Ratings and Reviews

interesting Chinese learning app

H. Alison

This app uses animals for kids to understand Chinese, which increased my kid’s interest. He played for a while to go through all the animals and tried to say the word at the same time. After a couple of tries, my kid can say the words and translate it to English to me. The app also includes some casual games. However one of the games contains only Chinese words, which is hard for non-Chinese speakers to know how to play. The other games are pretty fun for kids, even for adults. Overall, I’d recommend this educational app to parents for Chinese learning. I’m willing to try the paid version.
