Miaomiao and Doudou make learning to read and say 30 common words in Chinese an enjoyable experience.
Currently 30 words are included
Child friendly environment
Nice quality design elements have been used throughout the app. The interface is uncluttered and easy to use even for young users.
Pleasant background music is played continuously with no option to mute it. An option to mute the background music is a must for those that may struggle with focusing on the pronunciation of the words.
Thirty common words relating to people, nature and animals are the focus of this app. As each word is presented you see the word written in Chinese and English and a graphic with cute animation in which Miaomiao and Doudou participate. You will also hear the word as it is spoken in Chinese. This method provides a great visual connection between the two languages and the object.
The learning to write in Chinese feature is not currently available, but appears to be planned for a future update as it is marked as coming soon.
There are times when it is difficult for the user to differentiate between syllables that sound the same. Providing a visual method or enhancing the narration would be beneficial for those that may be having a difficult time hearing the difference.
Animations that feature the two adorable characters, Miaomiao and her dog Doudou, provide entertainment in this educational app. Adding activities that extend the learning process would be of great benefit.
Currently priced at $2.99 this nice quality app only includes the learning to read and say the 30 words. The addition of the learning to write feature will make this a better buy, as would adding activities.
Learn with Miaomiao: Chinese provides a safe learning environment for children. The app does not include external links, social media or in-app purchases. There is a button on the main screen for switching languages which kids may be drawn to.
