吃飯！ Time to eat! Our latest Chinese game app, Chinese Fridge Dim Sum, has officially been released on the iTunes App Store. As you can probably tell, this Chinese game app aims to teach kids fun dim sum vocabulary words.
As with the original Chinese Fridge app, this version also has game modes to help kids learn pinyin, simplified Chinese characters and traditional Chinese characters. In addition, new dim sum graphics, special blocks and sound effects bring new fun and ‘flavor’ to our game.
We’re happy to announce our Dim Sum version of the Chinese Fridge game app is now in beta for testing. We’re still working out some bugs, but for now we wanted to reward our blog followers with this sneak peek preview image of the game. Stay tuned in the next few weeks for the official release!

Hey Chinese Fridge fans, we wanted to let you know that an update to the app has been submitted so that it is officially out of beta testing.
The app approval process generally takes a week, so you can expect Chinese Fridge to hit the app store live sometime around Friday, February 1.
The app will be available via the app store around then, but until then please note the link will not be active.
Though the app is no longer in beta, we’re already working on the next update which will add new special blocks to make game play more exciting.
Thanks to all the users who participated in beta testing! We got a lot of great feedback and will begin adding new features and improvements as we review the feedback.

Many people have asked me why I decided to create Chinese Fridge — where the idea of a Chinese game for kids came from, how I created the app and what I hope to accomplish from it. The answer to all of these questions lies in my personal educational experience throughout my childhood and my desire to improve access to education for future generations.

Two Nebraska schools plan to continue their Chinese lessons for kids for at least three more years, according to the Associated Press.
Scottsbluff High School and Bluffs Middle School decided to renew their two-year-old program with the Confucius Institute and the University of Nebraska-Lincoln.
Both schools offer a nine-week exploratory class, and the high school offers several classes to teach kids Chinese.
