Wow!!! Thank you so much! That's **exactly** what I wanted! It's a pity they don't go up to 3000 characters though. :P

I use "Writing Chinese" together with the volumes 1 and 2 of "Chinese with Ease". My current method is to write out the characters for a lesson 15-16 times (depending how much room there is on the line), then I go to the actual lesson and copy everything: lesson number, header (if any), each line of the dialogue, the exercises and fill-in-the-blanks (in characters instead of pinyin). I also say every character/word/phrase loudly - before, during and after, so, pretty close to the scriptorium method so often mentioned by professor Arguelles.

I manage about two lessons a day. Last one was #88, so I should be able to complete it in a week or two.

I have thought of entering everything into Anki (individual characters, words, maybe even phrases), but lately I have found that I remember better if have "produced" the text myself.


I read on this site somewhere that the Assimil writing course is bad. You like it? Perhaps I'll buy it with Vol 2. *thinking*

By the time you are done with "Rapid Literacy in Chinese" you are probably ready to continue with example sentences from on-line dictionaries.

Here are a few links:
http://www.chinese-tools.com/tools/dictionary.html
http://www.iciba.com/
http://dict.cn/search/
http://www.nciku.com/
http://dict.hjenglish.com/

Just input a character or a word and the dictionary will come up with a number of real-life examples where those characters are used.
