Perfect for any level of learner

I would say this app is really useful! I have been already to see improvements in my Mandarin in just 3 weeks. I would say that having separate quizzes/tests to be able to acquire the vocabulary words from passive to active memory would be a plus. Additionally, I believe that with the essential/advanced grammar cards there should be a chinese example sentence to really grasp the meaning of the grammar particle/word because an English explanation ,to me, cannot truly grasp how Chinese syntax works. But other than that, I love the design of the app; it makes me like to learn rather than the other apps with mediocre at best designs. Additionally, I like the idea to keep track with the words/characters/idioms that one knows because it gives me a rough estimate of my vocabulary goals. One major plus to this app is that it suits all levels of learners rather than just the beginner learners. A learner of any level is able to improve their vocabulary and is not stuck in this “beginner hole” that other apps do to people. Overall, this app is a breath of fresh air and would recommend any other learner to use it!

My new favorite app

I never write reviews, but I had to because this app is pretty much exactly what I’ve been looking for. It has such a beautifully minimal interface, and I love the word packs in here—they have HSK vocab, internet slang (I have been trying to find a way to learn Chinese slang for FOREVER and this app is perfect), even idioms (which I haven’t really seen in any other apps even though it’s such an important part of Chinese). It’s also super friendly for all levels, not just beginners, which is amazing to achieve for a language learning app.

However, I do have a very small suggestion: I think it’d be nice if there was an option for the flash cards to show the pinyin/English side first. (Maybe this is an option and I just couldn’t find it in settings?) I prefer it this way because I like to look at the pinyin first and try to write the Chinese characters in my head before I check with the character side of the flash cards.

Other than that minor issue, I am just so glad I found this app. It’s PERFECT for studying Chinese, so thank you to the developers!!

To the developers, please keep this app and its functions exactly as it is. Maybe some more word packs could be added, but I think even without adding any more it is great. I know some of the bad reviews complain that there needs to be example sentences and grammar notes and such, but I think those reviews come from very beginner, and maybe not even serious learners. Anyone who seriously studies should have enough grammar resources already and should be able to easily find usage examples for new words. This app is perfect for its intended use which is to just memorize new words. Adding all that other stuff will just make it another congested app and it will make it hard to focus on the original goal which is only to improve vocabulary. I love this app, it is by far the best vocabulary building app.
