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.
Additional features include audio voice prompts for each character, a Missed Character List to help you review difficult characters, and an alphabetized character index.
This version of the app includes the complete set of 99 characters required for level 1 of the YCT Chinese language test, the leading standardized assessment exam for children studying Chinese. The characters are divided into 5 lessons of 19-20 characters each. For more information about the YCT, see the Hanban website at: http://english.hanban.org/node_8001.htm
