Omg, I love this app....the fact that it is patterned after Duolingo and teaches how to write Chinese and pronounce it which is no easy task , to a total Chinese greenhorn like me, makes it my second best app after...you guessed it, Duolingo. I love languages, learning Spanish and Chinese have been on my bucket list for many many years now, and this two apps make that possible. Thanks guys. *tears :-P*
Back when I was in high school I used to study Mandarin in 2 years and it wasn't easy. But I did learn basic in this language but after I went to college ofcourse I wouldn't have it in my subjects but then I became determined to study a language because you'll never know when it'll be useful, and I am really glad and thankful of this app because it offers the lessons for learning this language for free.
Comprehensive and easy to learn Chinese with this app. There are words I didn't know before. Thanks anyway... However, I found a bug. When I played "Challenge" pinyin game; fill blank with correct pinyin in phrase 百分之五十(fifty percent) and correct, the game is lag and crashed... This bug can be found when I'm level 24. Hope you can fix this bug... Thank you...
Nice app but bearing in mind how difficult this language is and how different it is from learning say German or Spanish the lessons should be shorter eg. 10 cards instead of 20. It would be much more motivating if you could see smaller achivements but faster. At the moment if I manage to do 15 cards of the lesson, get tired, close it, next time I have go all over almost the whole long lesson to get to the new stuff.
Had to supplement with some background info on pinyin, pronunciations and legitimate grammar rules and exclusions since it's all game/exercise-based, but I like it so far! It's a good companion to ChineseSkill as well!
Great application... You learn the basic thoroughly,and each section/theme you have test (game) of speaking, oooh how hard to get score when you cant say 男人 perfectly..... And there is also review about what you have learnt.
