Nothing's more important than family, and nothing demonstrates the nuances of the Chinese language like talking about family. Whether it's introducing one's parents, grandparents, and children or the best ways to discuss marriage and relationships, this program illustrates practical techniques for talking about home life and family connections in Chinese. Cultural topics include: young people in Beijing and their opinions about traditional values, festivities at a country wedding, socializing at family gatherings, and the influence of Western trends on Chinese families and relationships.
