Apps: My Chinese Copybook
Want to learn how to write Chinese? Aedify Technology Limited has recently launched a chinese writing app named “My Chinese Copybook” for kids to learn Chinese writing with correct stroke order.
My 5-year-old was the tester of the app. Since she’s very used to playing with apps on the iPad – she easily understood how to navigate – following the directions on following each stroke order.
When she would complete (or trace) the character – a picture would appear (for example – a cow would show up after she finished). However it is not clear if the word means “cow” or “animal”.
The only criticism I have is I wish they would have displayed the English translation after the writing of the word. I couldn’t find English directions at all.
You can hear the word meanings in Cantonese and Mandarin – which is a plus.
I also think the app needs more animation as a younger player would get bored easily.
My Chinese Copybook is $2.99.
