It is a thoughtfully designed app for novice learners of Chinese as a second language to write and read Chinese characters. The app is based on《我愛寫字》, a series written by Dr.Luk Chiu Kwan Hung who is an outstanding educator in the field of children’s education. All words and phrases of the app are daily and common. The delicate display and lucid instructions are adorable. It looks like a well-illustrated vocabulary volume with either traditional or simplified characters, pinyin, English translation and bilingual voice-over.
When you start the game, you will learn at least 10 words at first. Then you are allowed to play the matching or Etrix game. While you are learning, besides practicing writing for twice per word, you can also tap on the “teacher” to learn advanced lessons (such as pictograph or phrases) or tap on character to learn proper stroke order. There are also some useful gadgets beside the volume like colors of pen, eraser and trash can, which makes the learning more interesting and convenient. Moreover, it supports multi-players and score records. For parents, they can track children’s scores to know their progress. For learners, they can organize friendly competitions between friends.
As I see it, this app can really do more than a simple book can do. Learning with this integrated Chinese vocabulary book would be very efficient and enjoyable.
