Ratings and Reviews
A gift to the world 🌎 ❤️
Absolutely genius concept and gorgeous app execution! Had been anticipating Chineasy Cards’ release for many months. For someone like me, who is a strong visual learner, this app really helps to reinforce both simplified and traditional Chinese characters in a fun, artistic, and memorable way — and the etymology and cultural insights are a wonderful bonus to memorization. Conceptually, the app transforms a daunting and intimidating task into something that is very easy, enjoyable, and approachable. In fact, Chineasy Cards, combined with the daily podcast lessons, really makes for an outstanding learning experience with regards to pronunciation of the words learned and gaining a real appreciation for Chinese history and culture. Thank you for giving the world such an amazing gift!
If I were to suggest some enhancements, then I would recommend giving the user the ability to scroll/swipe through all of the words learned in the Review section (like one does during the lesson) and increasing the overall text size of the etymology section, as the alternate characters are difficult to read. Also, as other reviewers have suggested, I’d love to see an enhanced quiz section to test us on all the words we’ve learned thus far. Being able to review and/or quiz ourselves by category (i.e. numbers, nature, animals, food, family, etc.) would also be greatly appreciated. Thanks again!

Thank you so much again for taking the time to write this wonderful review!
Honestly I think this is such a great way of learning, I’ve been trying this app for just a few days and my experience is so awesome. If you are looking an app to teach you in a fun way this is it. All the drawings are so helpful when it comes to learning.
This app makes sure that you understand what you are learning, if not you can repeat the lesson. Something that I relish about this app is that they teach you and then ask you questions. I feel like in some other apps they expect you to know what it is, yes yes they give pictures but still, they don’t take the time to explain what it is.
I also like how they dig deeper into the meaning of the word, talking about its past and stuff, I’m learning about ancient China in school and it is kind of fun knowing why they used this symbol and stuff like that.
I think this app should teach by units. Every 10 lessons do a review and teach you what you don’t understand, and if you’re good to go just move on into the next unit.
I highly recommend this app and should totally give it a try.

Thank you for your feedback regarding teaching by units. It's much appreciated, too.
Great and fun way to learn Mandarin!
I am 13 years old and I am learning mandarin and I love it! Chineasy has to be the most educational and fun way to learn Chinese characters! The illustrations really help you to visualize the meaning and it makes the characters seem more familiar than foreign! It’s incredibly addicting and I always look forward to using it! There were a couple of things I think could be better but overall it is a great app! First off, it switches between traditional and simplified and it’s very confusing to read something in Chinese and to only understand some because it’s either in simplified or traditional. Also I think the quizzes at the end of a level should be harder as I can easily pass through it without trouble but I can’t remember the characters an hour later. And finally there should be a review quiz that you can take when you want and it gives an overview of all the characters you’ve learned and it tells you what levels you need work in. Overall, this app is brilliant and the most fun way to learn Chinese!
