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

  • 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.

My Chinese Coach - a useful tool for learning Mandarin.

mag3kids, Ciao

  • Excerpt: I bought this game for the whole family to use as we are all 'attempting' to learn Mandarin. It is designed for absolute beginners so might be a bit tedious for people who are trying to improve their knowledge of the language rather than learn it from scratch. This is because you have to work through each lesson and play a series of mini games which then unlocks the next lesson.
  • Pros: great for learning vocabulary, pronounciation and word recogntion
  • Cons: no use for learning to write chnese characters

Needs work...

  • 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.
