Using characters Lucy (an English-speaking girl) and Wei (a Mandarin-speaking boy), the app uses animation and simultaneous usage of same words in both languages to improve vocabulary. This app is very similar to the ‘Learn Spanish for Kids – Bilingual Child‘ app.
While languages like English and Spanish are prevalent in popular culture, languages like Mandarin are rarely heard. That makes learning Mandarin a daunting task. This is a very interesting way to learn. With In-App purchase, there is access to additional content.
Attractive color and bold graphics make it a visual delight. The animation is smooth and bouncing characters make it very easy on eyes.
Overall a good experience. The app is free which gives a kid instant access to the content. To get access to more, they have to unlock books (In-App purchase). Good app for a casual learning.
