    I am a teacher and very thoughtful about the ways the human brain absorbs information. I teach in a predominantly Chinese area, so I am motivated to learn Chinese. My students think it is exciting and funny when I try to speak Chinese - they laugh, then help me with my accent and tones. I bought Rosetta Stone (very expensive) and I do use it, but this app is 1) much easier to get into, 2) more memorable with art than with photos, 3) more multimodal (switching from recognize, recall, listen, write, fill-in, English to Chinese, Chinese to English, etc.), 4) more grammatically oriented (ie this/that), 4) more organized topically, 5) less confusing (when using RS I have to stop and look things up on google translate or else stay confused) 6) more reading/writing (on this app I am starting to read the Chinese before the English), more time friendly (5-10 minute sections), and 8) more [sic] FREE!!! So great that I took the time to write a review! (I rarely do this) [[[ If you are a developer reading this review, please turn the large written Chinese characters into Flashcards for optional ongoing vocabulary development (I currently screenshot them, but think it would be a great addition to the app - and thank you!! ]]]

    I can believe how easy it is to learn with this app. I have downloaded others, and I like this the most. It teaches you words then teaches you how you use it in a sentence. You can easily review when you want. There's games and challenges to do, to make learning fun. It also lets you practice writing, you can skip the writing if you want as well. I recommend you follow their steps, but on paper to improve your writing. It also doesn't have ads. This is made so well, and efficient, that it makes me WANT to donate. Though I had a little trouble understanding the tones and stuff, so had to look else where, but after that this was the best. I love it, hope they will continue to expand in this. I'm already beginning to be able to read some. Just practicing and hour to two hours a day, and you'll be able to read simple stories within a month.

    This is by far the best Chinese learning app I have encountered. It creates building blocks, starting with simple sentence structures rather than making learners memorize canned phrases without understanding their components. Every word is translated/explained, and you can practice writing the characters. For each word it shows the Chinese character, pinyin transcription, and translation into English (and several other languages in the settings), as well as audio pronunciation (well enunciated, with option to slow down the audio). It also offers built-in flashcards, review exercises, and learning games - all that for free. Simply superb if you want to teach yourself Chinese. Highly recommended!!
