Yes, it’s possible with funny comics!
Like you, we’ve had too many learning experiences that make us feel bad about ourselves with our second language—in our case, Chinese.
It’s gotten to the point that many of us start to believe we’re just “naturally bad” in Chinese or languages. But it doesn’t have to be that way!
Imagine your kids picking up a book in Chinese and enjoying reading it.
Yes, it’s possible—with DIM SUM WARRIORS!
