Have many, this is the best, BY FAR

I love, love, LOVE this app! It is engaging and fun. As a teacher, I appreciate being able to see the careful, thoughtful design of building and reviewing vocabulary and grammatical structures over time, across lessons. I think it has a brilliant balance of activities from putting words in the right order to finding the answer to a question to speaking and having that evaluated to listening to videos of people saying a sentence and then writing the sentence. That last one is my favorite because it’s so authentic. People speak at their normal speeds, in their normal styles, which might be mumbly, and you have to listen well plus think about what they probably would have said, i.e., the grammar, if you couldn’t really catch all of the words. I have added half an hour into my morning routine before work in order to do the app because it’s so fun!! Downsides: I am not impressed with the games, especially that they don’t seem to test me at my current learning level (rather WAY earlier). Also, the immersion lessons, while cool in theory, are too long for me. I think they should be 5 quick minutes only. Finally, DEVELOPERS, WHY DID YOU TAKE THE FLASHCARDS AWAY??? I REALLY miss them!!!!

You will soon see the flashcards back with a much cleaner inferface. Also thank you very much for your suggestions for the games and immersion lessons. We surely will improve it and take your suggestions into consideration.

Edited 2021 - false advertisement, no games in new version

HelloChinese is a fun, easy to follow program. You're given a variety of options to adjust the level of difficulty, as well as many supplemental learning tools such as flash cards, games, videos. It covers all the aspects of the Chinese language, including but not limited to proper pronunciation, reading both pinyin and traditional characters, as well as writing/typing pinyin and traditional characters. There is an achievement point system that allows you to access more content, and there is something satisfying about working my way down the curriculum path. I'd recommend this app to anyone wanting to learn to read, speak and write in Chinese. ETA (2021): I’ve returned to HelloChinese after a long hiatus and was glad to see there was a new, more comprehensive course available. However, they have done away with the games section for the new course and according to support there are no plans to reintroduce it. This is false advertisement considering that the Premium subscription claims that you have unlimited access to all training games. You can access the games still, but in order to play them you have to progress in the old course (which is redundant to and goes in a different order from the new course). That’s a huge limitation if you ask me, not to mention a huge inconvenience. The games were a big part of why I used to love this app, so my new rating and amended review is going to reflect that.

Thank you for sharing your thoughts. Here are our explaination:
1. We put lots of efforts in developing new main course contents such as teacher talks, speaking lessons, etc., as these are more effective to our users to learn Chinese.
2. We will consider adding games in the main course.

I first thought duolingo was the best app, but then it started challenging me and that just got too hard and I started to quit and I wouldn’t learn Chinese even though I live in the United States. I wanna talk to this girl. I wanna be friends with her so I started to get on Duolingo, I first thought it was a great app but now I think hello Chinese is way better since it teaches me to write it and it also teaches me to speak Duolingo just tells you to fill in the blank hello Chinese actually tells me to speak it. Write it communicate and also shows video but the really thing I like is that it tells you what to use in Chinese and what do not use in Chinese the words in Chinese that you need to use them the words that you don’t need to use Chinese. Hello Chinese is a upgraded version of Duolingo way better than Duolingo. I really like it features and I’m glad it doesn’t give you hearts so you can only do it for a limited time. No, you’re just literally putting pressure on us that’s not it hello Chinese actually goes back and does it again until you get a ride I really like how you should download it if you haven’t yet
