"Wordz Lianxi" - Language Learning System
Now in the App Store: Bilingual Beginners Book
And Now: A-B-C Picture Book
Our first product, "Chinese 4 Beginners", was designed for learners of Chinese that are ready to learn Hanzi -- simplified Chinese characters and words. The instructional design was developed while studying at Teacher College and presented at an Education Technology Conference -- see the academic work here.
A written guide for learning Hanzi is available to augment the iPad and iPod Touch versions of this software (see bottom of Chinese learning page here).
For more about why you should use tools like the Wordz Lianxi system for second language learning, see also here. And see info on the future arcade-style "WordPiles" game for practicing words learning with these Wordz Lianxi products at www.wordpiles.com.
The language learning tools suite is growing -- we are adding language pairs, and new word and sentence recognition and construction apps.
