Studypond is an interesting website. They have a good tag line: Making Mandarin Manageable. A reporter on NPR the other day mentioned that television sure likes its alliterations, and I suspect the web does as well (this site is no exception).

Chop Widget

Must give a shout-out to Eric O. from Primezero for all his efforts in helping me set up the Pinyin Practice Chop on the left (just below the poll). It’s available for WordPress and for iGoogle and any webpage or blog really. Just grab what you need from his download page. Or you might just opt for the chop generator and save the image from there. So many possibilities.
