Simplified Chinese! But Good Tool.

E. L. Szarkowski "Live life with no regrets.", Amazon
29 July 2011
  • Summary: This is a good tool to engage in learning in the spoken Mandarin Chinese as it uses the DS voice recognition program in a way other hand held game systems cannot. I had fun playing the games and trying to figure out how to read/write the Simplified Chinese. However, I was looking for a good tool to learn the Traditional Chinese system and, as this game depends heavenly on the reading/writing vs. pingin of Chinese, it did not meet my needs.

Fun, but sloppy writing/stroke order

Frederik Lindberg, Amazon
10 January 2009
  • Summary: I bought both Nintendo DS and Chinese Tutor based on positive reviews here. PRO: With a few exceptions, I'm happy with it. It uses lessons, locked lessons, games, touch screen, microphone very well to create interactive and fun lesons. A bit Anglicized (e.g. shi4 = "yes", guo4qu4 = "past"). Pronunciation is great as is the ability to record voice and play back. CON: These guys are *sloppy* on writing, which makes some of the writing exercizes very frustrating.

Needs work...

N - B "Concise", amazon.co.uk
1 February 2010
  • Summary: I am currently on my 2nd year of studying Mandarin and decided to use this game as extra support and for practice on the move. And in theory, this game is a great idea, but sadly it is held back by certain issues: - Mistakes, such as missing words and tones. - There is no 'voice calibration' thus the game can sometimes not recognise what you've said and mark you as wrong.

Fonctionne en français

  • Summary: Le jeux est en français. Exercice un peu répétitifs, mais idéal pour une révision l'air de rien. Bonne progression dans la difficulté.
