Master the most commonly used Chinese radicals--and representative characters based upon them--with the Chinese Radical Trainer app from Clavis Sinica.
Radicals are the building blocks of Chinese characters. The app uses attractive stroke animations to show you how each radical or character is formed, one stroke at a time. It then invites you to practice writing the radical or character yourself on the touchscreen, and gives you immediate feedback on every stroke you draw.
Three different learning modes--Train, Drill, and Test--take you from your first encounter with each new radical or character through systematic writing practice to a thorough mastery of its structure and stroke order.
This version of the app gets you started with a set of the 24 most frequently used radicals. These 24 radicals form over 2100 basic characters and roughly 2/3 of all the characters used in modern Chinese. Master these basic building blocks, then, and written Chinese suddenly looks a lot less intimidating than it did before!
In addition to the 24 radicals, the app introduces eight common characters based on each radical to illustrate the uses of the radical and help you recognize the clues that radicals often provide to the meanings of characters.
