Free chinese resources

Recommended Posts


Hi there!!


I'm new here, and also new to Chinese...just giving a try :P I have experience learning other languages though. Here you have some resources I use to learn any language...these are not specific for Chinese, but you cant learn Chinese with them:


Vocabulary: memrise. It's an Flashcards app to learn Chinese

Language exchanges: I've been searching through the forum and I haven't seen an specific thread about the topic...I think exchanges are the best way to improve both speaking and listenning skills.

I normally use Langademy or HelloTalk (android app). If you live in a big city, you can also schedule meetings at meetup.com.

Grammar: I use the grammar section of chineseboost. I have a basic level, so I don't know how it will work for those who a greater level.


I hope these helps someone!

Hello Hector

thanks for the list. I would add that PLECO is one app that is certainly worth paying for.  I think many are still not in the habit of paying for APPs but it reality the cost is pretty small and a massive aid for learning Chinese. PLECO have a free version you can try and if you decide to continue studying chinese you could consider upgrading


I use PLECO I'd say 20 times a day especially the OCR function
