Learning Chinese - Mandarin, Chinese - Cantonese

I always compare your site to LingQ. 

I study Mandarin and Cantonese. The ability to a) not have unnatural spaces between the words (there are no spaces in those languages) and b) easily link and unlink words are huge advantages over LingQ. 

However I have similar issues with the app. If you make it so NO downward scrolling is necessary at all, just go to the next 'page' that would make your app better than the competition in my opinion. 

Also, when browsing the library, get rid of all the flush-just show the title. Because currently it includes a picture and unknown/learning/known/total words. Together that means I can see only one item on my screen at a time.

Cantonese neatly avoids the pronoun issue by using 佢 (keoi5) for he, she and it. 

Mandarin uses different characters but all are pronounced ta1.

I'll be adding more of these in the future. I think we recorded up until week 17. 

If you see the words 错声 that's a note to myself that the audio needs editing at that point. 

If you find any typose or words that don't match the audio please let me know.

The song is 旧欢如梦 by 李克勤. Pretty good classic Cantopop song.
