Customer Reviews

I love it!

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 a Chinese.

Pretty good; for the casual learner

I'm learning Chinese more as a culture kind of thing, whereas I have no real obligation to learn in a professional environment (and to be honest I don't have a casual environment either: my Chinese friends all speak Cantonese, not Mandarin). Alas, this is a great app for people who just kinda want to find out Chinese, to "get your Peter wet" if you will. An intense friend of mine is using Skritter to really nail those pesky characters, but this is working just fine for me. Within a week I can introduce myself, explain I'm American, find an English speaker and get me the hell out of China if I end up there by accident somehow.

Great App to Learn FREE Mandarin!

This is one of the best apps you can download if you're looking to learn Chinese!
I have been studying Mandarin in school for a few years, and this app is great to further your learning/build on new skills! I really like the speaking feature, which is really really important for learning any language! ♡ definitely worth the download!
