Work experience

A Chinese superhero family use Mandarin vocabulary to explore the theme of work.

The evil Vixenna holds the family captive and threatens to remove their super powers. They think about what kind of career they could have as normal people, what work experience they have and what they like to do on holiday - while plotting to turn the tables.
