I work at Pandanese (just know I am biased but honest ) and would like to introduce our app to Linguaholic community. Hope it will be useful for some of you who learn Chinese. So, Pandanese is a web application focused on teaching the Simplified Chinese vocabulary. It's way more common in the world both offline and online (except in Taiwan, Macau, and Hong-Kong). It uses Space Repetition System (check out Anki) to learn and review in set intervals to match the mind's natural processing speed of building memories. See pic below. We use spaced repetition with our first intervals at 4 hours after learning and 8 hours after your first correct review. All in all, it takes 9 reviews (SRS-levels) to memorize the item. Pandanese teaches from the very basic -- from radicals through characters to vocabulary. It goes without saying Our app uses mnemonic sentences to help memorize the meaning and pronunciation. It's proven to aid with memorization too. I know that some of you are still locked down, and perhaps it's is the perfect time to learn or review some Chinese characters and words. Everybody is welcome onboard! Note that the Pandanese lessons start from the very basic -- the simplest radicals, characters and words. See Lesson 1 structure. So if you are at the intermediate or advanced level, I would recomment to start from later lessons or choose higher learning speed. We are a really small team who work part-time. So, I'm sure it's not perfect but we're doing our best, and your feedback will be really appreciated.
