Ratings and Reviews
A great app!
Beautifully illustrated and lovely stories. My little one finds the character interaction different to his usual books and doesn't even realise it's my way of teaching him Cantonese. He loves it. Can't wait for more stories.
Great idea, looking good but can be improved.
There are not many apps that teaches Cantonese to young children so I was thrilled to come across this.
Having tried it out, it found if the following can be implemented, it could make it better.
1. The spoken Cantonese is talking way too fast!
2. As the words are being spoken, it would be useful if they could be highlighted (a bit like karaoke!)
3. Have a 'previous' and 'next' page. It took ages for us to get back to the page we were up to from the night before as we had to start all over again!
4. When pressing on the floating word, it says the word in Cantonese, it would be useful to also know what it is in English.
That's it for now. Keep up the great work!! I'd be happy to purchase this app when it is available! Thank you for creating it!!
Developer Response ,
Hi Scrab19, Thanks so much for trying our app and for your useful feedback! We are developing a new version (1.2) that will incorporate your points (1) slowed down audio for all of the stories and (2) a back button that allows you to go back to the previous page.
Regarding English translation, the translate button on the top left corner will translate the floating word in English.
We like the audio of Karoke style stories. Will consider this for future version! Thanks again for your support and please stay tuned for version 2!
We're going on holiday to China soon, so we thought our daughter could learn a few Chinese words. And it's her favourite app now!
