If you are serious about learning how to read and write Chinese, this is the online program and app that I would highly recommend!!!
It got me through the years of memorising how to hand write thousands of characters for university exams!
My kids have a fantastic reading ability in Chinese, everything we have done including songs, reading story books, reading programs, etc. over the years have all contributed to their success, but Skritter has played a huge role in my kids being able to recognise so many Chinese characters!
