For example, it's a little bit difficult to read the translation: the font is small and the contrast is low. Also, I'd love to have the ability to turn off pinyin. In my experience, pinyin makes it harder to memorize characters.

She told me that she really likes it because the logo of hanzi xiaobai is so cute and she could make the most use of her time studying Chinese. So out of curiosity, I downloaded hanzi xiaobai and I start to like it because it also teaches stroke orders. Hate to admit it that as a native Chinese speaker, my stroke orders are not always right. Hanzi xiaobai is useful to me in this aspect.

- (2020-07-10) Tianyi Feng: Hanzi xiaobai is so useful, beautiful and well organized. There are many resources, like Chinese-learning books, apps, podcasts as well as experienced Chinese tutors. I love the teaching of stroke orders because my stroke orders are sometimes wrong! I like to take a rest to have fun with Hanzi Xiaobai when I want to take a break from my work. I really love it! I would recommend it to any Chinese learners of any levels and even to native Chinese students who have trouble with learning stroke orders.
