It would be great to be able to add character animations here now and then, so I am now testing those available at nciku.com (the best Chinese/Mandarin dictionary).
Well... It didn't work. I am pretty sure these animations are not Made At nciku, so I will hopefully find an alternative source. ...
I have still not managed to find those animations I think I've seen somewhere, but on the other hand I found a way to show the animations here, if the people at nciku.com think it is OK.
end of update
In the meantime a GIF animation from this page. Not a bad alternative, really.
Testing something more advanced from eStroke
Too "advanced", too big, too many Google ads....
The reason for picking this particular character is that I tend to forget the stroke order all the time. If you want to get 5 new characters to practice every day, follow the nciku blog. Here is a permanent link to the very first five characters.
