WrittenChinese.com (WCC) Chinese Flashcards with Audio (Character) was engineered to give you the most systematic and efficient method for learning Chinese characters and building vocabulary.
(Note: This is the Lite Version and is limited to the first 50 ranked cards.)
The frequency in which different Chinese characters appear in common everyday text varies substantially. Some characters are rarely ever encountered while some characters appear in practically every other sentence. For this reason, we have developed our Chinese Character Flashcards to help you learn in a systematic sequence starting from the statistically most commonly occurring characters.
You may be surprised to discover that learning just the most common character "çš„" alone will yield you about a 3.72% literacy rate for general Chinese text. Learning just the top 50 most common Chinese characters will yield you a 29.08% literacy rate.
In addition, each character comes with seven of the most common examples of how the character is used when it is integrated into a word or phrase.
â€¢ Completely offline and does not require an internet connection. Practice and learn anywhere you go!
â€¢ 3200 characters with Simplified and Traditional variations, pinyin, definitions, Cantonese pronunciation in Yale and Jyutping, Cangjie, Four corner, radical, and stroke count.
â€¢ Spoken voice pronunciation by a native-speaking Putonghua professor who has a "putonghua shuiping ceshi" top-level certification.
â€¢ Our pinyin voice recordings are the most complete in the industry including "fifth tone" sounds and "combined syllable" sounds such as those combining "å„¿" as a suffix.
â€¢ Each character includes a list of the seven most commonly used "Usage Examples" complete with definition, pinyin, and voice pronunciation.
