I am doing this with my five year old. It is intuitive. Easy enough to not feel discouraged. Hard enough that we feel like we are learning everyday.

I’ve been studying HSK 3 with this app and I highly recommend for beginner!
Thus, the quality of this app is pretty good among other free Chinese learning apps
Thank you so much:)
They kept trying to up sell me every time I wanted to unlock something even though I paid for the premium package. So I canceled my subscription. I do not appreciate their way of doing business. Don’t waste money on this program!
I finished everything on the free app and I am now using premium +
The Hello Chinese Team are constantly adding to the app and making improvements. I’ve used several Chinese language apps. This is the best one.
This is a great app to open the doors to chinese language. It is ok as an introduction to the languaje and it gives you vocabulary. This developer is really after his app, what is always very good.
Ni hao wo shi feifei jia na da ren
This app has given me such a warm intro to Chinese.
Worked through the free lessons month 1, and decided to continue, on my 3rd month now. So happy that I can always toggle the pinyin on/off to focus on learning characters as I improve.
No ads or any pressure, it’s been just value.
I’m poor , I don’t have money for charge your app , today my hello Chinese app was frozen , because I couldn’t charge it .
I learned with this app so easy , but now I can’t will continue this app ,
This is so bad for learn anything should pay money.
I have premium active on my account but i dont remember the email i set initially on it, because usually i just click the app and it just saves my progress. Today when i logged in everything was back to begginning and it told me to login again. Is there any other way to reset it
I’ve been using this app just to try and learn Chinese to better understand what people around me are saying. It is really amazing all the different units and ways of learning that I find it really fun! It doesn’t feel so much as learning a language as playing a game which I really enjoy. This is the best mandarin learning app I have come across.
So nice and easy to learn
Great app, best I have used
I prefer this over Duolingo
I just got this app so this review might not be as accurate, but it’s amazing. I’ve used other subscription based apps like Babbel and yousician, and this does NOT push you to buy the subscription (I.e limited time, many locked features). Very in depth learning and amazing lesson customization . Highly recommend if you want to gain any fluency level in mandarin.
So far I am very happy with this app. I am new to learning Chinese and find that this app is great. The words are said nice and slow so I am able to pick up what is being said unlike other apps where they speak so fast it is pointless.
Love it. Very simple to use !
Very good ap i love it
Good for new person
Great app to learn Chinese
I am taking a mandarin class (pin yin only). This is an amazing app for assisting with pronunciation, learning vocabulary and answering questions. I will continue to practice with this app after my class is done to maintain and grow my knowledge. Plus, ira fun! Just like a game. Very good app.
Hands down the best learning program that I’ve found. I’ve been searching for 1 month for a learning program, well, my search is finally over.
good for beginner
Love love love !! Wish they had a program that was more intense and more podcasts!! Love you guys tho
The app is awesome! Trust me it really is better then duo lingo but it’s trying to teach me there is a word in English called
“Long da” and the translation to mandrin pinyin is Lóngdà, I’m confused
Much better than Duolingo for learning Chinese! I’m learning a lot
Just a rip off duolingo
Hi there I’m you can you please come and pick it out and do it and I can do it I can do a little bit of it and then I
Can’t believe this app is free! I’ve got addicted as if I was just playing a game.
For sure it’s better. 100%
If your looking to learn Mandarin, this app is the way to go. Very easy to use and intuitive. Highly recommended!
Really enjoying this app. The free version is fully packed and is very enjoyable. I learned a lot in a short time! Fully recommend
Truly, the best language learning app I’ve ever downloaded. A+++++
Different people have different learning styles. This has definitely been good for me! A bit more development in presentation, slicker technology in the games and more variation in visuals to keep my interest without feeling repetitive when reviewing.
The overall teaching structure and reinforcement methodology for vocabulary and grammar is better than most commercially popular software on the market. Kudos to the developers! Keep fine tuning and improving this software and it could well be the the new top mainstream choice!!!
Great for beginners. This app actually be high key bangin 💦💦😩
Awesome! It really teaches me chinese the best way and it is completely free with no headaches! 10/10 would recommend
The recent update has made this app even better! Highly recommend.
This new version’s colour and graphics is faded, boring, and uninspiring. Bring me back my old version.
Unexpectedly , I found the best App ,real useful and the most needful one.I swear it is the most suitable for beginner.Cause it includes so many categories and lessons .And explanation are so esay to understand .The point i like most or the difference between other application is that u don't need to find dictionary while u r learning.U need to only touch the word for meaning .
The app is really helpful
Thanks so much!
Is it magnificent ❤️❤️❤️❤️
La verdad es que había estado probando con algunas otras herramientas, y la verdad es que esta me está gustando de verdad, usa los mismos audios que otra herramienta que usaba pero además incluye audios de personas comunes, si estás pensando estudiar este idioma, creo que esta herramienta es muy buena, la recomiendo mucho 😁.
I just started but I like your app. Because it helps me with pronunciation and identifying the characters as well as writing them 🤗
It’s a great game! Everything’s basically free and it teaches you a lot quicker and in different ways like: how you pronounce words, writing them in Chinese, important words like you, me (m and f) and numbers. In a lot of apps I have tried out they don’t teach you the important words, they also make you pay for stuff but this app is great get it now I’m learning fast!
Great way to learn some Chinese! I’m just starting and I like the easy access to lessons! Enjoy!
I think at the start there should be more grammar structure lessons, and how to introduce yourself.
I want to he next level
Way more personal than duolingo
