Panda to get personal Chinese language tutor 

275x250.jpgZoo bosses in Beijing are looking to recruit a Chinese language tutor -- for a panda which was born in America.

Three-year-old panda Mei Lan has lived at a zoo in Atlanta since she was born in 2006, but is due to return to China this week.

As such, keepers are worried that Mei Lan will not respond correctly to Chinese caretakers and are employing a language tutor to help her adapt.

A spokesperson for the Beijing panda research centre said Mei Lan will be taught basic phrases in the Sichuan dialect.

Examples include instructions to move in and out of her cave… once she has learnt those they will move on to teaching her how to eat bamboo with chopsticks.
