I’ve been working in the IT industry for the past ten years. I started managing and doing IT projects for customers in BtoB. I always wanted to bring an innovative idea and go on the BtoC market. In terms of development, I’ve been enjoying developing with React Native lately.
I believe, the most challenging aspect is not technical but the content you make. You need to add value for your end users if you want them to like it. And this app’s most exceptional quality are all the Chinese grammar lessons it contains. Making great Chinese grammar lessons that are easy to understand and straight to the point is the real work undertook.
I’m Jean-Rémi Laisne, maker of the Ninchanese method to learn Chinese. I’m passionate about tech and China.
I try not to have too many apps on my phone, and only a few apps are useful. I use everyday 'Ninchanese', the other gamified Chinese learning app we’ve made (https://ninchanese.com), since I can see the progress I make every day in the Chinese language. I use the 'Deezer' app all the time too, since I think the flow feature is great to discover new music I’ll like. I also love the 'Imgur' app because it’s fun and the community is friendly. I also love the 'Google Trips' app since I love traveling. And lastly, speaking of travel, I like the 'Chinese Phrasebook' app I’ve made, they are essential sentences to have when you go to China.
I’ve spent years to make the Chinese grammar lessons with our teachers, but I did the app coding in a few months.
On the market, you will only find Chinese grammar apps incomplete and full of ads, and with a not so great design. So I wanted them to have a free, well designed and useful experience.
Learning Chinese is maybe one of the most challenging languages to learn. Understanding how the grammar rules work is vital in progressing into the language. No other app focuses on grammar lessons only and goes that far in Chinese grammar, since you’ll find lessons from a beginner to an advanced level.
I do not plan too much ahead, I listen to user feedback and add features as they ask.
I’ll be happy to discuss with anyone who wants to learn Chinese, so drop a message. And if you are, or you know friends that learn/want to learn Chinese, please share this app with them. I’m sure they will be so happy to have it.
