As our world is moving towards an experience economy, we are more willing, and even more eager, to pay for a fun, enjoyable, and memorable experience beyond a product or service. The same situation is also happening in learning Chinese around the world. It is especially the case in mobile learning, which is growing in popularity. Beyond learning Chinese, learners expect to have a fun, enjoyable, and memorable experience associated with or generated by learning Chinese on mobile devices. Different from the conventional ways of learning Chinese, learning Chinese on mobile devices focuses on achieving hierarchical levels of learners' needs and desires. Since mobile devices, especially Chinese learning apps, have been widely used in learning, many recorded or unrecorded efforts have been taken to enhance mobile experience in learning Chinese around the world. This edited book invites further efforts to compare mobile experience in learning Chinese among native speakers of different languages or in different environments. The identified similarities, differences and shaping factors will be theorized for a better way to describe, explain, and predict mobile experience in learning Chinese. This edited book will also include tips and success factors for instructors and learners of Chinese. Most importantly, this edited book is designed to share the knowledge and skills on how to take full advantage of features and functions of mobile devices to enhance mobile experience in learning Chinese, a unique, memorable, and beneficial way of learning Chinese.
