Today’s app shout out is for the Touch Chinese app for iPhone. The full version of the app is currently available for free download. The lite version only covers 5 animals. There are plenty of Chinese flashcard apps out there. This one covers 27 different animals with Chinese paintings as the illustrations for the flashcards. I like the integration of art exposure with learning vocabulary.
These flashcards also go a step beyond the normal flashcard app and demonstrate the use of the word in a sentence. There are audio playbacks for both English and Chinese. I also really think that having the Chinese and pinyin with tone mark notations is invaluable.
Recommended for early elementary aged Chinese learners and up.
