Just what I needed!
I’m learning Mandarin using a variety of resources and I have found Chineasy Cards to be one of the most effective resources in my arsenal for actually understanding and retaining the information. Thanks and keep up the great work.
Whoa! I thought Chinese hard was to read but with app it helps me to read, review and remember. Great app !!!
The game is fun and you do learn some stuff, but I think it would be better for a little kid due to the fact that you can pass the levels simply with only taking in a few words. I’m in high school so this is kind of simple for my liking but I think if you had a toddler or little kid who you wanted to learn Chinese it would be a great captivating learning game
Great App. I wish there was a review section in which we could go through the old lessons and they are mixed up to see if we really learned them. Like Duolingo has a practice section.
This helps a lot
Kind of a bummer that you learn only 8 lessons before having to pay for premium. There are other Chinese apps that are just as easy to learn from. It’s a shame bc the graphics are clear and cute
Fun way to learn Chinese
Something different to learn new things so here good start and no stress out.
Learn Chinese the easy way!
I love this app, easy way to learn Chinese and makes me want to learn more about it. I highly recommend this app if you are looking to learn or use Chinese.
I’ve watched TED talks of this woman all day. Take notes and review them. Test your self as you go on later on older information. She has a YouTube channel under the same name. It’s so fun and simple. I kind of feel like a dumb American but I have to take baby steps I guess.
Hi, I want to thank the developer for creating this fun and easy-to-learn app for adult learners. I’ve always wanted the know the story behind these Chinese characters, and now it makes reading an exciting and pleasurable experience. I spent $19 for the one year subscription and I love it! I feel comfortable knowing I can always go back and review any of the lessons taught. Great job!
I would love to give you 5 stars if you could add some of the updates on this app: 1. Quiz on what you have learned in review tap section 2. Quiz on both traditional and simplified
Iiiiii like it!
This app is very creative and effective. I’ve been wanting to learn Chinese for a long time but nothing really grabbed my interest like this app has. Truly wonderful :)
Such an easy and enjoyable way to learn Chinese, by association.
As a learner of western languages, I find this app rich in knowledge and curiosity provoking. It goes about teaching Chinese in a way that makes sense for that language. This app makes the Chinese language not only accessible, but informative in a fun way.
Thank you so much. My love life depended on this app
I’m learning so much‼️
It’s much easier to learn Mandarin using this approach. I’m a bit worried about how to write these words because I know the strokes have to go in a certain order. Maybe there’s an option to see that and I’m missing out? Overall, great work!
Awesome little app.
This app is addictive and so well done. I usually never write reviews but this app deserves one. I use it everyday and pass ten levels per day, slowly but surely learning chinese characters. Love it.
This app is totally worth the download. I’ve never learned Chinese it’s really helpful and simple to use! Five stars 🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟
Súper fácil aprender chino con este programa
I’ve learned a ton using this app so far, but I would love a daily reminder app notification that tells me to do a level - with a busy schedule I often forget to keep working on my Chineasy cards.
Makes remembering characters easier. Reinforces your what you’ve learned by having you recall the word in different ways as well.
Really enjoy this! I especially like how the learning is set up like a building block style. And the pronunciation is available to click on to find out how to say the words properly. Thank you!!!
I actually discovered the books at the library a year ago and wanted to buy them so badly, but passed the opportunity by and wasn’t able to find the name of the books again! I was so excited to find they have an app! Very fun, and the explanation makes learning the words easier! My Mandarin teacher always said that learning Mandarin was so much easier because the joining of words made more sense, and they do! It just is hard to learn if it isn’t your first language, but I truly believe learning 中文 helps learning 日本語 and 한글!
When I play game you don’t have real Chinese like冰山or山水please report back to me immediately it is making me very sad when I am over summer break and not remembering my Chinese to go back to school thank you
Excelente app, muy recomendable...
I am 13 years old and I am learning mandarin and I love it! Chineasy has to be the most educational and fun way to learn Chinese characters! The illustrations really help you to visualize the meaning and it makes the characters seem more familiar than foreign! It’s incredibly addicting and I always look forward to using it! There were a couple of things I think could be better but overall it is a great app! First off, it switches between traditional and simplified and it’s very confusing to read something in Chinese and to only understand some because it’s either in simplified or traditional. Also I think the quizzes at the end of a level should be harder as I can easily pass through it without trouble but I can’t remember the characters an hour later. And finally there should be a review quiz that you can take when you want and it gives an overview of all the characters you’ve learned and it tells you what levels you need work in. Overall, this app is brilliant and the most fun way to learn Chinese! -Teague Rodriquez
NEGATIVES: -WHY THE SUBSCRIPTION? I understand the hard work behind the application (it's beautiful), but I can buy a 349 Chinese vocabulary flashcard set for under $20 on Amazon. I see it a bit greedy in my opinion, counting that you have a two "Chineasy" books (which I have purchased one of them(love it!)). Both of your "Chineasy" books are under $20 on Amazon. So why should I pay a yearly $20 subscription? Summary: I suggest the usage of ads. Making it free generates a larger number of users. The more users, the more ad revenue. -The quizzes in the "Learn" section are totally spoon-feto you. It is ridiculously easy. The quiz choices should at least only include characters,pinyin, and translations from previous lessons ONLY. I swear, I get the a questions for the character for "rain"(雨)and one of the multiple choice answers was "to celebrate the birth of a son" or something. I feel like all these language apps spoon feed you, so you can feel "smart" starting off, and that learning a language is a walk in the park, while in reality, it is not. Also, there is not a "Quiz" function in the Review section which I find disappointing, especially that I would be paying $20 out of pocket a year.
