Few days ago I wrote about Duolingo, a fun app to learn new languages. The popular app features many languages, but incidentally Chinese is missing. If you'd want to learn Mandarin Chinese, fret not. Available for both Windows Phone and Windows 8 devices, HANYU.CO(hanyu.co) is a great app dedicated to the Chinese language.

Brought to you by Spiffy Ventures, the company that developed Effectual, HANYU.CO is a complete Mandarin Chinese language learning service with hundreds of useful lessons, guided learning, progress reporting, and useful tools like a dictionary and HSK vocabulary lists.

Remember Tawkable Chinese, the game that helps players learn the Chinese mandarin language? Hey, it’s not like any platform is overflowing with games dedicated to language learning. Tawkable Chinese happens to be a timed exclusive for Windows Phone 8, not to mention a Nokia AppCampus winner. Oh, and it’s free.

Shanghai-based developer MNE Creations recently updated Tawkable Chinese, but the Store description doesn’t have room for release notes. Luckily Windows Phone Central has snagged the complete release notes to share with you now. Head past the break to learn more about the game and what this update has changed.

Learning a new language isn’t easy – especially Asian languages. Of course you want to immerse yourself in the language you’re learning as much as possible. It also helps to make the learning process fun somehow. After that, it’s up to your personal dedication and interest in the idiom.

Indie game developer MNE Creations (located in Shangai, China) has taken all that into account when creating their Windows Phone 8 exclusive game, Tawkable Chinese. They aim to get users started on the road to learning Mandarin Chinese by wrapping language lessons up in an adventure game. The main game is free, with language drills sold as a single In-App Purchase.
