Help pre-schoolers get a start with foreign languages by learning words in French, Spanish and Mandarin. Nothing boring about these lessons though, for the show stars a bug called Lingo who can burst out into the real world, too. This started out on the channel’s website and now makes its TV debut, with a week of episodes featuring a Mandarin bug who chooses everyday objects to include in a grand finale.

About this programme

Chinese bug Wei wants to put on a bug-tastic chopping act for the Big Bug Show, so Lingo sends him off find what he needs. But what will Wei find to chop? And what Mandarin words will he use along the way?
