Learn the proper way of writing Chinese characters with the Encounters Chinese Character Trainer app from Yale University Press. Designed to accompany the Encounters Student Book 1 textbook, 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. Natural audio recordings are provided for each character.

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 edition of the app includes 208 characters introduced in the Encounters: Chinese Language and Culture, Student Book 1 textbook (ISBN 978-0-300-16162-5).
