual boy who speaks Polish and English and wants to learn Mandarin and Japanese.
We asked trilingual children and their mums to talk to us in all the languages they can speak. In this video, you can see how the children switch from one language to another, depending on what they hear.
