Monki Chinese Class

Reviewed on 3/6/15

Learn how to write words in Mandarin Chinese with this cleanly-designed app. Users are first guided through forming the letters, step-by-step, then once the letter has been traced, it turns into an animated image, illustrating the word.  You can also hear the word being pronounced. Two of the first 10 words are created by combining two characters (like “mouth “and “water,” creating “saliva”), so users also gain a bit of understanding about the structure of the written Mandarin language. Additional word lessons are available as an in-app purchase.

Age group: Grades K-2, Grades 3-5
