A Backlog of Interesting Chinese Language Learning
From time to time a get a backlog of language learning sites I’d like to pass on, so here, in short order, are some you might like to check out:
- J.T. Yaung, of Building Characters fame, launched another site this year called “Defining Characters” which is dedicated to “the proper translation of English words into Chinese characters.” Send J.T. a brief translation request, and he’ll post the result on the Defining Characters blog. For a reasonable $9.99, you can also get a 15-page e-book with all sorts of information and stylings of your characters.
- Jessica Liu, who currently teaches English courses (but
used to teach Chinese at an international school and tutored
foreigners in their Chinese language learning efforts),
has put up a site with rich resources for language learners.
At her Learn
Chinese Blog, she uses Chinese idioms to to provide
brief lessons on Chinese vocabulary and the culture hidden
behind the idioms, which are frequently used in both written
and spoken Chinese.
- Keith West has created and provided a number of Chinese language learning tools and resources on his Mandarin Learning Tools page, including an MP3 Player for Language learning, Measure word flashcards, tone drills, online vocabulary flash cards, and a series of downloadable flashcards for printing and using in your language studies.
- Professor Jianhua Bai of Kenyon College has posted a number of “Video Clips of Survival Chinese” — watch a short video for each of 20 “real life” situations, then answer questions to test how well you understood the dialogue in the clip.
