  1. When I google 丹尼尔和邻居们 or 小老虎丹尼尔, I found Daniel Tiger's Neighborhood dialogue dubbed in Mandarin (the songs are still in English).
  2. I'm also hoping for one in Chinese!
  3. These are in Mandarin https://www.youtube.com/results?search_query=%E6%B0%B4%E6%9E%9C%E5%86%B0%E6%B7%87%E6%B7%8B

    Hello from Los Angeles!

    Anyone else on here from LA area? I have a 1yo son and would love to eventually be able to do a Cantonese playgroup with other parents who have kids around the same age.

    Introduce yourself! 介紹自己!

    Hi everyone, I was born and raised in Los Angeles. My first language was Cantonese but English is no doubt the language I am most comfortable with. My grandparents are originally from the Guangdong province, but my parents were both born in different parts of Southeast Asia (then met in LA!) I still mostly speak to my parents in Cantonese, and I'd say my level of Cantonese is pretty good for conversations but I think my vocabulary could use a lot of improving. I started going to weekend Chinese school to learn Mandarin at the age of 5 and continued that for TEN YEARS. As a result, I can understand Mandarin and can get by conversationally. My message comes across but I don't always say what I need to say in the best possible way... just the best way I know how. I can also read and write. I'm married to a Cambodian American and we have a 1-year-old son who I speak Cantonese to. My husband is learning Cantonese with my son. If he can say it in Cantonese, he will, otherwise, he speaks to him in English. Sometimes I read to my son in Cantonese and sometimes in Mandarin, but I rarely speak to him in Mandarin. He also attends a home daycare where the owner regularly uses both Cantonese and Mandarin, so I'm hoping that the early exposure means that he'll be trilingual in Cantonese, Mandarin, and English.
