After last week’s “Insects Chinese Vocabulary” post, I’ve received many requests for more of this kind of lessons. So here you are, let’s learn how to say zoo animals in Chinese!
Zoo is always a fascinating place for kids to visit, again and again. There are many animals living in the zoo and that makes it a great learning opportunity for children: not only the animals themselves, but also maybe some Chinese.
