eStroke Animated Chinese Characters

Added 11/19/2009
I learned about this software when I had the field placement. My supervising teacher introduced me to this program and she actually bought the software. It helps the learners to write Chinese characters correctly. The eStroke site provides an ideal tool for learning Chinese language and character writing. Every Chinese character is animated stroke by stroke in an appropriate speed. The characters are presented in both traditional and simplified forms as well as their corresponding pinyin (phonetic spelling) and English translation. Users can also create new Chinese characters with eContour in a related site.

Very practical Chinese lessons that mainly aims at building communication skills. I will use a lot of them since they are well designed and are divided into four different levels.

As a native speaker, I do not actually learn Chinese grammar in a systematic way. It is great to have this resource to be able to access it and apply it in teaching non-native speakers.
