Chinese Language

Collected here are some websites that I find helpful for learning the Chinese language.

  • zhongwen.com (中文.com)

    This is a great website for looking up Chinese characters. You can search the characters by pronunciation using pinyin. A wealth of nifty features are found here, such as the animation for writing a character and the side-by-side displaying of both traditional and simplified characters. The link for character animation is located beneath the text for the character.

  • Dict.CN - English-Chinese Chinese-English Online Dictionary

    At this website you will find both an English-Chinese dictionary and a Chinese-English dictionary.

  • Input Method Editor (IME)

    On this web page, you will find a good tutorial on how to use Microsoft's Input Method Editor (IME). IME lets you enter Chinese characters from a standard U.S. keyboard.

  • Learn a Word (学个词)

    This is a website sponsored by Voice of America which consists of one-minute segments. A new English word is presented in each segment. Several examples of the word usage are given and both text and audio are provided. It’s a great way for learning both English and Chinese!

  • Popular American (流行美语)

    This is another website sponsored by Voice of America which consists of five-minute segments. Two English idioms are presented in each segment. Both text and audio are provided. It’s also a great way for learning both English and Chinese!
