It has a unique approach to the complicated process of learning to write Chinese characters, where the app will guide you step by step through the writing, showing the direction, the style and the flow of each character. The app, which is rich in pictures and illustrations, promotes learning Chinese for all ages and for all levels. It also contains interactive games that reinforce the user’s learning.
