One of my daughters has a bookmark with her name written in Asian characters.  Its was given to her by a family friend and she has always loved it, but she’s had it for a long time and she no longer remembers the significance of the characters. She’s tried a couple times to copy them, but she’d probably like to find their meaning again. In today’s Friday Finding post Erin found us a great new app, Easy Chinese Writing – I Write Chinese.  Its designed for someone with basic skills, as well as for those who want to refine their technique.

Learn Chinese and master it with Easy Chinese Writing, (simplified) – I Write Chinese is an app designed to show users how to write Chinese characters stroke by stroke and direction by direction. The app is suitable for any beginner from kids to any age who is new to Chinese learning as well as for those who want to enhance their Chinese-writing techniques.

Each character is displayed with the phonetic “pin yin” system with audio and its equivalent in three languages — English, French and Spanish also updated translations with audio.

The application features 2 versions of Chinese characters: Simplified Chinese is used in Mainland China, Malaysia and Singapore. Traditional Chinese is used in Hong Kong and Taiwan and by overseas Chinese.

The iPhone Mom would like to share the beauty of this craft and language with you.  She  has 3 iPad only promo codes to share so if you would like to try your hand and learn a new skill leave a comment below.  Contest will close Tuesday.  Good Luck!

    My kids are always creating made-up Chinese writing— it’d be nice if they’d learn some of the real characters!

    My 6 year old has just started learning Chinese at school yet the characters remain a big mystery to him, using this app would help him understand the stroke order.
