A unique iPad app that helps kids aged 6-10 improve and accelerate their Chinese literacy!

HanZi 800 is a carefully-designed educational app based on a story-centric pedagogy developed around approximately 800 Chinese characters that helps kids aged 6-10 improve their Chinese language literacy through animated stories, practices and quiz games.

Each of the 40 lessons in the app introduces around 20 core Chinese characters through a new story, and each story incorporates the characters that have been introduced in previous lessons. The result is a series of fun, engaging stories that increase in difficulty level as the user progresses through the programme and learns more characters, which are reinforced through practices and quiz games. There is also a built-in feature to track the progress of learning.

The lessons and content are presented using rich and vivid animation, illustrations, characters and music, and are intended to be fun, humorous and engaging such that learning naturally becomes a by-product.

Each of the 40 lessons contain:

A) Read-along story (around 20 core characters are introduced)
B) Practice
C) Animated story (introduction of some new characters that will come in later lessons)
D) Quiz game

The Quiz Game at the end of each lesson tests how well the user has learned the new characters introduced. Depending on how well the user performs, up to 5 stars are awarded, and a corresponding percentage score is shown. From the main page, the user can see the Total Score he or she has obtained to-date. This score is a cumulative average of all the scores for prior lessons completed.

By the end of 40 lessons, the Total Score gives a good indication of how much the user has learned and absorbed. After successfully completing the programme, a user who started with a basic level of Chinese literacy (preschool or Primary 1) can expect to achieve up to 80% general reading competency.

HanZi800 is a great way for kids (and even adults) to improve their Chinese and quickly gain confidence in the language, while enjoying interesting stories told through lively and colourful animation.
