What’s a Doodle Date?
DOODLE DATES are sessions where kids draw funny cartoons while learning new vocabulary in a relaxed bilingual (sometimes even multilingual!) environment!
The sessions are hosted by education professor and award-winning filmmaker Dr. WOO Yen Yen together with award-winning screenwriter and cartoonist of New York Times bestselling books Colin GOH and a guest Chinese teacher. We hold them several times a year, usually to celebrate a major festival or event.
Uncle Colin draws what the audience suggests—and everyone can draw along and learn accompanying words and phrases in both English and Chinese! It’s always a lot of fun, and we’ve even been told that entire families join in too.
All your kids need to have are pencils (or markers or colour pencils—whatever they like) and paper.
