WaiChinese is a Chinese intonation visualizer, designed to help students speak better Chinese. Record your spoken Chinese and see the shape of your spoken tone in real-time.

Replay your recording and compare with a native speaker. Then submit your recordings to a teacher for human evaluation of your tones and pronunciation. Receive corrections and learn Chinese speaking fast.

Students can submit lessons to their own teacher or have the submissions evaluated by one of WaiChinese's expert teachers. WaiChinese teachers will respond with a grade and comment within 24 hours of submission.

Fantastic Program

Wai Chinese is an excellent way to improve your pronunciation skills. The continuous feedback from a native speaker is exactly what I need. Wai Chinese fills that crucial gap that other programs can't fill.

Ui fail

I downloaded this app very excited to try it. When I open, on my iPad running iOS 9, it prompts me to sign in but no where can I sign up!

Next I google the name of the app and sign up on the website, but signing in on the app will not work.

Major Ui fail. If this is fixed please reach out to me and I will try again.
