I am gob smacked at the content of this app. It is fantastically set out with step by step lessons that offer revision all along the way. If you use it everyday you will be conversing in no time. I’m learning pin yin as well as writing the characters. Hard to remember but the practice makes it easier and easier. I can refer to this at any time when sending messages to Chinese friends. It’s all FREE which is awesome because I’m a struggling unemployed person trying to make ends meet. If you can at all afford to donate I urge you to do so, so we can keep these things free. I will be donating as soon as I gain employment. It is worth every penny. I highly recommend anybody, who wants to learn this amazing language, to download this app and start your wonderful journey into this beautiful culture. Thanks again Chinese Skill.

Great app for learning Chinese.

I love the pictures associated with words and the amount of exercises. Each lesson is short and allows you to assimilate nice small chunk of useful information. In this app you learn by speaking, writing and listening. It’s free but i would pay for it if it was not.
