This seems to be a really good way of learning Chinese. After a big download, it all works without internet. I've only been trying it for a week, but I'm really impressed with my progress. ADDITION March 2017 Apparently it does sometimes need connection to the internet and the app just refused to go onto the next lesson when this happened. It was okay again when I had an internet connection. The developer was very fast to respond to my question about this and I would recommend both the app and the developer as being outstandingly good.
Very glad I've found this app on the first spot. I've been very often wondering how Chinese works (the language, well maybe the people too ;-) and really, this app make it easy to learn. The writing is the most difficult I think. It's very well done by the way. I wish there would be a sort of library somewhere where we could only train writing. I didn't try the mini games yet so that could be there. The app is also very entertaining and gives motivation to learn more. Guys, you do a great job! Keep up the good work! Thank you :-)
As a returning student of Chinese after a few years hiatus, I can see this is a fantastic app for new speakers. The "Notes" feature is the best tool I've seen for learning colloquial Chinese and not sounding like a textbook. I also don't feel pressured to pay money. Great app!
Can't recommend this enough. Covers reading, writing, speaking and listening, w/ lots of review to reinforce the lesson. The leaping Confucius always makes me smile, bonus! :) Just wish and hope the developers would consider doing Intermediate (and even Advanced!) levels! Thank you for a fun and useful app.
This is the best app that I have found so far for learning Mandarin Chinese...and I have tried a lot of them! I really like the Tips and Notes pages that give you additional insights and perspective on the section you are studying. I also like the Train section to help study listening comprehension. I think there could/should be more of this in the app...as this is one of the hardest skills to acquire for myself. My only complaint is that I wish the font scaled up when you move up to larger screens. For example, It is really difficult to read the text/characters when studying on my tablet. Wish you could make the font bigger.
Definitely a helpful app for learning chinese. I've tried many chinese learning app and this app is the best. It has speaking exercises, characters exercises, minigames and even video courses. Lol 😁 . I have a question. i chose to learn traditional Chinese. But the character exercises that appear when learning lessons are always simplified characters. Why is this? I can learn the traditional characters from review page though, but sometimes it bugs me. ^^' Thank you!
