Mandarin learning sites

Here are some of my favourites:  This is a good word dictionary and can be synced with Skritter.  This is a character writing website. I have done the free trial and intend to subscribe as soon as I get my bamboo tablet hooked up. You build your own vocab lists and you can import lists from partner sites like ChinesePod.  Again, a dictionary but with a hand-writing input area and you can build your own word lists or share others lists.   This is the download site. You can put the engine on your iPhone as well. I haven’t yet figured out how to upload files successfully. Maybe you can do it and teach me.  I subscribed to this site for a year and a half. It was good to get me started.  I occasionally go to this site but I don’t use it much.  Confucius Institute – this is the China site. My friend runs the Confucius Institute in Coquitlam.  This is an on-line site that used Integrated Chinese, the most commonly used college program (used at UBC).  Vocabulary trainer for Integrated Chinese  This is another dictionary site (German, English and French input). I have not used it yet.   Chinese Phonetic characters – This site was developed by a user at ChinesePod.  This is a site like ChinesePod, but actually from NY. I used the free level for a while and liked the format and lessons.  A Flashcard site. I used it a few times but prefer Anki.  This is a Chengyu dictionary. I haven’t used it yet but I anticipate using it in Langara level 6 and beyond.  Another character tool site. I haven’t used it yet.
