Amidst the pandemic, if there’s one thing that we have all been doing is checking off things off our bucket list because suddenly we have all the time in the world to accomplish big and small goals that we never thought we’d actually get around to completing. And, learning a new language is probably one of the most common wishes that most of us have. Well, if this is the case with you, we are here to tell you that you can learn new languages for free if you are based in Singapore and/or Malaysia!
Singapore-based edutainment company Yumcha Studios is offering Singaporeans and Malaysians 6 months’ free access to their highly-regarded Dim Sum Warriors bilingual app, which is originally priced at $9/month. Yumcha Studios CEO Dr Woo Yen Yen says that they made the decision when the new Covid restrictions were imposed on Singapore and Malaysia.
While the app is primarily for kids, users of all ages can leverage this promotion and learn a new language for free while staying at home amidst movement restrictions.
A Keen Focus On Kids
This campaign is especially useful if you have kids at home who are bored out of their heads because of schools and enrichment centres being on and off for the past two years now!
“We know how hard it is to keep kids occupied and positive when they’re stuck at home all the time. So we thought that for this difficult period, we’d make 6 months of our app free because kids really need high-quality content that educates as well as entertains.” As many would say in Singapore and Malaysia, Yumcha Studios CEO Dr Woo Yen Yen adds, “Boh pian doesn’t have to mean sian,” i.e., having no choice doesn’t necessarily mean having to be bored.
With the Dim Sum Warriors App, kids can improve both Chinese and English through hilarious stories, adorable characters, games and reading evaluation tech that provides motivation and feedback on fluency and pronunciation.
“Kids will be learning a lot,” says creator Dr Woo, a former tenured professor in the field of education who’s also an award-winning filmmaker. “But it won’t feel like drudgery. Because learning is better when you’re laughing.”
The App Offers Audio Books, Games and More!
The Dim Sum Warriors app is not only a great place to learn new languages but it is also a reliable choice to keep kids engaged during HBL. Independently certified for high pedagogical quality by Education Alliance Finland, Dim Sum Warriors is one of the world’s top edtech impact verification agencies.
Furthermore, it comes with a wide range of features that allow users to read humorous bilingual comics and toggle between the languages
