Music on/off, various bug fixes and enhancements
Addictive and instructive
I have two daughters who started using this app at preschool age. I looked at several different Mandarin learning apps for kids, and this one, with the relatively simple games, repeated themes allowing for consolidation of learning, and incentives with virtual stickers has my girls totally sucked in. I'd say it's definitely worth the extra money for the premium -- they have picked up the vocabulary for the modules bit by bit, and the more modules, the more they can learn. Hoping there will be additional modules some time soon!
Nice but too much English!
This is supposed to teach Mandarin. Unfortunately, all the instructions are in English. Worse still, the words of "encouragement" are in English. Why? It's teaching more English than Mandarin. A few basic changes into Mandarin would make for a far better product.
What a wonderful way to learn mandarin for the whole family!
