Abstract Shot entirely on location in and around Beijing, this program follows a group of Chinese schoolchildren through their daily lives as it demonstrates the meanings and usages of numerous Mandarin words, phrases, and expressions. Viewers accompany the children as they move about Beijing, take a trip to the Great Wall of China, and relax at home. Additional lessons focus on a family meal, a shopping trip, and a day in the life of a Chinese school. A great learning tool that mixes fun, facts, and real-world situations to reinforce language comprehension.
