Taiwan provides E-learning Program for Chinese language

Taiwan has released its official version of an online learning program for traditional Chinese characters and an English version for those whose mother tongue is not Chinese, the country's top education agency said Sunday.

The Ministry of Education (MOE) said the new version features the stroke orders of 4,808 frequently used characters and the 37-symbol "bopomofo, " a Mandarin phonetic system used only in Taiwan, and they come with audio files, helping students to learn traditional Chinese more efficiently.

The new version updates a trial version that was released two years ago and has received 1.1 million hits since it was launched, the MOE said.

The new version will allow those who do not know traditional Chinese to use Hanyu Pinyin to search for characters, according to the MOE.

Taiwan has long championed the use of traditional characters while China uses simplified characters, and the MOE said it hopes this e-learning program can help people learn how to write traditional Chinese characters correctly.
