NLC 2017 Top Entry - Mandarin
Translation: (Mandarin) My name is Joliet, learning languages is important to me, because the more languages I know, the more friends I can have! I can learn about other cultures and that makes us closer to others in the world (in Swedish) I have friends in Sweden. Hi, how are you, have a good day! (Mandarin) You're my friend and you're my friend! The more languages I know, the more friends I can have! And that's amazing!
