Free, safe, and made with love for students of Mandarin Chinese. The Learn Chinese Toolbox includes the best learning materials and apps for serious learners.
Studying Mandarin Chinese is not easy - everybody knows it, regardless of what native speakers usually say to novice learners. We believe that learning Mandarin Chinese shouldn't be a disheartening, time-consuming, and frustrating process.
It certainly requires a considerable time investment because the tasks at hand are manifold, and some would say relatively more and harder than with any other language. In fact you have to memorize characters, train your ears to tonal inflections, and learn how to pronounce a large amount of seemingly alien sound combinations. Let's be honest: most of the time it's not a lot of fun.
The Learn Chinese Toolbox brings the fun back to your studies by combining engaging methodologies with top-notch apps.
A careful selection of software and learning materials. We bring you open source, freeware, and free-of-charge resources:
It's a pretty nifty contraption, isn't it?
Get the file from our server and run it as you would run any other executable file. It should install everything on your desktop. Open the "Learn Chinese Toolbox" folder and find all the tools and apps you'll ever need for your journey into Mandarin Chinese. Install at will. Voila!
The Toolbox tries to address the fragmentation of the Chinese learning digital ecosystem for personal computers, and tries to provide a single "one fits all" solution for students of Mandarin and language nerds. The Learn Chinese Toolbox is a pet-project created by some guy at Tencent (2307565767 on QQ).
The project creator is a language nerd himself (seven and counting!) and is the first one to benefit from the Learn Chinese Toolbox.
