Three different learning modes--Train, Drill, and Test--take you from your first encounter with each new character through systematic writing practice to a thorough mastery of the character's structure and stroke order.
This version of the app includes the complete set of 623 characters required for levels 1, 2, and 3 of the HSK Chinese language test, the leading standardized assessment exam for students of Chinese. The characters are divided into 24 lessons of 24-27 characters, arranged by HSK level and usage frequency.
A version of this app is used in first-year Chinese language courses at the University of Michigan, where the author is a faculty member.
Usage note: please be patient when you select your HSK level the first time you use the app. Because of the large amount of data involved, it can take 30+ seconds to load the first time.
