Chinese language app for iPhone

¡°Life is a foreign language: all men mispronounce it¡±
- Christopher Morley 1890-1957
Visiting China is an amazing adventure. Unlike visiting Britain, France, and other western European countries, China¡¯s history, culture and language is vastly different than my own Anglo Saxon history.

As I set to return to China for the fifth time, technology, in the form of an iPhone app will be at my side. I¡¯m able to muddle through very basic French in order to find the Louvre in Paris, (albeit, not leaving a good impression!), but in China, its all about tone. One can easily offend or insult by mispronouncing a word which has multiple meanings depending on the tone delivered.
