Just one week on the website and I am loving it. The lessons are fun and easy to learn. The way Quizzes are structured, they make the learning faster. I wish, I would have found this website and Teacher Li a year ago.

I just started with the HSK1 course.
I think, the course itself is great.
But I am studying in Taiwan.
I wonder, If I should to the character lessons (like 2.1). Probably they are still useful for me, even I need traditional characters, and not simplified.
But your tests don’t accept traditional characters. It would be for satisfying, if I could pass with traditonal characters.
Do you plan to do something about traditional characters?

Sorry the quizzes only support Simplified characters, but it is a great idea to add traditional characters. We would love to include it once we are done with our current projects. But the differences between Traditional characters and Simplified Characters are not random and there are strict rules between them. We have a video lesson discussing the Simplified Characters vs. Traditional Characters, you’re more than welcome to take a look at it.

thx for the reply. I already watched your good video about the differences.
I will give it a try, installed another keyboard on my laptop and my phone, and will follow your character exercises for simplified chinese.
I hope it doesn’t get too complicated 3 keyboard input methods, and I also don’t get to confused with the different character sets at the same time.

Great if you could add some kind of support for learners in Taiwan.
