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 proverbs 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 #70: 同舟共济。


Do you want to speak and sound like a native Chinese? Do you want to better understand Chinese culture? Don't you want to have more fun with Chinese language learning - try any idioms here in the app on your Chinese friends and you'll experience the fun right away.

Idioms and proverbs are the pearls of a language. 100 most common Chinese idioms (usually 4-character set phrases unique in Chinese), with helpful Pin-Yin and Chinese and English explanations, are provided in this app. The easy switch between Chinese/Pin-Yin and Chinese/English mode is very helpful in learning and self-testing.

This app, along with two other related apps developed by us (100 Chinese Proverbs and 100 Chinese 2-Part Allegorical Sayings), will greatly liven up your spoken Chinese.
