Gotta say! I'm blown away by how well the language tool handles Mandarin! It doesn't feel the need to chop up the words a n d a d d u n n a t u r a l s p a c e s, and having pinyin on mouse over is genius! Great job LT.io team. Really, I'm impressed! Truly impressed.
Thanks Clayton! Are you perhaps considering learning Mandarin?
I'm reading the Malazan Book of the Fallen.
Would love to learn a bit. I think my current attack plan is to use a pinyin based course/audio course while becoming literate and then later merging and consolidating them with the readingtool. Tagalog will always be my main foreign language for obvious reasons, but Chinese is sounding tempting especially with all these neat tools (readingtool.io, this anki addon that adds color coding tone marker to hanzi, etc). Reading tool really handles Mandarin with some grace. Too many websites/webapps are Eurocentric, but I love how well LT handles asian languages in general.
That's true! Mandarin is very interesting to learn.
I used to study Mandarin for a long time when I was young, but now it's fading away from my brain.
I will need to start learning it again :)
I'm glad that you're fascinated in asian languages here !!
