www.Omniglot.com is one of the world’s leading websites dedicated to writing systems and languages.
Leafcutter Studios worked with Omniglot’s founder, Simon Ager, to create an app to help Chinese language learners get to grips with the Chinese writing system.
The app presents four hundred of the most commonly used characters organized into twenty easy to complete lessons. For each character the app features:
- large easy to read character graphic
- pinyin spelling with tone marks
- English translation
- animated stroke by stroke demonstration of how to write the character
- audio pronunciation of the character by a native Chinese speaker
Each lesson includes exercises to practise reading, listening to and writing the characters.
The app also records you progress and shows you stats on each character so that you can target your learning most effectively.
