Mandawin takes the pain out of learning Chinese.

Learn 6000 words and characters at your own pace using smart study methods, and a neuroscience-backed review system that helps you remember words after seeing them a handful of times.

Learn piece by piece:
First learn the fundamental building blocks of Chinese characters, then learn how they slot together to make more complex characters.

Study in a smart order:
Learn the words in order of frequency and importance, so you can start reading real Chinese material as soon as possible.

Catchy mnemonics:
Each word has a story that uses your imaginative memory to link the character composition to its meaning and pronunciation.

Smart review timing:
No more cramming. We use a smart Spaced Repetition that prompts you to review words at just the right time for optimal memorisation. You'll remember most words forever after seeing them a handful of times.

Mandawin is your Chinese study companion for life. We'll take you from the basics, all the way to learning every word you need to understand a Chinese newspaper. All at your pace, in your spare time.

What’s New

Version 1.0.1

This update adds a single '=' sign to a single line of code, to fix a bug that caused reviews to freeze in some cases. This is known as an off-by-one error, a.k.a. "how to give yourself a heart attack on release day".

Fabulous app!

I’ve been studying Mandarin for a couple of years and Hanzi seemed impossible for me to learn. This app makes Hanzi understandable and fun. The pace of the repetition seems spot on and I am picking up the characters at a rapid pace. I actually look forward to the reviews and can’t wait to continue unlocking more characters. Great job on this app!
