CS Xiezi - HSK Level 1
By Clavis Sinica
Open iTunes to buy and download apps.
Master the characters in the HSK Chinese language test with the Xiezi Chinese Character Trainer app from Clavis Sinica. The app uses attractive stroke animations to show you how each character is formed, one stroke at a time. It then invites you to practice writing the 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 character through systematic writing practice to a thorough mastery of the character's structure and stroke order.
This version of the app gets you started with the complete set of 178 characters required for the HSK Level 1 Chinese language test, the leading standardized assessment exam for students of Chinese. The characters are divided into 7 lessons of 25-26 characters, arranged by usage frequency.
A version of this app is used in first-year Chinese language courses at the University of Michigan, where the author is a faculty member.
What's New in Version 2.0
* Audio prompts for each character
* Character index alphabetized by pinyin
* Missed Character List to manage review of difficult characters
* Optimized for iPad and iPhone
My Favorite Chinese Learning App
This app is way more fun than "Candy Crush" and you'll actually learn something. I mastered the HSK written in under a month. Love everything - the train,drill, test functions; the mandarin audio; the missed characters option; the customizability offered in settings. This is a great product.
good for learning stroke order
I only use the training side where I simply trace over the outline provided. Then I try the stroke on my own with paper and pencil. I have noticed the "exactness" that the other posters mentioned on the drill side.
