Zodiac--Chinese Characters Alive! is an iPhone App for learning Chinese characters. There are twelve lessons for learning the characters of the 12 Chinese zodiac animals: Rat, Ox, Tiger, Rabbit, Dragon, Snake, Horse, Sheep, Monkey, Rooster, Dog, and Pig. Each lesson includes a movie about the evolution of the character, an animation showing how to write the character stroke-by-stroke, and a morph displaying the changes of the character through time. Our multimedia approach helps students learn through logic, reasoning, and intuition.
The creators of this software also produced Chinese Characters Alive!, the award-winning CD-ROM program for learning Chinese characters. The same lessons for learning the characters of the 12 Chinese zodiac animals are also available on our CD-ROM. To learn more about these programs, please visit our web site:
Chinese Characters Alive! has been featured at the Asia Art Museum of San Francisco and the Huntington Library in Pasadena, California. In 2008, we won the “Innovative Multimedia Curriculum Award” from the Office of the Chinese Language Council International and the “Best Overall Exhibit Award” from the San Jose Tech Museum of Innovation.
Currently, we are adapting our programs for the 3G iPhone so that mobile users can “learn anywhere, anytime.” For more information about our other iPhone apps, please visit:
