About the Hosts

Dr Yen Yen Woo and Colin Goh are the creators of Dim Sum Warriors 点心侠®, a unique patent-pending approach to language-learning for kids that blends comics, translanguaging, tech and adorable dumplings! Their method has been independently certified for pedagogical quality by Education Alliance Finland, one of the world’s leading edtech impact verification agencies.

They also created a Dim Sum Warriors graphic novel series about kung fu-fighting dumplings (now published by Scholastic Asia) which they adapted for a stage musical with music by Pulitzer Prize-winning composer Du Yun. It premiered in Shanghai before touring 25 major cities in China in 2018. Together, they are also filmmakers whose last feature film, Singapore Dreaming (2006) won major international prizes including the Montblanc Screenwriters Award at the San Sebastian International Film Festival and the Best Asian Film Award at the Tokyo International Film Festival.

Yen Yen obtained her doctorate from Columbia University‘s Teachers College, and has worked as a professor at Long Island University in New York and National Central University in Taiwan, specializing in curriculum development as well as multimedia production.

Colin graduated from Columbia University Law School and is a qualified attorney with qualifications in New York, Singapore and England. He is also a professional cartoonist whose work includes the New York Times bestsellers Search Inside Yourself and Joy On Demand.
