About this app

Laoshi is designed for learning Chinese words and characters to help you save time and learn more effectively.

Select and study ready-made word lists for all the HSK levels, as well as word lists from popular apps and Chinese textbooks. We also have word lists divided into topics created by teachers from all over the world.

In Laoshi, you can easily create your own word lists and share them with friends.
Use the app as a dictionary while you study. Learn words at your own pace.

Share word lists directly or make them public for the whole Community.

Learn words with flashcards: memorize the tones, meaning, pronunciation and handwriting of Chinese characters. Most words have examples to help you understand in which context to use them.

Write characters right on the phone, forget about paper.

Use spaced repetition to memorize words for a long time. Laoshi will send you a notification to remind you it's time to revise and suggest the right training.

Choose which HSK level you want to achieve or how many words you want to learn daily.
Motivate yourself and share your progress with friends.

We’ll import word lists from Quizlet, Pleco and other apps into your Laoshi account for free. Send the words to app@laoshi.io in any format.

Try learning 10 words in Laoshi. We bet you’ll enjoy it!

The app always proceeds to "update database" and this process takes forever or even breaks entirely. If there was an option to at least turn off automatic database update, I'd give this app five stars because it's the best one in the market for learning chinese words. upd. The issue was fixed. Thank you, developers!

Kirill, update to the latest version, please. We've fixed these issues. Database update is still required, but it will appear once a day and will take seconds.

This is amazing. This app makes flashcards for writing/listening/learning the words you've seen in the textbook/apps you're using to learn Chinese. I personally find it very helpful. Simple suggestion: please add a way to mark words that we get right (especially in writing sessions) but we feel there's still room for practice. Thanks for your efforts.

Im so utterly disappointed: On my old phone I had the original laoshi app installed.. What I loved most about it was that it was simple uncomplicated & would break down each word for me into into its radicals. Now, it is this horribly complicated site with some mess about lists & when I look up the word, it just only tells me the basic definition -- and no longer provides the breakdown of the radicals inside the characters and word. I miss the old version. Can I please please have that old one!!

Hi Krin. I think you mixed Laoshi with some other app you call 'the original laoshi app'. Could you please specify what was its name and send us app's icon to app@laoshi.io? Laoshi is not a dictionary at all. It is about memorizing Mandarin words and characters. I do understand that you are disappointed, but it seems not to be our falt, sorry.
