Many thanks! I looked at the skritter.com, I am sorry that I have to say it would be very painful to learn Chinese characters (or written Chinese) in this way. How does a brand new learner to combine the single characters into words, phrases, or sentences? How to apply the characters to actual communication in daily life? Without using, I think it would be very easy to forget the characters or languages which you have tried so hard to remember. Yeah! Thanks for you reminding me of something important, though. Learning the languages you can frequently use in life, learning from the course which can connect with real life would be a kind of short-cut for Chinese learning, or any kind of language.
