"Best Chinese language tool I have ever
seen! TCB has everything a serious
student of Chinese needs to maintain
and improve their fluency. I started
studying Chinese 32 years ago. I would
find simple articles and have students
read it into a tape recorder. This has
everything for reading, including very
interesting articles. You need basic
Chinese skills to use it but you will
improve very fast, because you will
read listen and study everyday -
because you will want to."
"This app gives me the perfect way of practicing reading and adding to my vocabulary without having to switch to another app to look for words in the dictionary.
So convenient and all at my fingertips. I love the variety of articles for each language level.
This is great for both those who need in-context HSK practice and those who just need to maintain and improve their modern Chinese.
My favorite feature is that articles are categorized by level. Some days I read level 5 articles to give myself a challenge,
but some days I read level 4 articles for reading fluency and to enjoy reading a whole article with ease and making myself feel better about my
Chinese even if I know there's still a great way to go. I like that there's idioms, grammar points and keywords in each article too! Best of all, it's all in one app!"
"One of the most serious problems for learners of Chinese is to find suitable reading material.
This means both that the text should be at an appropriate level, and that it should be interesting to read.
With level-adjusted articles about recent events, The Chairman's Bao kills two birds with one stone,
offering comprehensible reading practice in an accessible and entertaining way.
TCB is a valuable asset to both students and teachers of Mandarin!"
"The Chairman's Bao is a super a app
for anyone wanting to improve their
Chinese listening and reading skills. 12
years ago I intended to sit the HSK, but
never got around to it (that's a long
story!). Now, between full time work
and family commitments, I have finally
registered and the test is just days
away! Fortunately, the TCB app is in my
iPhone making for a quick and
convenient way to get up to speed.
