Susan is visiting her friend for Spring Festival. Let's see how a Chinese family celebrates this holiday.
Susan accidentally runs into her friend's family members in the street. Not knowing who they are, she is given the wrong directions and heads further away from the house.
There are two ways to say hello in Chinese: "ni hao," the informal way, and "nin hao," the manner that shows respect.
After receiving the wrong directions, Susan is now lost and needs to find her way to her friend's home.
