This site contains thousands of print-friendly Chinese reference sheets, tests,
revision aids and a unique
Chinese dictionary called CantoDict. It is aimed to help you speak, read and write Hong Kong
Chinese. As such,
the pronunciation given is not Mandarin 'pinyin' or 'Putonghua', it is Cantonese
'LSHK' or 'jyutping'.
Having said that, many of the sheets, flashcards
will also help you learn Mandarin, as Chinese writing is the same in both
Mandarin and Cantonese. Also CantoDict can run in both Cantonese and Mandarin
Please see our Discussion Forums to either ask questions or help answer existing ones.
Happy Chinese New Year to all, especially my fellow Rabbits! :-)
CantoDict 1.4.2 has now been released. More information
3rd December 2010
Well 2010 was a year plagued by server issues to be honest. This site has become increasibly busy, with some months seeing over 3 million page views.
This all took a toll on the old hardware, and I had to spend far too much time fixing database crashes etc in the background.
The good news is that about a month ago I invested in a much more powerful server, so hopefully this will keep the site stable for the forseeable future.
The new server costs about twice as much as the old one though, so a Big Thank You to the users who noticed the announcements about the changes on the forums and donated.
With advertising revenue, flashcard sales and donations the site is at present just about breaking even, so your support really is appreciated.
