巧宝识字( 1 to 6collections ) 或幼儿识字 或认物识字(for younger kids)(English is called Learn Chinese Character) very useful app.
Especially useful for parents who can't speak mandarin. :?

It can read out the words for your children, read out the Chinese strokes(笔画), hanyupinyin(汉语拼音), English words to assist, pictures to illustrate and words it can form into(词语), can pratice Chinese writing on app itself. :rahrah:


This can be downloaded on iPhone too. I downloaded Part 1 to 6 巧宝识字 but it does not appeal to my child so much when she was in K1 and K2.

My English potato girl finds 字宝宝 app more appealing.

Go App Store, search for chinese 字宝宝 for primary students


Just saw d 字宝宝from App Store, it only gives 2 books free, very limited words.

Actually I just started my DD on 四五快读 on 18 Mar. For the past 1wk, other than showing d 生字 from d book, I oso let her listened to d strokes from 巧宝just to reinforce d words. Today she manage to read 4 complete sentences from d book all by herself! Yeah :boogie:

For 巧宝 there at least 1200 free Chinese 生字(from 6collections) that she can listen to and try writing. This is a reinforcing tool for me :rahrah:


字宝宝 is used by some MOE Chinese teachers to reinforce the list of Chinese words to be learnt in the primary Chinese curriculum.

You may try Sage 500 series too. 基础汉字. Big font and appealing to both my kids. For siwu, if you are getting from Popular, get book 1 try out first.
