Hey Chinese learners!
You may have noticed that we’ve recently tweaked the setting of the Chinese character levels so you are no longer tested on spelling in your own language. Finally!
Who does this affect?
This affects learners on courses with Chinese character levels. If you are on a course that doesn’t have Chinese character levels, relax, bié dān xīn!
Sounds good, but any downside?
Your previous progress on the character levels would be lost. This is because the previous setting was tracking your progress in the wrong way. For example, if you were an English speaker learning Chinese character “好”, it asked you to tap/type the English definition “good;well”. To some extent you were tested on how good you were at spelling your own language, which wasn’t very efficient! Now that we’ve fixed it, you need to learn the character levels again if you want to regain the progress.
We understand it can be a bit frunstrating to lose the previous progress but we believe this is a positive change and makes it more efficient from a learning point of view. Don’t forget you can always skip a level if you don’t want to do it. And if you do want to brush up the character levels, qù ba!
