Hi RocketChinese Team,

I started with my chinese training here 4 years ago.
I studied around half a year with RocketChinese. 
I was quite satisfied with my progress, than I entered a language school in Taipei.

I very soon realised I need to start from beginning, and could not make much use of the RocketChinese Training.
One reason was, that the basic knowledge of simplified chinese didn't help me any.

So I stopped using RocketChinese completely.
Now I gave it a try again, and I am very impressed with all the improvement on the technology side.
I really like your speech recognisation. Also great technology switch from Flash to modern web technology.

Thumps up for this tough and great decision!

But to be really useful for me, I need support of traditional characters. I have already read some older statements about not supporting traditional characters. So I would love a switch in your system for traditional characters.

Could you please reconsider your previous decision?

Kind Regards

Hi Jan, 

Thank you very much for your comments and feedback. For the time being, we only offer Simplified Chinese Mandarin and we have not been informed of a new version of the course. I will forward the message as feedback to our Language Development Team. 

Kind Regards!

One thing Rocket Chinese can consider is adding a line of Traditional Chinese Mandarin under the Simplified Chinese Mandarin on the lessons.  Another idea would be to add a more detailed lesson discussing the differences between traditional and simplified Mandarin. Most of the differences I think lie in the radicals and only some of them. If you learn those differences, then it is not quite as bad.

Robert-C7 你好!

I will pass this suggestion on to the development team. As you know simplified is used in Mainland China and that is what I grew up on and although I understand many traditional characters, it is still a challenge for me when I come across them. Most traditional characters make for sense than simplified though, because either they bear a closer resemblance to the original pictograph or they are more complete in terms of radicals, so for me there is a certain depth and beauty to them.

Anyway, I'm blabbing on, I will see if we can't add that to the list.

Keep up the good work!
