Miffy and Her Friends: Miffy at School

Repetition is the key for little children to learn a language. That is why we observe a child repeat everything s/he hears until one day s/he can use the new words. In an environment the language is spoken most of the time, it is easy for the child to receive enough input; but what about an environment that the language is not used; for example, learning Chinese in a foreign country while the parents are not Chinese?
