I am taking my second Chinese course of University and I have been really enjoying it. Going to class and labs with the assignments has been really good at reinforcing the language. By attending class and participating I can really learn the material well. Right now I am feeling fairly confident in my abilities and I am continually impressed by how much I am learning. I have also benefited from a couple of online resources that allow me to further advance my knowledge as well as look up what I already know. I hope you find these resources helpful if you ever learn Chinese.
My most favorite online resource is www.xuezhongwen.net . This site is a great resource as I can look up Chinese characters that I don’t know the pinyin for or I can search using the pinyin or I can type out the characters and look up the meaning. Overall I would definitely recommend this site to anyone who is learning Chinese.
Another site I really enjoy is the Chinese Flashcards on Yellowbridge. These can be really helpful when you are trying to learn Chinese characters. I have spent many hours doing these flashcards and they have been very beneficial in making me memorize the character, pinyin, and meaning.
