Chinese Audio Trainer by trainchinese
Open iTunes to buy and download apps.
Chinese Audio Trainer is a flexible Chinese audio course for iPhone and iPad.
Hear native Chinese audio recordings and clear spoken English for words from thousands of themed vocabulary lists including HSK, TOCFL, lists by situation, Chinese level, frequency of use and so much more. Learn business Chinese, travel Chinese, how to bargain, argue, make friends...
★ Contains 60,000 words spread across more than 1,000 lists.
★ You can throw away those old language courses on CD. In the Audio Trainer you can control the order and number of Chinese and English repetitions, and make words appear more or less frequently depending on how interested you are in them.
★ Practice hands-free. The Chinese Audio Trainer is integrated with the playback controls on your device so you can pause, resume and skip words from the lock screen or by double-pressing the home button.
★ Words are taken from the extensive trainchinese database - the same one used in our popular Dictionary and Flash cards app. That means well-organised and comprehensive coverage of modern spoken Mandarin Chinese.
★ You can also download word lists from your personal trainchinese account and receive words for audio training from the trainchinese Dictionary and Flash cards app.
★ Simplified or Traditional Chinese and Pinyin or Zhuyin (BoPoMoFo) romanisation is shown as each word plays.
What's New in Version 1.1
- Fixed bug where certain sounds wouldn't play
- Smarter delays between words
- Stop word list after the end of a round
- Both Simplified and Traditional Chinese supported, alongside both Pinyin and Zhuyin (BoPoMoFo) romanisation
- Support for Spanish and Russian audio
Keeps getting better
This (and Pleco) are the two apps essential for learning how to read and write Chinese characters ....maybe one day someone will create a grammar app! I bought a lifetime membership and have been using it for 2 years. I am a slow learner with a 50 year old brain and need to review constantly. I know about 1000 words now and hope to acquire another 1000 next year and the only way to do that is repetition!
Excellent though could use some work
Really love this app and the support team is very responsive with suggestions on improving translations. The multiple choice testing function is interesting but occasionally frustrating as the apparently randomly selected other choices are often so far afield as to make the correct choice obvious. Anyhow, love it in general and really hope the creators get enough out of it to reinvest in making it even better.
I like it.
The screen dims, after a few seconds. It does not un-dim, until it is touched. Please, add, a woman's voice for the English. Puhleeze. Edit: Please, add the option, to only play, the selected, flash-card, when pressing the play, button. And, please add, a larger, pause, between, the flash-cards, on the auto-play, feature, when the English voice, is set to, zero. Thank you.
