Our Opinion

There is no doubt that this apt is incredibly exciting. My youngest nephew is a bit on the young side for this app, although I sat him down and we both completed level 2 together. We translated each word in English by gliding it into the translator and listening to the words that were being said in Chinese. We had a lot of fun attempting to say the vocabulary when it was spoken, plus there were certain words that my nephew pronounced better than I did. He has started to learn two new languages as a result of some shows that he has been addicted too. His parents are delighted that he is so enthusiastic about learning! Furthermore, my eldest nephew is learning Chinese with this app by herself and has told us that he loves the sound of Mandarin. We are so happy with Disney because they haven’t just made an app that assists children to learn another language; they are involved in assisting children at a global level too. Learning is incredibly vital as far as we're concerned and my sister really appreciates the fact that both her boys really like learning Chinese through this app.