Just started using it, but I love the pictures! Great graphics. It introduces characters in a slightly different order than most beginning Chinese apps, so it makes a good second app to have to further supplement your vocabulary. However, I dislike that they don’t have two modes, one for simplified characters and one for traditional characters. It’s such a great app, but it makes me lose my focus to see both. I really hope they fix this.
There should be a reminder 4 using it so u can remember to use it because it is a great app. It’s very helpful especially since I have lived in China for a few years and may go back but I lost most of my Chinese tho i didn’t know much anyways. It is very easy to cheat so I haven’t learned anything yet but the app is fun. The way u can cheat is when u get to the questions you can just go back and look at the answers, also the creators should make an update where they should set a time for studying and then lock when someone gets to the questions so they can’t look back. Thank you for reading my review if its either a person getting the app or the creator if it’s the creator then I would love it if you could look into my ideas thank you, also, if you could add some more words thank you. You should get this game!!!!!!
Fun app. Makes it easy to learn. I’ll introduce my kids to it someday soon.
I would be nice if while reviewing words you could “star” ones you have particular difficulty with. Maybe there could be a little way to only look at the ones you’ve “starred”
The most important thing when starting out with a language is to get vocabulary at your arsenal. This does this very well. I would add grammar lessons maybe inside a different app or the same which would be nice.....
I find this app very useful as a person who can speak some Chinese but not read or write it, however, I have some suggestions. Maybe have a setting where you can choose whether the initial card is in the simplified or traditional word. I recently found out that the lessons switch between simplified and traditional, which can be confusing. I only found out that the default character was in traditional when I tapped the card and it said what the simplified character was. Some people may only want to learn simplified Chinese only and with the two writing styles mixed together in the lessons, it may become confusing later on. Maybe make a setting to choose to whether the user wants to see the simplified version or the traditional one? Another suggestion is to “favorite” certain words and lessons? As there are so many cards, it may become difficult to review problem words without sorting through all of the other words. Other than that, I think that this is an extremely beneficial app for learning new words in Chinese. If it wasn’t for the simplified/traditional Chinese issue, I would rate this app 5 stars.
Absolutely genius concept and gorgeous app execution! Had been anticipating Chineasy Cards’ release for many months. For someone like me, who is a strong visual learner, this app really helps to reinforce both simplified and traditional Chinese characters in a fun, artistic, and memorable way — and the etymology and cultural insights are a wonderful bonus to memorization. Conceptually, the app transforms a daunting and intimidating task into something that is very easy, enjoyable, and approachable. In fact, Chineasy Cards, combined with the daily podcast lessons, really makes for an outstanding learning experience with regards to pronunciation of the words learned and gaining a real appreciation for Chinese history and culture. Thank you for giving the world such an amazing gift! If I were to suggest some enhancements, then I would recommend giving the user the ability to scroll/swipe through all of the words learned in the Review section (like one does during the lesson) and increasing the overall text size of the etymology section, as the alternate characters are difficult to read. Also, as other reviewers have suggested, I’d love to see an enhanced quiz section to test us on all the words we’ve learned thus far. Being able to review and/or quiz ourselves by category (i.e. numbers, nature, animals, food, family, etc.) would also be greatly appreciated. Thanks again!
This app helped me remember each Chinese character in a fun way. I would recommend this to others for a great learning experience with Chineasy!
I was so excited and ready to learn and I got through the first 8 lessons. That was yesterday. Today I tried to go to lesson 9 but it said I had to pay $2 per month or like $20 a year. I was expecting a free app (like Duolingo) but now I’m sad and just want to learn.
I played 4 levels, the design is awful. If this was given to a smarter person, you don’t really need to learn anything to get the right answer. 1. The choices was wayyyyyyyy too different. 2. the two wrong answers was totally differwnt from the sets you’re learning. 3. the words it teaches are a bad flow. Bad
a review quiz would make the app worth 5 stars! i would like to mix all the cards i’ve learned together but haven’t seen a function like that yet :(
☝🏿me after using Chineasy 🤓
I have developed an all new fascination for Chinese culture. I want to learn everything I can from this app!
