- Corrections for RTH Vol.26 July 2012
A few corrections for RTH Vol.2 went live today. There were some minor typos in keywords, and in particular the range of characters between frame number 2751 to 2765 were incorrect. Thanks to zonius, aphasiac, myoshiquick, Frank. Please post any other errors you find in the RevTH Development Log.
- New domain!29 June 2012
The new domain name is live: reviewingthehanzi.com! I hope you like it :)
Please let me know if the redirect broke anything I will look at it asap!
- Yay Forums!28 June 2012
We now have a forum entirely dedicated to the Chinese language and a supportive community for the Remembering Hanzi method!
Including a section entirely dedicated to the Remembering Hanzi method by James W. Heisig & Timothy W. Richardson is important because the method is still fairly new and somewhat controversial in the Chinese language learning community.
Having a place to discuss and hear about other people's progress and successes is very helpful, as has proven to be the case with our Remembering the Kanji forums.
We also now have a dedicated Feedback forum for this website! Your feedback is always welcome and can help me figure out better how to develop the website, thank you!
You can expect a clean layout with no obnoxious advertising. Sponsors are always relevant and useful such as HanziStudyPoster.com.
Please join in and spread the word :)
Ps: And yes we have a new domain, but I haven't gotten around to figure out how to do the redirects yet ;) You can already use it if you like.
- Lesson Reviews8 June 2012
Today's update adds lesson reviews to the Progress Chart page.
Click the "Test" link next to any lesson to start a flashcard review. The hanzi for that lesson will be shuffled together each time you review.
Please note this mode is different from the Review page. It does not use Spaced Repetition therefore you do not need to add flashcards through the Manage page, and you can review as many times as you like.
- Follow Reviewing the Hanzi on Google+!1 May 2012
If you like Reviewing the Hanzi please follow and +1 our Google+ page.
This site still has very little traffic and we need more Chinese learners to share mnemonics on our Study pages! :)
I will continue posting future updates to the Google+ stream, as well as reshare interesting posts I come accross about the Chinese language and the writing system especially.
- Traditional Hanzi Volume 2 is in!13 April 2012
Remembering Traditional Hanzi Volume 2 has been added to the Study pages (and flashcards)! The new characters are in the range #1501 to #3035, following #1 to #1500 from RTH Volume 1.
I'm afraid the special character "biáng" was not added. It would have been fun to share mnemonics for the infamous 57 strokes character; however the changes to my script and website code to support that one single character is not really worth it.
This update was made possible thanks to the RevTK community efforts, see Remembering the Traditional & Simplified Hanzi Book 2 spreadsheet.
- Working on prototypes for Simplified Hanzi support22 April 2011
I'm currently brainstorming and creating prototypes to address how the site will handle both Traditional and Simplified Hanzi.
As a side bonus, the changes will also allow to add arbitrary character sets. Perhaps a Chinese equivalent to JLPT levels?
- Welcome to Reviewing the Hanzi!26 March 2011
The website has just been launched with support for Remembering Traditional Hanzi, Volume 1.
Reviewing the Hanzi is a website where you can share stories for Remembering Hanzi using Heisig's mnemonic system.
Get inspiration from other fellow hanzi learners all over the world. Copy stories you like and share yours with the community. Review hanzi with flashcards and an easy to use spaced repetition system.
The flashcards display the most common Pinyin readings below the hanzi. Where there are more than two readings documented by the UNIHAN database, only the first two are displayed (these should be the most common readings, which is how they are ordered).
Audio will be added later for the Pinyin readings.
(UPDATED) Welcome to Reviewing the Hanzi Forums!
Other misc. tidbits
This website is the Chinese version of Reviewing the Kanji. Both sites are designed for use with James Heisig's mnemonic system.
Please use the contact page to send feedback, bugs etc.
You can also post in the Reviewing Hanzi Development Log.
