March 31: a major update coming out in days, with full support of a powerful and general Chinese language learning community: you can ask any questions about Chinese learning or the 100 2-part sayings in the app, we and other users will share our answers, all conveniently in this app.


Mrs. Hillary Clinton said recently: "I have often quoted a Chinese proverb which says that when you are in a common boat, you have to cross the river peacefully together. Well, we are in a common boat."

Find out about this proverb (should be idiom) and many others in our app and two other related apps (Chinese Proverbs and Chinese Idioms).


Idioms and proverbs are the pearls of a language. Chinese two-part allegorical sayings, a unique type of Chinese idioms, are used every day by native Chinese speakers to make the language vivid and fun.

To understand, speak, and sound more like a native Chinese speaker, and to have more fun with the language, a student of the Chinese language should grasp some typical Chinese. This can also help him/her better understand the Chinese culture.

100 common Chinese two-part allegorical sayings, with Pin-Yin and Chinese and English explanations, are provided here. The switch between Chinese, Pin-Yin and English mode is simple, helping students to easily self-test their understanding.



This app is very intuitive to use, and you can easily switch between Chinese, Pin-Yin and English mode while READing the proverbs one by one or BROWSEing them randomly. During READ or BROWSE, you can also add any sayings to your FAVORITES list easily, where you may also delete them later.


We'd love to help you learn the Chinese language and have more fun! For any questions or suggestions, please send email to:
