500 Chinese Characters – Preschool Must-have for iPad on the iTunes App Store.

Just saw that Hongen Education and Technology company that designed a lot of Chinese learning apps put a hundred of their apps for free or at a reduced price during the Chinese Spring Festival. Chinese New Year generally marks the beginning of the Festival, so I assume that it runs for the first 15 days of the new lunar year. If so, today is day 11, so you may want to download what you want now and sort through it later.

We had this 500 Chinese characters for preschoolers app for the last month or so as well as several other of the Hongen apps. I thought they were pretty well developed considering a lot of the Chinese apps that are friendly enough for Westerners to use are pretty awful in quality. Some of the apps I couldn’t use like the parenting ones since you have to be fluent in Chinese, but the ones geared for children are pretty good.

Recommended for anyone who would like to teach their children Chinese or reinforce what they are already learning. Grab the free ones while this deal lasts!
