Wa Si Teochew Kia – My First 120 Teochew Expressions: Kickstarter Campaign Update 6

Words cannot describe our joy! It has taken nearly four months for our small team to reach this point in this project. From conceptualisation to the research of Teochew words, initial illustrations and videos, preparation of Kickstarter campaign and rewards, to marketing… while still having to juggle with our day jobs.

此时此刻,我们的喜悦无法用言语形容!从项目策划,到词汇考究,再到绘图、图卡和视频制作,以及Kickstarter众筹页面和礼品的筹备,还有后期宣传……在要兼顾本职工作的情况下,我们这个小团队用了将近四个月的时间走到了今天这一步,实属不易。
