Description

Easy Chinese will make Chinese easy. It is designed for beginners.

If you want to learn Chinese as second language, where do you start? As a Chinese teacher, I often asked myself this very question. After many years of experience, my answer is that the best way to start teaching or learning Chinese for new students is to start with simple sentences. Why? Let's quickly compare some other ways of learning Chinese. You can start with pinyin, but students of pinyin must dedicate many months to the endeavor before they can begin to converse in Chinese, and they tend to lose their motivation. Starting with Chinese characters sounds logical, but the character only makes contextual sense, and they take on different meanings in different sentences. You wouldn't want to start with grammar unless you are a linguist. Starting with sentences makes learning Chinese easier and fun. It is most efficient and effective way of learning this language.

Easy Chinese 1 consists of 10 lessons. Each lesson has about 10 sentences. For each sentence, the application provides its English translation, and it also reads aloud the whole sentence. As a student, it is easy to repeat after the woman's voice. With some practice, you will be able to remember it and say it correctly. To ease the pronunciation, Easy Chinese also slowly reads each Chinese character in the sentence one by one. You can follow along while Easy Chinese highlights the character that is being read, like a sing-a-long! If you would like to practice more on one character, you could touch on the character. There are Pinyin for each Chinese character placed on top of each character. This way, you can learn the pinyin along with the characters.

With Easy Chinese, you will learn Chinese a sentence at a time. You will also learn characters in their contexts and learn the pinyin of the characters. It's easy to practice listening and speaking while you are on the run. If you have a group of people learning Chinese together, you can practice conversing with your newfound language!

If you are interested in learning Chinese Pinyin without characters, please download another program developed at June's Language Center called "Chinese Pinyin".

This application runs on iPhone 3.1. It fully supports both portrait and landscape orientations.

We are working hard on compiling the next volume of Easy Chinese. If you have any suggestions or comments, please contact us at chinese900@gmail.com Thank you!
