Notes: If you see question marks, boxes, or other symbols instead of Chinese characters (中文), install Chinese support for your computer. The pinyin of each Chinese character will be displayed if you pause your mouse pointer over each Chinese character.

Check out nciku

I found another very useful tool to learn Mandarin. It is nciku. From that site, you can even search a Chinese character by handwrite it.

The feature I like most is the ability to search any English or Mandarin words while surfing the web by just highlight any words if you had loaded the tool to your browser. You can also listen to native speaker the pronunciations for any words or sentences.

Check it out and let me know whether you also find it useful.

Using this tool, you can listen to any Mandarin characters posted in this blog.
