Some ways it's great (lots of articles) but it needs work. It's buggy, there's a button that looks like it's to speak a word (the ear) that does nothing and it'd be super helpful. Sometimes lessons hang and don't load until you quit and close the app and reload it. And the definitions are frequently bad. Like "towards" is defined as "a Chinese surname" or the English definition of a word is... The word in Chinese. Be nice if you could modify the dictionary.

Hi Bing, thank you for your feedback. You need to enable within your device for the dictionary audio. Regarding definitions, where there are multiple for a word these can be cycled through in the dictionary using the arrows. If you are able to drop us an email to contact@thechairmansbao.com we'll look into the lesson hang issue. Thanks - Team TCB.

It's helpful, but starting to notice some consistent problems with the Android app, some of which do not exist on the desktop version. For some words like 也,能,里,it keeps defining them as "surnames" only, when these characters have multiple meanings and the full definitions only show up on the desktop version. I also think it would be very helpful if the reading comprehension tests had the option to have pinyin displayed, it's very hard for a beginner without it. It could be turned off/on

Hi Matt, thank you for your feedback. You need to use the arrows to cycle through the different definitions in the dictionary. 能, for example, has two grouped definitions: 1. Surname, 2. To be able to... Thank you for the suggestion of Pinyin throughout the exercises and we will bear this in mind. Team TCB.

TCB is an excellent tool for self-study. The articles do not require too much time to read. I like to toggle between Simplified and Traditional characters to see the differences quickly. The live dictionary and keyword, grammar, and proper noun guides are very helpful. My favorite feature is the comprehension tests. It didn't take me long to decide to become a Premium subscriber.
