"How do you say Hi in Chinese?"

Learn the most basic words and evaluate your pronunciation

OpenMouth Learn Chinese and its teacher application that helps people learn and get familiar with this language, focusing on the speaking part.

The application is divided into two sections: Lessons and Contacts. In the first one, there are groups where you can learn how to pronounce different sentences based on popular topics like Simple Words, Express Feeling, Meet People, In a Restaurant and many others which are really useful in your daily life and trips. Inside each one of those topics, you will find some words and sentences and you'll be able to listen to their correct pronunciation and practise your own.

On the other hand, in the Contacts section, you will meet people who're also interested in learning Chinese and talk to them and exchange impressions.

While the idea is interesting and extremely useful, the app doesn't work as well as it should and sometimes it freezes. The design could be also improved but overall this is a helpful application for Chinese Learners.

    Overall I like the idea. The ratings were sometimes unpredictable but speech matching algorithms are still not perfect.however now the app stopped rating me at all. After recording me and playing back my speech I no longer get an evaluation. Also the sound quality of the lesson recordings could be improved . too much echo on them and some are distorted.

    My problem with the app is it keeps force closing, and I swear I say the words exactly like the recording and never get more than 3 stars, I even had a Chinese native say the words and same thing 2 stars, definitely needs some work
