  • Great for intermediate and above

    By Face_of_Lace
    I've been looking for ways to practice my Chinese more naturally than just vocabulary memorization and writing practice. I'm at a level where I don't need direct instruction but more access to the language in use. I LOVE what this app offers, even without a subscription, I'm able to practice listening/reading at a decently high level; get vocabulary building beyond basics I already know; save words for quizzing; and control how much help I get with a lesson (just characters, characters and pinyin, or those plus word/grammar markers) and you can control the speakers speed. I also enjoy the range of topics offered for the different lessons...and 👌on the name - everyone loves some good puns.
  • The best one

    By wsomphalos
    This is the best Chinese learning app—you should opt for this one!
  • Not enough to read

    By Theprocode10
    I read probably 15 stories/passages a day. And before you know it, you’ve read all of it. Now, I pay $12 every month for this app, and this is disheartening. Please, post more stories...

    Amazing app that offers authentic and interesting texts for learning Chinese
  • Pleco is great, this is better

    By Donovan Allen 安立能
    I’ve used pleco all through my university years and this Du Chinese app is amazing. Not just a dictionary but gives you the different levels of HSK and truly helps my continued learning.
  • Great product but should let us save grammar points

    By Boston st
    I really enjoy DU Chinese, it’s helpful and user friendly product. However, I think this app could benefit from allowing users to save grammar points for practice the way it allows users to save words. I think another improvement would be to build readings on top of another.
  • Great reading tool to accompany your Chinese story

    By jaag26hon
    This a great app with short story categorized into different level. Chinese is such a complex language and reading according to one’s level is very important not feel frustrated.
  • Lessons won’t load

    By Ashley08766777
    Often when I open the app the lessons won’t load. For a paid app this is unacceptable. Furthermore their material is too easy for anyone who’s already passed HSK 5.
  • 真的觉得很好👌🏻

    By 罗拜华
    If grammatical explanations are added, it will reach perfection, but I love it! 如果有机会添加些语法解释就成为个十全十美的应用了!
  • Super Chinese Reading App!!

    By Zard1
    I would HIGHLY recommend this app as a learning app for reading Chinese character texts. Easily access pinyin, definitions, translation of entire sentences. Listen to native speakers read the text to sharpen your reading skills! It would be nice if the radical for each character were indicated somehow.
