Anyone, regardless of proficiency level, can master the Chinese language through a fun and easy system – Creative's PlayChinese™ Pedagogy System. Only 15 minutes a day is needed – to PlayChinese!

Sim Wong Hoo, Chief Architect of the PlayChinese™ Pedagogy System and CEO of Creative Technology, discovered long ago that the greatest obstacle in the learning of the Chinese language is the fear of the Chinese language. Effectively bilingual, Sim leads the way in pioneering a new pedagogy that revolutionises the way people approach the Chinese language, helping to eliminate fear of the language and enabling people to master Chinese through fun and play.

The PlayChinese Pedagogy System is designed to help eliminate this fear and unlock the ability to master Chinese through four key pillars:

ZiiO Shenbi – an Android-based tablet pre-installed with Sim's revolutionary PlayChinese handwriting input software, and a whole host of content and Magicware applications, together with a set of fanciful colour MagicPens
iFlashbook PC-based online learning portal
WaWaYaYa children’s educational content (DVD)
ZiiBoook - online library with access to over 1 million books, plus 3D flipping software and unique collaborative sharing technologies



The fifth pillar of the Creative PlayChinese Pedagogy System is the HansVision Chinese productivity software. It is the super-pillar that enables anyone to enhance their proficiency level in Chinese with minimal effort. Other features of the PlayChinese Pedagogy System include the PlayChinese 14-book series in hardcopies, the PlayChinese Magic Cards and other Magicware.
