This companion app is available free of charge for learners in schools and universities who subscribe to Wo Hui Mandarin programmes.
“Wo Hui” is Mandarin for “I can”. Wo Hui Mandarin is a growing community of teachers and learners of Mandarin Chinese in schools and universities who are turning “I can’t” into “I can!”
The YCT and HSK courses that are available online and in this companion app are the only digital courses officially recognised by Chinese Test International – the organisation that develops, administers and scores the HSK and YCT exams.
Each YCT or HSK level is presented as a different mountain to climb. There are 2 pathways up each mountain: one that optimised for the spoken form, the other for written. Each step along the pathways focusses you on one new thing at a time.
1. Acquire a new Chinese character
2. Unlock extra words by combining it with other characters you know
3. Put the unlocked words into sentences
OPTIMISED FOR TEST TAKERS
By allowing you to focus on the spoken and written forms of Chinese separately, you experience a smoother transition from lower to higher YCT and HSK levels when the phonetic transcriptions (Pinyin) are no longer included.
YOU'RE IN CHARGE
Progress at your own pace. Set yourself daily goals and reminders, and keep track of your progress. Our snowballing approach means that your vocabulary grows exponentially rather than linearly. As you continually recycle what you have learned, you not only does your knowledge grow but so does your confidence in using what you know.
We would love to hear how you get on. You can get in touch with us by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org
