Characters

Routledge Chinese Character Trainer App - good for revision?

The Routledge Chinese Character Trainer App provides the 510 characters presented in Level 1 and 2 of The Routledge Course in Modern Mandarin.

Use the app as you progress through the lessons. In Training Mode, view a stroke-by-stroke animation of each character. Practise it yourself the character outline provided. Then progress to Drill Mode whereby if you get a character wrong it goes to the back of the pack so you can try again. Test Mode in contrast only gives you one chance so motivating you to learn.

Word Magnets - Excellent Free tool for Sentence Construction

Word Magnets is an  excellent free piece of software which allows you to cut and paste sentences and reassemble them in random order, rather like fridge magnets.  It is extremely simple and can used in a surprising number of ways.  We have also spoken with the guys at Triptico who built it, and they have adapted Word Magnets to accept both Pinyin and Chinese Characters!
