Great app, very easy to use, indepth reading and writing. But it's really only part of a language learning program. I would rate 5 stars but $10 per month is too expensive for something is more of a supplemental program than a complete language learning program. This cost is too high of a barrier to everyone I have tried to reccomend this to. It should be worth noting all the reveiws posted before Nov 2019 were from when this app was free. It now requires a subscription of $10 a month to use.

Thanks for your feedback! After the free trial expires you can still study a lesson and listen to a media item every 12 hours, which is enough for many users.
However, keeping Dong Chinese alive is not cheap and requires some support.
In any case, reach out to firstname.lastname@example.org if you would like to use Dong Chinese but cannot afford it.
This app is AMAZING! Beautifully programmed and easy to use, it incorporates reading, writing, listening, and speaking modalities along with cultural and historical resources. It is an absolute game-changer for working on characters. I literally cried when I saw what I could write after just a few weeks of practice. I have worked on multiple languages using all sorts of resources. I can say that this app is the most helpful I have ever encountered.

It's similar to ClozeMaster but includes a lot more features and it aggregates lots of Chinese audio/video content to supplement the vocab learning, which is totally unique. The dictionary is similar and sometimes better than the Outlier dictionary on Pleco. I wish the sentence audio was better than the standard TTS. I also wish I could turn of the AI Challenger sentences because they feel lower quality, especially for beginner levels. But totally worth it!

Thanks for the feedback! Improving the sentence quality is an ongoing process that I'm working on, and beginner levels will require a significant amount of manual review. In any case I'm glad you found Dong Chinese useful!
