My Favourite Day - Chinese New Year


Chinese New Year is celebrated in many countries around the world. Each new year is named after one of twelve animals. 2013 was the year of the snake, 2014 the year of the horse and 2015 is the year of the sheep.

Listen to a girl telling us about why she likes Chinese New Year, and what she does at this time.
