HelloChinese is simplistic review. Enjoy the very gradual blending of words. The extra lessons are also helpful for immersion. I wish there was more review and elaboration of the tones, because they are not always clear from 1 recording alone. For instance, Skritter uses multiple recordings and explanations. Although not primarily a writing app, more kanxi practice would be helpful.

Thank you for your suggestion! We have a whole pinyin course for you to train your sense of Chinese tones. If you click on the "main course" you will see a list of our courses. Click on "Pronunciation" to train. You can always practice hanzi of your choice at "already learned" in "practice" tab.

Much, much better than the Duolingo course and almost perfect when paired with Anki flashcards. Voices are great at making the tones sound clear and aren't robotic. There's variation as well so people talking slow or talking normally which I really like. There's writing practice, listening, reading, and speaking. Would love the option to turn off the ping ying to just read the characters. Wish traditional characters were offered.

Thank you for your comment! We do have a switch that you can switch between Pinyin only, Character only or displaying both in settings, or even in the top right corner menu button of a regular course. There is an option to switch between traditional and simplified, go to settings at top right corner of "Me" tab and try it out!

I'm so glad I stumbled upon this wonderful high quality and helpful app. So far it's proving superior to Duolingo. I use both now. Thank you. It's really fun. I love the cultural insights, role play conversations and authentic native speakers. Such a great tool. Easy to navigate and there's no tedious and annoying ads. Keep up the fantastic work with this great resource.
