Any resources for learning traditional Chinese characters?
I have a lot of family in Taiwan, and they use traditional Chinese characters, so I'm curious if there are any good online Mandarin learning resources that use traditional characters?
Rival apps such as HelloChinese and ChineseSkill support them; DL says it plans to add support in the future but does not specify when. Note that you can enter any supported answer in either character set on DL; it is merely the option of displaying text in traditional that is not yet supported.
Depending on your browser, however, there are various add-ons that can convert the characters for you (search in the relevant directory of add-ons); I seem to remember a DL user also wrote a dedicated script extension to do this, although I'm afraid I can't remember who it was or where to find it.
Edit: here it is

Hello Chinese, Chinese Skill , and Lingodeer all have both traditional and simplified. I believe Memrise has a traditional mandarin Chinese course as well, but I'm not positive.

Lingodeer has that option, I think? It's a really nice (also free) phone app for learning Chinese, Japanese and a few others. I pair it with Duolingo a lot.
I know FluentU offers Traditional and it should also be free. Rosetta Stone offers Traditional, but it costs a ton of money to get. It's a really really good program tho if you have the cash.
