1.Say the names of places such as forest and grassland
2. Ask and answer questions about places
When we ask a question in Mandarin, the words order is different from that of a question in English. In details, the words of places are:
森林 sēn lín (forest)
草原 cǎo yuán (savanna)
住 zhù (live)
哪儿 nǎr (where)
大象住在哪儿？ Dà xiàng zhù zài nǎr? (Where do elephants live?)
大象住在森林里。 Dà xiàng zhù zài sēn lín lǐ. (Elephants live in the forest.)
狮子住在哪儿？ Shī zi zhù zài nǎr? (Where do lions live?)
狮子住在草原。 Shī zi zhù zài cǎo yuán. (Lions live in the savanna.)
你住在哪儿？ Nǐ zhù zài nǎr? (Where do you live?)
我住在新加坡。 Wǒ zhù zài Xīn jiā pō. (I live in Singapore.)
I have made a set of cards on Quizlet (quizlet.com or download the app for phone or ipad) to help your child practice learning this topic.
Search for laoshilinda (all one word lower case) and then choose places to live.

You do not need to know any Mandarin yourself to use any of these resources.
Please let me know if you have any questions.
