Must download for anyone serious about learning Chinese


Such a great app, has completely transformed my experience in learning the language. The site is constantly updated with new articles, and learning never feels stale and I can do it on the move!! Couldn't recommend it anymore to all language levels of Chinese, both those who are serious about getting a better grip of the language and the casual learner.

Best Chinese learning app

I have been studying with TCB every day for over a year and absolutely love it. There's far more content than I could ever work through and it's great to be able to study with across all my devices.

I use it every day!


Excellent app, have been using it since 2015. Perfect for studying every day and is well worth subscribing through the website.
