  • Excellent interface: you get what you pay for.

    pros: excellent interface for listening and reading along with the chinese, with fingertip access to audio and translation at all times. cons: content is a bit like leafing through a travel magazine in the back seat of a airplane…. in my opinion, needs more interesting traditional stories and fairy tales. use recommendations: go ahead and skip ahead: the more complex stories are very accessible, and provide more linguistic structural context than the simple stuff. development recommendations: more real stories! children learn quickly by being captivated by magical and inventive tales. why are adults always relegated to the purgatory of a virtual airport lounge? requires a subscription ($90 a year, or $12 for a month), but has free stories that you can take out for a test drive to experience the relief of its excellent user interface. it is well worth paying for this excellent learning resource.
  • Very fun and applicable

    As a long time Chinese learner that has looked into many ways to improve my Chinese, this is one of my favorite tools. The stories are interesting to read and very informative on relevant and compelling current events and traditional and cultural topics. Also, they have connected stories that are also entertaining and I really appreciate the creativity. The Ben and lili saga right now is so great. The app also color codes level of difficulty of words according to the HSK which is very helpful, and you can save words as quasi flash cards to practice with. Love this app so much.
  • Expensive but good

    The program is great for maintaining one’s reading ability and learning new words, but the annual subscription of $80+ is a lot.
  • A must have!

    Highly recommended. One request: can users download MP3 playlists of the lessons?
  • Great App, Too Expensive

    I love this app. It has a lot of what I need in it: Short articles I can get through quickly, different levels, flashcard support... And the free version still has plenty of content. I would love to upgrade, but there's no way I'm paying $12 a month for it. Great for anyone looking to improve their reading (and a little bit of listening). The only thing I can think of to add would be post-reading questions, probably multiple choice.
  • Addictive but way too expensive

    I love the app and I tried to subscribe for a month, almost read everything in it and I would like to read it again but the subscription fee is just to much! I hope u can make a little reasonable price for learners, other that this app worth a 10 stars ;)

    Mandarin is not an easy language to learn to read in. But this app helps make consistent practice easier, thus making the whole process simpler.
