Watch: Penang Hokkien, with restaurateur Tee Phee

Tee Phee, owner of Wellington’s Little Penang restaurants, is a fluent speaker of Penang Hokkien and was always determined to ensure that her local-born children grew up speaking the language. Here she discusses her relationship with the language.

Subtitles in English, Hokkien (Min Nan Chinese), Chinese (Simplified), and Chinese (Traditional) are available for this video. Turn them on in the settings area (the cog icon) after pressing play.
