This web site is a relatively self-contained module for teaching/learning traditional Chinese character writing. It is suitable for beginning Chinese. Each character is illustrated in a 4? x 4? square with animated stroke order, pronunciation, and English translation. Overall, the module is visually stimulating and engaging. It can be used as a supplemental instructional tool for teachers or an independent study tool for self-motivated learners.
RealPlayer (audio software) is required to listen to the pronunciation. If the user?s browser does not have a decoder for viewing Chinese characters (coded in Big5), then an external decoder such as NJStar or AsiaSurf is needed.
