Shao Lan Hsueh, Ted Talk speaker and creator of the popular Chineasy Tiles board game, has just released the Chineasy Cards app, making it easier than ever for kids — and parents — to begin to learn notoriously challenging Mandarin Chinese.

The app takes off where the board game ends, using the same colorful illustrations to bring the Chinese characters to life, plus enormously helpful pronounciation of the characters. After introducing the user to a group of words, Chineasy Cards becomes a multiple choice game. Players — ages 4 and older — are rewarded with praise from an adorable caterpillar before leveling up. Players can start on a new level every day, or review previous levels before moving on.

The board game’s website has a downloadable “play guide” with 10 ways to engage with the 48 essential characters.

Chineasy Tiles game, $89; Chineasy Cards app, free to download, monthly subscription services available; Chineasy.com.
