  1. I am trying to find a good, FREE online character practice worksheet generator (that includes pinyin and English meaning). ArchChinese is NOT FREE. So this page was misleading and only a disappointment.

  2. I found so many interesting stuff in your blog especially its discussion. From the tons of comments on your articles, I guess I am not the only one having all the enjoyment here! keep up the good work... Intro Maker
