The new update looks great. This app is very good and there is so much content you get for free.
Not enough stars to say how this and the people that make this app are ....
Forget ALL the others...you only need this one!
I’ve used this app for a while now and it’s truly amazing. I actually think this is THE BEST Chinese learning app.
For a beginner in Chinese you’ll find the structure is logical and simple. There are various exercises and it’s all in short snaps so you could truly do just a little each day, or a lot, as you wish. There’s even more immersive stuff I can see is available if you pay for premium but there is A LOT available for free. Thank you!
It seems like the review piles up pretty thick and fast though and I find it really repetitive sometimes, as if it doesn’t learn which ones I always get right every day. I’m not sure if the app is supposed to recognise this or not though?
I also believe I have a bug on my phone with this app. When reminders were turned on, I’d get two push notifications at the same time every day. I turned notifications off and now I get one every day. I don’t know how to turn it off completely?
Really helpful, I love it! The best app I’ve found online.
This is a great app to learn Chinese, better than any other app I could find, because of the videos, better explanations and character training.
A really well made app that has got all the better after the recent update, have been using it to supplement my Chinese lessons for a year and it’s worked perfectly alongside. Would highly recommend.
This is amazing!!! It’s great for beginners or advanced speakers. Not only does it teach you Chinese language (and it does that brilliantly!) but it also teaches you the culture!!! This is the best Chinese learning app ever and I would recommend it to everyone kids and adults
An excellent way to learn Chinese through a fun and rewarding system. For me - better than Duolingo.
Great app keeps learning fun and free and there is variety from games to lessons- love it!
It is an excellent app which helps me a lot with my Chinese learning. The lessons are structured in a logical way and easy to understand. Now I can talk to my boyfriend who is Chinese and I am super happy about that. I wanna rate more than 5 stars. Love this app.
Would be 5* but I have only completed the pinyin pronunciation and basic I exercises.
Starting with the Pinyin and tones is exceptionally helpful. There are detailed descriptions and analogues of all of the final and initial sounds.
The voice capture is spot on and will accurately pick up where your mistakes are. You can even narrow in on the tricky words you’re having trouble with and the system will mark you out of 5.
I have been travelling in mainland China and this app has helped so much.
With previous apps they haven’t been as helpful and drilling as others.
I have found that the speaking back and recording of your sentences, such a big help! Showing you were you are going wrong in the tones of the words.
Definitely by far the best teaching Chinese app yet!
I’ve already learnt so much and used this app for only a week I recommend highly for all ages easy to use.
It's a really good app if you are a beginner , you learn words & sentences right away , I have downloaded lots of other Chinese apps but this is the best so far so I would highly recommend Hello Chinese !!!
Absolutely brilliant app! What I love most about it is the fact that you also learn stroke order. There’s also so much diversity in the exercises. Really recommend this app, and it works really well with duolingo too.
Simply the best app for learning mandarin as a beginner. Far superior to Duolingo!
Living in China I used this for the first year and a half as my only source of learning. I would 100% recommend! Best app.
Very helpful for learning Chinese
Offers a lot of content and recently added clips of locals saying sentences to improve dialect understanding
(That means I love HelloChinese).
I was looking for an app that gave me something productive to do in little snippets of free time and this is definitely doing it. Can’t believe it’s a free app. It’s really great.
Am not really giving feedback but for this one it is a must
Best chinese app ever
Amazing app for beginners when mixed with a course, great to cement those foundations!
I’ve only had this app for a day and have already learned quite a bit. Very helpful tips and notes at the beginning of the lessons and easy to follow and learn with. I love this app and would recommend to anyone!
Most things are for free or you can just use the points you accumulate doing exercises. Paying a couple of dollars for the extra stuff is also worth it. Links to videos for some extra explanation of the language (e.g. what to say during Christmas holidays) for English speakers are also included for free. Best app I’ve tried by far.
Excellent app with depth and range of learning
From being a complete beginner I have learnt Chines structures and vocabulary very quickly. It makes learning fun and there is a variety of different exercises and games. This is the best app I have ever used and no adverts!
Great app, which would only be bettered with a one off payment for content rather than the subscription options. Fantastic tool for learning
Greatest app to learn Chinese
This app is very helpful for anyone who wants to start learning Chinese! My only problem with the app is that some of the video speakers (not all) arent speaking clearly so it’s hard to translate what they are saying but other than that this app is great! Zàijiàn!
I am truly a beginner. Really bad at languages. Really really bad. But I am picking up Chinese fairly easily! I am shocked that I can understand what people are saying in Chinese. The key is doing it everyday even when you don’t fancy it. I am impressed.
This app is helping me so much with my Chinese. Everything is great except when I need to write characters lol never got it right
Very very useful - as an English speaker, this app is perfect, thanks so much!
I dowloaded the app but unable to log in, its been more than an hour. I tried so many times but it gives me an error “Unable to register at this time please try again later”
The best app for learning Chinese . Much more interesting then any other I have tried and it's for free
On the animal section of the app, on the second lesson, one of the pictures for sheep is actually a goat! I was tricked. Please make the picture a sheep.
The best, nothing to improve.
Actually, could be good to have the HSK levels vocabulary and be able to track progress on that ;)
Amazing app for learning how to speak Chinese
Just started with this app. So far it keeps my attention and really does help me.
Best app I’ve tried for learning mandarin also enjoy their other app speak Chinese
Overall a great app for beginners, it provides pronunciation lessons unlike some apps.
And has no obnoxious money grab ads every step of the way like Duolingo.
Lack of pressure to pay actually makes me more likely to pay - as the native speaker review feature looks very enticing
Revising for an upcoming mandarin dictation test and it is great I can practise character writing pronunciation and it’s fun would really recommend. Thanks!
ive used several other apps including the reputed Rosetta stone but I have to say this one has been the most useful learning tool! everything packed in one.
i saw myself get better after going through it once using pinyin. then i went through it again using hanyu. and have had some cool conversations.
Ditch Temple run and Candy crush! this is the One!!
great app. I use it daily
I just finished all the levels. I really like the app. Really useful for learning the basics. Love the native speakers parts of the app. Helps a lot Is there another level?
Very intuitive and user friendly. Takes the ‘training wheels’ away just at right times. Scaffolds sentence construction and makes it less hard work!
