Essential, meticulous and cleverly conceived

This app is a gentle yet exacting digital teacher. It builds your understanding chunk by chunk, always with audio to accompany every character and every word of pinyin. The words are taught alone and then in meaningful, useable sentences. Each lesson provides an extra timed revision activity over 5 minutes that you can retake as often as you wish. The pinyin is there if you need it, but you can turn it off and work with the characters and audio alone. After only 2 months, I found that I could function without the pinyin and focus purely on the characters. This app deserves to be a leading player and a model for other designers in the digital education revolution. Thank you very much, developers!

Excellent app

I’ve been learning Chinese for many years off and on and the current version of this app is incredibly improved from much earlier days. My only criticism of this app is the speed at which some of the videos of humans speaking is so very fast that it’s totally unrealistic. I don’t think anyone speaks at this speed. But don’t let this put you off as these videos aren’t frequent and everything else is really excellent. Take the time to do the speaking and listen back to yourself. Really important and very fruitful in terms of improvement. Love the improved app so much that I’ve bought the lifetime membership. Good luck and enjoy.

Wow, words cannot simply express how I am feeling! I am a beginner at Chinese, I have come across some apps but none as good as this. Other apps taught me how to say and pronounce the words which is great and all but I never knew how to write or the characters, which this app does. I am even extremely happy and blessed that the app is 100% free including all of its contents. I look forward to learning more and even more motivated, thank you very much for creating this app, for those reading this review I highly recommend it.
