The Inspiration Behind the Change:

You, our dedicated users, have always been at the heart of everything we do at Ninchanese. Your love for our app and the way it has helped you make significant progress in your Chinese learning journey has been our driving force. However, we also listened closely to your frustrations and challenges, such as the overwhelming review system, the difficulty of speaking stages, and the tiresome task of typing vocabulary on a phone…

We realized that to truly address your concerns and create the best possible learning experience, we needed to do more than just update our existing app. It was time to take a step back, re-evaluate our approach, and start fresh. And so, the journey to the new Nincha app began.

Crafting a Better Learning Experience:

With your valuable feedback in hand, we set out to create an app that would cater to the needs of both beginners and advanced learners. Our goal was to build a more supportive learning environment that encourages exploration and growth, without the fear of making mistakes.

One of the most significant changes we’ve made is in our teaching philosophy. Instead of focusing solely on testing your knowledge, we now offer more guidance and support.

The new grammar mode

For instance, our new grammar building mode suggests correct word placement when you’re unsure, helping you learn progressively making sentences with new words.

The new speaking mode

We’ve also tackled the challenge of speaking exercises head-on. Understanding the frustration of perfecting pronunciation in a tonal language like Chinese, we’ve made the learning process more forgiving. You can now retry sentences and even see the pinyin if you’re struggling, ensuring that you can practice and improve at your own pace.

The new listening mode

Listening exercises have been revamped as well. While our previous stages were rewarding, they could be time-consuming and challenging. In the new app, you can simply listen to the sentence and select the corresponding blocks, making the process more engaging and accessible, or still choose to type what you hear for an extra challenge.

The new vocabulary and review mode

Another problem we wanted to overcome is feeling overwhelmed by the reviews. Reviewing the words you learned is essential to progress and consolidate your knowledge of the Chinese characters. But if you let them pile up, and never complete your reviews, that’s frustrating and detrimental to your learning progress. Completely counter-productive, even.

So now, you’ll be able to do your reviews faster by indicating whether you know a character or not, without typing it. It’ll be a lot easier to finish your reviews and consolidate your progress, which is the goal.

Learn Chinese in your own language

What’s more? We’ve translated the app and its content into several new languages, making it easier than ever to learn Chinese. Whether you’re a native speaker of English, French, German, Spanish, Portuguese, Japanese, or Korean, you can now dive into learning Chinese in the language you feel most comfortable with. This expansion is all about breaking down barriers and creating a more inclusive, accessible learning environment for everyone. 💗

A New Chapter Begins:

The journey to the new Nincha app has been one of discovery, innovation, and collaboration. Your feedback has been our guiding light in creating a better, more intuitive, and more supportive Chinese learning experience. There’s so much more we want to do and we hope we can make it together.

We can’t wait for you to experience the new Nincha app for yourself. Stay tuned for more updates, and get ready to embark on a new chapter in your Chinese learning journey with us.

Thank you for being a part of our community and for helping us shape the future of language learning. Together, let’s continue to explore the beauty and depth of the Chinese language, one character at a time.
