Learning a foreign language with an app has some benefits. Two of them, if we point out, are: you can do it on the move wherever whenever and you can learn with a variety of fun and creative contents. In other words, app-based learning can save you time and money compared to conventional institute learning. Many language learning apps are on the app market at the moment and you might wonder which one to choose. If you are interested in Chinese, you probably want to know about Chaipang, an easy, fun and creative Chinese learning app.
Wecref CEO Jeongyeon Park, who developed Chaipang, majored in business administration at Korea University and deepened her knowledge and experience in Chinese at Fudan University, Shanghai, China. She grew curiosity why western students speak Chinese better than eastern students. After some time of observing, she came to a conclusion that it came from different approaches: the western learn expressions first while the eastern characters and intonations first. “It was interesting for me to observe that the western not only learn faster and speak better but also they helped the eastern talk with Chinese. From then on, I started brewing ideas how to better teach Chinese and Chaipang is a result” says Park.
Chaipang focuses on visual and hearing instead of somewhat tedious step by step books. The visual and hearing includes singalong, choosing characters and chapters, traveling villages, watching animations, playing games and trying different languages. Intonation in Chinese is very important but rather difficult. With Chaipang, however, children, and also beginner adults, can naturally learn it with those fun and creative contents especially the singalong. Thanks to this, you do not feel headache of complicated ups and downs of the pronunciations. The animations are also not long but short so that the learners do not get bored but easily follow up. One lecture consists of four animations and three singalongs and games. Most expressions in the app are common expressions of children in China used at home, schools, parks and marts every day. This trains you to speak freely in a given situation without a hesitation. You can also use Korean, Chinese and English interchangeably.
CEO Park gives this meaning ‘We Create a Fantasy World for Children around the World’ for Wecref. Chaipang app fully on the market, she is now expanding the scope of educational contents to Youtube, IPTV and many other possible online platforms so that more children and learners can benefit from her creative language learning contents. Meanwhile, Chaipang listed its name in the Education Korea 2021 in the Early Edu of the Year category. Try the six free contents of Chaipang available at the moment to see whether it makes you learn Chines fun and easy. (PowerKorea)
