The Dim Sum Warriors CLUB
Read and draw bilingually (Chinese+English)
in a relaxed and friendly environment!
The Dim Sum Warriors Club is a creative way to help kids grow in motivation and confidence in both languages!
What You Get in the Dim Sum Warriors Club:
LIVESTREAM Bilingual Comic Jams
Learn new words in a creative and relaxed livestreamed environment!
3 x 45 mins every month (Sat 9.30 am, UTC+8) so your kids get inspired to draw and create alongside artists and teachers!
We read stories, explore key vocabulary, and do crazy mashups based on the kids’ suggestions—in both languages.
Unlimited Access to Bilingual Web Learning Resources
On our website, you get unlimited access to:
⭐ The latest and all the past Bilingual Comic Jam Videos
⭐ Mini-posters you can print and stick on your wall to review new vocabulary!
⭐ Quizzes to help you review new words learned during each Jam session.
⭐ Home study guides to support you in delving deeper into each story.
Two or more kids in the same family can participate in the livestream Jams together.
In fact, many families have got their brothers, sisters, cousins and even grandparents to attend the Jam sessions with them, so that they can all draw and learn fun words in Chinese and English together. It’s an unusual opportunity to bond—over language and silly cartoons!

With your Club membership, you get automatic FULL access to our award-winning mobile comic reader App, with bilingual comics (with language options you can toggle), audio read-alouds at natural speeds performed by actual actors, vocabulary-building games and cutting-edge reading evaluation tech!

A Relaxed, Friendly & Creative Environment
Kids have no reason to get stressed! They’ll be learning… even though they may not realise it. Research has shown over and over again that we learn better when we’re relaxed.
Our goal is to remove kids’ association of language learning with tests and being judged. If they associate it with joy and creativity, they’ll naturally use it more often.
Look at what parents, educators, experts and kids
are saying about Dim Sum Warriors!
“My 7-year-old daughter keeps re-reading the Little Dim Sum Warriors books. She thinks they’re really funny, and she laughs every time she reads them.”
“The students and staff at our school absolutely adore the Little Dim Sum Warriors books. They tick so many boxes for books that are in high demand by students and staff. They are funny, they are bilingual, and they are comic style picture books. Fantastic illustrations, brilliant text and a must have for all libraries!”
“Both my kids have been fans of the Dim Sum Warriors books for some time! This past Saturday, we spent a fun and creative morning at the online Jam drawing different emotions and learning the words for them. The kids were especially crazy over the final minutes when they could request whatever they wanted drawn. A very creative and meaningful way to spend the morning with the kids. I got to draw too!”
“The light-hearted performance by the Little Dim Sum Warriors had the audience entertained and educated at the same time.”
The Dim Sum Warriors App gives plenty of freedom for practice: It’s easy to toggle from one language to another, limitless possibilities to listen and re-listen to the stories / words, possibility to look into a keyword more closely, a chance to record and listen to your own reading, with good feedback from the solution about the pronunciation. The Dim Sum Warriors Curriculum has:
1. Extensive, detailed and yet easy to access materials for educators to ensure successful learning experiences for the students.
2. Visually appealing and easy to use digital application to support and diversify the learning process.
3. Learning through stories that happens naturally and supports a bi-lingual approach
“The app is user-friendly, inviting, and is rich with humor. Using multiple modalities, it serves as a pedagogical tool that provides readers of all ages the skillset they need to develop bilingual proficiency as well as biliteracy. It has a unique feature that promotes translanguaging and cultivates appreciation for visual arts.”
“Easy to use, suitable for kids my child’s age. Images are child-friendly, language is age-appropriate.”
“Both of us really have a very good bonding time together when we began with reading the Dim Sum Warrior books as bed time stories, playing the app together, occupying her with the ‘live’ drawalong session & then doing the quiz together… We have so many topics in common!
“Deliciously funny and clever!”
“It has great stories that you can toggle between languages to help kids learn them, and has activities to reinforce the words you see in the stories.”
“We live in Colorado and I’ve always made sure that my son stays in touch with the Chinese language that I grew up with. There aren’t a lot of casual and creative options for Chinese learning and so it was really fun for us to take part in the Dim Sum Warriors comic Jams! We can draw together and speak Chinese and English together in a stress-free experience. He is learning quite a bit, and he doesn’t even know it. “
