Chinese Corner combines mobile social networking with language learning

November 29, 2013 in Education (F)

[] London, United Kingdom - With over 500,000 users of the OnDemandWorld suite of Chinese learning apps, the company continues to find ways to bring a social media experience to the Chinese language learning experience. Chinese Corner offers social features that allow you to interact with others while learning a language.

Terence Lau, producer of the app makes clear that this is no accident, saying "these interactions not only enhance your learning experience but also opens the doors for new friendships."

By connecting students with both other students and teachers, the app offers an interesting new way to expand the social network of users whilst also building the variety of fellow students they can practice language skills with.

Chinese Corner was created to be simple, easy, and exciting to use. Lau emphases that "We see Chinese Corner as a great example of how mobile social networks can bring users a very practical benefit. Helping people learn a new language goes far beyond just sharing photos and funny quotes. Instead we help students connect to find travel buddies as well practice partners for the exam."

This app was created for those who have a great interest in language exchange and in understanding the Chinese culture. App users will not only have a chance to exchange language with other users, but to also work with Chinese teachers. By working with Chinese teachers the app user will get a deeper learning experience.

With social learning at its heart, this app allows foreign speakers to easily learn the Chinese language and experience the Chinese culture. In return, Chinese speakers who use this app will be able to learn English. This sort of social exchange allows for everyone to learn at a more personal level.

There are numerous apps on the iPhone and the Android that help users learn a variety of different languages. Most of these apps do not focus so much on social learning style. Instead these other apps focus on word lists and pictures, which do not always capture the users' attention.

According to Lau, the best method for learning a foreign language is to make it enjoyable - and that's why the social features of the app are so important. Chinese Corner has focused on that learning method by making an app that makes you want to learn because you enjoy socializing with others. On top of enjoying the social aspect, the user is also applying what they have learned from Chinese Corner in a real conversation. This challenges the user to learn more so that they can better understand and carry-on conversations with others.
