@PandaCubStories is bilingual webcomic to boost your 中文mastery & Chinese 水平!
WHO’S THIS FOR?
This comic is for you if you’ve ever had any-or-all of the following thoughts:
“I want to learn/improve my Chinese... BUT AIN’T NOBODY GOT TIME FOR THAT!”
“Chinese school is/was SO BORING...when am I EVER GOING TO USE THIS anyway?”
“…ok… MAYBE I should have paid more attention during Chinese school – now that I’m trying to raise bilingual kids/Not sound stupid in front of my relatives.
“My girlfriend/boyfriend/S.O. is Chinese… I want to learn more about her/his/their culture (and also make a good impression on the family),
HOW IT WORKS:
Every MONDAY, WEDNESDAY, and FRIDAY, an EXPERTLY CRAFTED comic strip shall be delivered unto your Instagram feed (assuming you’ve followed us!*). This TOTALLY PROFESSIONAL comic shall take you by the hand, a fuzzy comrade on your 左-side, and a prickly companion on your 右… and lead you into a narrative sprinkled with 中文 phrases & idioms. AND because you’re smart and savvy, you’ll already be able to 意会what that Chinese phrase is… based on context clues! (Also, we’ll provide a full glossary in the captions, + a voice over video to aid in pronunciation).
*Subscribers to the Panda Tribe Newsletter will also receive a curated digest of bilingual comics + bonus practice materials!
WHO’S MAKING THIS?
The pudgiest of Panda Cubs and a grumpy-cute Hedgie! Also, the Writer/Artist of this series is “L”*
*Who, incidentally, is currently sinking under the weight of imposter syndrome. Who’s advice was it to “fake-it-till-you-make-it? Okay. One day, this comic WILL be expertly crafted and professional… 一步一步来。
