Fun experience

Overall a really fun experience learning how to write Chinese characters. I especially appreciate the dot guide that teaches me proper stroke order with each character. The educational videos associated with each deck is awesome!! Thank you for making the learning process for such a hard language actually fun.

Useful and fun!

Great app for learning to write Chinese in an innovative and easy to use way. Much better content and organization than a lot of other language learning apps out there! Great for beginners and those with more experience but looking for practice 👍

Beautiful design!

This app is beautiful, intuitive, and easy for a beginner (both to learning how to write Chinese characters and app-based learning) to use. Looking forward to incorporating it into my daily practice!
