Fun China World: Learning Chinese Made Fun And Easy

What Is Fun China World?

Fun China World is a multiplayer game for learning the Chinese language and culture. In the game, you are the chosen one, an adventurer who travels around different places in a virtual China. You will meet a variety of characters, challenge and play with other players, explore the mysterious oriental culture and accomplish engaging quests in the game, all of which help you complete the fun playing and learning.


As we all know, the most effective way of learning a language is to practice, practice, and practice. There is always a problem in the traditional ways of learning Chinese: students lack the motivation to learn and practice continuously. Students are very slow to learn and very easy to lose the interest. That's why we develop Fun China World, and more.

What Can You Do in The World

As the chosen one in the mysterious world, you are destined to join the challenge of the World Chinese Championship. To reach the goal, you bring the backpack and the map to start the adventure to the world of China. You will hunt mysterious monsters to be your pets, experience secret and interesting missions, explore exotic culture and play with people from all around the world. 

Our World


To help you understand the people, the language, the culture and the daily life in China, we are crafting a virtual world of China. It looks like the real China, including bustling cities and well-known places, incredible diversities of customs and people from all walks of life.


Characters of All Occupations


As an adventurer, you will get to know a lot of characters like you may meet in real China, who have their own personalities and occupations. They are the core of this world because every one of them has their own story to share with you and will give you the best experience of learning the Chinese language and culture. It is a world that will make you feel like living in a real China.

Gameplay

We are creating a world that helps you not only get immersed in China, its people and its language but also feel great with a ton of fun. Full of things to do, Fun China World will enable you to see various architectures, handcrafts and stuff, participate in traditional Chinese activities, challenge characters and players, take care of and fight alongside your pets, accomplish different quests, learn to speak Chinese and get into the Championship.
