*** One of the best educational apps of the year - Apple (iTunes Rewind) ***
Now you can learn Mandarin Chinese just by playing games on the go. With 8 addictive games designed for essential vocabulary & conversation skills, our Mandarin app is perfect for students and travelers of all ages who want to learn, speak and read Mandarin the easy way.

Instead of snooze-worthy flashcards, our apps are packed with rich games that teach important aspects of Mandarin such as the Pinyin and character writing systems. And with our new game, Galactic, you’ll master the ever-important usage of tones within the Mandarin dialect. Plus, lessons like “Yes or no questions,” and “Chinese foods” will have you conversing like a local in no time.

“Learn Chinese (Mandarin)” includes one free level and if that’s not enough, upgrade to get a whopping 50 additional levels and 40+ hours of content. With so many bite-sized portions of knowledge, MindSnacks is like the dim sum of language learning. Mmmmmmm...dim sum.

“I’ve been waiting for a fun app that teaches Chinese and this one is awesome! It teaches characters and pinyin, so it’s great for beginners. They even have a game that teaches tones!”

“The Mindsnacks Apps are colourful, fun and perfect for learning. The games are heart-racing and enjoyable. My favourite game for the Chinese app was 'Galactic' because it really helped me with pronunciation.”


At MindSnacks we like to keep it fun, but we’re serious about learning. That’s why our Mandarin app includes 8 challenging games designed by Ivy League professors. Each game teaches a specific skill for speaking Mandarin and helps create a well-rounded learning experience for both kids and adults that goes well beyond basic flashcards.

Of course studying is only worth it if it works, so our unique algorithm reinforces the learning process using proven methods from the field of memory studies. Over time, the games adapt to your individual performance, selectively repeating Chinese words, phrases and grammatical points with which you’ve previously struggled. In other words, as you learn Mandarin, the app learns about you for a more effective learning experience.

Perfect for beginning and intermediate learners of Mandarin, MindSnacks is like your own personal Chinese teacher you can take just about anywhere. You’ll quickly become less reliant on that Chinese dictionary and learn the grammar and vocab you need for traveling in China.

Customer Reviews

Wish I could afford the full version!

What I played was great. Well polished, clean feeling app. Fun and addictive with lots of nice visuals and sounds. Enjoyed learning with it. Unfortunately, I can't afford the full expansion.

I like it

I really do like this app a lot. The games are fun, the words and phrases give are very useful, and I feel like I'm learning a lot. However, I think I few simple things would really improve it:
The ability to select individual words from multiple lessons to create a personal list of words you'd like to review
An option for traditional Chinese characters
Better pronunciation- some of the words are pronounced incorrectly

Other than that, it's a great app

Simple, fun, and effective

This app is VERY organized and lets you learn by playing games. I liked it so much that I got the full version, and I'm really satisfied.
