Check out our video of yet another crazy Dim Sum Warriors Bilingual Doodle Date—where our artist Colin draws the wacky things kids suggest, while former professor Yen Yen and certified Taiwanese schoolteacher Teacher Hsiao help to translate them into Chinese.

We used the mash-up challenge: combine a food and a piece of clothing! FOOD + FASHION!

This led to some really weird combinations!

Look in the video for a “Chiku Wearing a Singlet” and a “Gummy Bear Wearing a Tutu”!

Note: Where there are differences between Simplified Chinese 简体字 (used in mainland China, Singapore and Malaysia) and Traditional Chinese 繁体子 (used in Taiwan and Hong Kong), you can see the Simplified version on the left/top and the Traditional version on the right/bottom.

The Dim Sum Warriors Bilingual Doodle Dates are FREE 20-minute draw-along and language-learning sessions held on our private Facebook Group, where kids will be immersed naturally in a bilingual (English+Chinese) creative environment. If you want to join this FREE session on Saturdays, sign up here: https://www.dimsumwarriors.com/introsession/ If you have questions, email us at baoman@dimsumwarriors.com

We get kids to learn languages creatively through comics!
