Easy Way to Learn Chinese Characters: Use Skritter
by Carey Chambers, dragonbn.com
If you are studying Chinese, you already know that learning the thousands of Chinese characters you need to achieve fluency is a daunting task. Fortunately, a web application called Skritter has made learning Chinese characters easier, and more fun. Plus Skritter boasts a higher retention rate than traditional study methods.
Here's how it works. You use the online, interactive templates to learn and draw characters. Skritter offers instant feedback, including guidance on stroke order. You can learn the meanings of the characters as you go, and Skritter provides audio playback as well. It really is a wonderful, well designed study aid.
The best way to understand how Skritter works is via their free demo.
Skritter teaches both simplified and traditional Chinese characters, and Japanese characters too.
Skritter is free for 2 weeks, after which subscriptions cost $10 per month for individuals, and less for schools.
