Chinese Characters for Novice Mandarin Learners
I would love to learn the beautiful Chinese Characters. So many resources on Google. Please give one or two really wonderful sources.
I normally go to https://www.chineseconverter.com/en/convert/chinese-stroke-order-tool. You paste the character in the box on the left and the stroke order is showed on the right.
I recommend a hands-on workbook that teaches you the base hanzi and gives you room to write them out. Then make flashcards! That's what I do. I also recommend Hello Chinese. It's an app with a similar structure to DL, except it shows/lets you learn almost exclusively with pinyin, putting the hanzi below the letters. For a language like Chinese I feel it's easier to go the route native speakers do -- get a grasp on the language before you worry about writing as much. I have a much easier time picking up the language on Hello Chinese and then learning hanzi separately (and it always feels nice to come across one I already know too!)
