Happy (Belated) Lunar New Year!

Today’s language-learning inspiration comes from Mr. Mark Zuckerberg, who just wow-ed the world with another mesmerizing video of him speaking entirely in Chinese. This time, it’s a Lunar New Year greeting, of course.

Also fascinating: this deep dive over on Quartz on what exactly is this year’s Chinese Zodiac animal sign. Is it a sheep? Goat? Ram? Does it matter? Apparently, some people in China are laughing at Western media for getting hung up on this, which is pretty amusing in itself. Linguistic mischief!
