Use this tool to add tone marks to pinyin or to convert tone number (e.g. hao3) to tone marks.

Although you can use the red buttons to add tone marks, we highly recommend you use the number method (e.g. hao3) for speed and placement of the accent above the correct vowel. [Hint: Type "v" for "ü"]
Note: You do not need to use this tool to enter pinyin in this dictionary.

Here’s What the Written Chinese Elves Have Been Up To January 16 – February 12 2017

Over the last few weeks in the Written Chinese Office…

We’ve been working on this for a while now, so we’re pleased to announce that we now have Chinese with Mike flashcards in the Written Chinese Dictionary, and they’re FREE!

You’ve probably heard of Mike Laoshi from his cool video series on YouTube, but there’s also a Chinese with Mike book series for you to study!

The flashcard sets complement Season 1 – 5 of Chinese with Mike.

Start studying Chinese with Mike flashcards now by downloading the Written Chinese Dictionary app and tapping the ‘Study’ button in the menu bar. Don’t forget to sign up for an account so you can track your study progress!
