Bilingual Comic Jam!

The Dim Sum Warriors Bilingual Comic Jams are 45-minute live streaming sessions on Facebook where creators, artists, and language teachers draw and chat along with kids and their families! These sessions are modelled after the practice of drawing and chatting that Dim Sum Warriors creators enjoy with their daughter. Kids will be able to hear and see key words in English and Mandarin used in a naturalistic and fun environment. Highly recommended for the whole family to participate!

These sessions are casual, humorous, fun, and are geared towards increasing children’s interest in languages and reducing their fear, and most important, it helps them become creators!

Sessions will be conducted in BOTH English and Mandarin.

Each session begins with a story reading (mostly, but not always from a Little Dim Sum Warriors book) so that kids can practice reading along as well.

The reading is followed by a highly interactive draw-along with our artist. Each session will have a different focus, from “Food with Feelings”, to “Cool Tools” and “Mad Mashup”. Kids can also see their ideas come to life as our artist opens up the session for suggestions for new characters or scenarios!

Kids can see the key words highlighted in each session and can test their learning through a bilingual quiz posted in the Club section of our website.

Once a quarter, we celebrate our members’ hard work during our Creation Celebration—by exhibiting selections from members’ works online.

Food with Feelings

Kids get to let their imagination run wild as they think about, draw, and suggest different food charaters with feelings loosely based on the alphabet for the week. For example F might have Funny Fries and G might inspire Graceful Garlic. Kids will learn the adjectives and descriptions of feelings in English and Mandarin and also topics that the conversation will naturally extend to, e.g., how to talk about different ways of cooking garlic, different people’s reactions to garlic, etc. Key words used during the session will be spoken about bilingually and recapped in our post-session quiz.

Cool Tools

Kids get to understand and try different tools for creating comics. They will learn about the different parts of a comic and other aspects of comics-making such as drawing objects closer and further way, panels and sound effects. For example, they will get to figure out—together with our artist—how to represent different sounds in comics, such as falling down, car crashing, hand-clapping, etc. Kids will learn how to write and make these sounds, and also how these are expressed differently in English and Mandarin. Key words used during the session will be spoken about bilingually and recapped in our post-session quiz.

Mad Mashup

Kids activate their imagination by mashing up popular culture and styles that they enjoy, e.g. in one week we might explore the Japanese ‘chibi’ (a slang term meaning cute, short and chubby) style of drawing, or maybe ‘Nightmare Before Christmas’ director Tim Burton’s amusingly spooky style, and draw characters such as Spider-Man or Hello Kitty using those styles. Throughout this process, kids get to fire up their imagination and pay attention to what makes an image, a character or a style recognizable. They will also learn loads of interesting vocabulary by talking about their characters and creations in English and Mandarin. Key words used during the session will be spoken about bilingually and recapped in our post-session quiz.

All videos and quizzes will be archived in the Dim Sum Warriors Club page so that Members may access them anytime and never have to miss out on a session.

Please provide a comfortable space, as well as paper and art supplies for your kids to draw along during the sessions.

Why Drawing Is Useful in Learning Languages

Research in literacy development has found that drawing has many benefits for reading and writing, and for overall development. Drawing allows our children to do what we do with writing. It’s a natural mode for them to remember, express, record what they see around them, organize their thoughts, to imagine, and even to make an argument. It provides for the practice of focus and paying attention to detail, orientations which are very important for their academic and professional lives. It allows children to take risks, express their imagination, and find their own voice. All these are skills that are highly necessary in the 21st century! Yet we often don’t allocate time or space for this important and useful practice. The Dim Sum Warriors Bilingual Comic Jams meet this need through casual, fun, and very creative streaming sessions!

To experience the full benefits of language learning with the Dim Sum Warriors:

• Read the Little Dim Sum Warriors bilingual print books

• Practice with our Dim Sum Warriors Bilingual Comic Reader App

• Participate in the Dim Sum Warriors Bilingual Comic Jams!
