Our new Chinese Flashcards

Chinese Tutor aims to make learning Chinese as fun and easy as possible. One of the ways we have done that in our Chinese Flashcards has been asking you to type the pinyin for words rather than just clicking a "next word" button, making the process of learning and reviewing words more engaging.

Today, we're going a step further by introducing some exciting new features to Chinese Flashcards.

Countdown Timer
We've added a countdown timer to make Flashcards more challenging and fast-paced. It rapidly ticks down toward 00:00.00, keeping you on your toes!

The countdown timer has a pause button in case you need it. It will also automatically pause if it detects that you are doing something else. If you would rather go at your own pace, the timer can be disabled from the Account page.

Event Feed
To keep you tuned into your achievements, we've added an event feed that shows progress events along the bottom of the screen.

Some of the things you'll see in your event feed include:
  • New words you've unlocked.
  • Notifications when you've had a streak of correct answers.
  • Words that break your streaks.

The event feed will only be shown if your screen has room for it. It won't show up on phones, but will be visible on most tablets and computers. Going fullscreen (by pressing F11 on your keyboard) might help if it isn't showing for you.

Try out these new additions to Chinese Tutor's Flashcards now, and let us know what you think!
