"Fun Fun Elmo" is an Educational Program designed to teach children the basics of the Mandarin language. Episode 13 features the word of the day "Soup" and a segment from Shanghai. Sesame Workshop's developing Chinese Culture and Language series "Fun Fun Elmo" will not only cater to the vast populations of Chinese communities in the US, but will also encourage Chinese cultural appreciation and exchange, using locally developed content from China. "Fun Fun Elmo" introduces viewers to the Mandarin language through animation and live action films. Each episode introduces a Chinese tone, word, and stroke order for writing characters. Season 2 of Fun Fun Elmo will start airing during Chinese New Year 2013 on SinoVision Channels and Sinovision.net
