The program continuously encourages you to form connections between the new items you are learning and your existing vocabulary database. Your existing database of characters is presented as an interconnected web, allowing infinite drilldown.
The program is suitable for complete beginners because it lets you add items to your list giving just the Engish and pinyin. You can add the Chinese characters at the same time, or later on if you want to.
It offers a host of additional features such as one-click image search and flash-card style testing with randomized fonts. Includes the 100,000 + item CC-CEDICT Chinese/English dictionary.
