Description

This innovative Chinese Flashcards app from Clavis Sinica uses a unique multiple-choice format and wide-ranging usage examples to help you master Chinese characters and radicals. The app includes 19 built-in flashcard sets for a total of over 2,130 vocabulary items.

The Class I character set contains the 300 most commonly used characters in modern Chinese, the Class II set contains the next 500 most frequently used characters, while the Class III set contains the next 782. The Radicals set includes all 189 character radicals.

You can view common usage examples for any character or radical to help you learn and remember unfamiliar items. For any character, you can view a list of common compound words in which it is used. For any radical, you can view a list of common characters that it forms. Both types of usage list include characters, pinyin, and English definitions.

In addition, fifteen theme-based sets each include 25 commonly used words relating to everyday categories such as academic subjects, animals, beverages, body parts, business terms, colors, countries, food, weather, and so on.

Characters can be displayed in either simplified or traditional form. The cards in the character and radical sets are arranged in order of increasing complexity, making it easy to work your way up from simpler to harder. Cards you get wrong are automatically reinserted into your current deck. A final score is displayed as a percentage at the end of each session.

When you answer an item incorrectly on any test, it is added to a personal Review List, so you can go back and work on less familiar characters separately at any time. Review List flashcard sessions incorporate a spaced repetition algorithm, so that you'll encounter more frequently the items that you've missed most often in the past. Items are removed from the Review List only after you've answered them correctly several times in a row in different review sessions.

Customer Reviews

A must have for students of Chinese language

I wish I had known about this app, as well as the desktop Chinese reading software also put out by Clavis Sinica. With this app you will have the tool you need to get the first 1600 character meanings and pronunciation under your belt. Learning the meanings of individual characters is a great help in acquiring new vocabulary later on. This company is a real class act. Highly recommend this app.

Best flash card app

Clavis Sinica has the best language learning software available and their flash card app is a worthy part of their lineup. The test function allows you to see related words and is an excellent way to build vocabulary as well as improve understanding of the language. Highly recommended.

I really appreciate this app

It's well designed and with very helpful features. I practice Chinese medicine and it has been invaluable in helping build my basic Chinese vocabulary.
