Chinese Touch is a language learning tool for Nintendo DS with the main focus on Chinese.

In contrast to other applications, Chinese Touch does not try to provide a complete course for a specific level of language skill, but is meant more as a generic tool to make your own learning docs easily portable and more accessible for your individual needs.
