First, I would like to say that i'm really happy with my purchase.

I bought the cards vol1 and vol2 by amazon, both are great, excellent price-value, and exceeded my expectations.

Second, this cards are not for begginers, are not to learn by yourself, you have to know pinyin and have some formal instruction before use this cards, in particular with volume 2, that introduces more complicated symbols .

Third, can help you with simplified chinese and traditional.

Fourth, each card include valuable information as:

1.-Meaning

2.-Pinyin

3.-Radical

4.-Chinese Proverb or expression that use that word in pinyin/hanzi/english.-

5.-3 or 4 common words that includes the symbol (pinyin/hanzi/english)

However, the volume 2 doesn't include the order of the strokes.

Volume 1 includes the order. I have no idea the volumes why are different, or i received and older version of volume 2, but for me it's the only lack of this cards.-

Finally, the cards are in package that has the shape of a book. That it's great to carry the cards everywhere.

This it's important for me because i used other cards before and the box was a nightmare, every day the box opened in my purse, and i have to order de 500 cards by number again.

I totally recommend this volume.

Sincerely

Carolina from the south of the world

PD: Sorry for my english, i speak spanish and some chinese

Since I have both "Chinese in a Flash" and "Chinese Character Flashcards 888" flashcard sets, I wanted to offer a comparison between the two.

Flashcards 888 are organized in the order of frequency of use of characters; Chinese in a Flash are arranged in the order of frequency and complexity. Someone learning Chinese language is more likely to encounter characters in the order presented in Chinese in a Flash cards.

Flashcards 888 are of a sturdier quality than Chinese in a Flash cards.

Both are approximately the same size.

Both have radicals mentioned. On Flashcards 888, radicals are provided in the upper right corner on the front of the card; on Chinese in a Flash cards, beside the radical is also noted the name of the character as well as character components.

On Flashcards 888, you'll also find a stroke order, helpful to know when you practice writing characters; Chinese in a Flash cards, do not provide a stroke order.

Both sets also mention several character combinations, together with their pronounciation in pinyin and the meaning in English.

Chinese in a Flash also provide a sample sentence where the particular character / word is used; Flashcards 888 don't.

Flashcards come in one set of 888 cards; Chinese in Flash come in two sets of 448 cards.

I am very happy with both sets and enjoy using them both.

Vol. 2 of Chinese in a Flash (flashcards) has a printing error. The top of the front of the cards is the same edge as the top of the back of the cards. This means you cannot "flip" the card by holding it on the side to read the back of the card. Vol. 1 of this set is printed correctly so you you can flip them by holding the side of the card. This makes it a real pain when trying to mix cards from both sets. Tuttle Publishing realizes this problem and corrected cards will be available the end of April 2006. Tuttle may be contacted for an excahnge if you already have the misprinted second set. Otherwise these cards have been useful to me when used with the asociated books in my study of Chinese characters.

I am learning Chinese & these flashcards are great! They are a very nice size to carry around, plus they have several different words listed at the bottom of the card that also use the character. They show the simplified & original character. The biggest plus for me is they show you the order in which to write the character (they only show order on the simplified character)! I would highly recommend these cards if you are learning Mandarin Chinese.

Volume 2 does not repeat words from Vol. 1, but just builds a bigger vocabulary. This is very helpful as you advance in learning Mandarin Chinese.

I liked the idea and the layout, unfortunatley, they have used a font which is incredibly difficult to read.

These cards most likely will be your second purchase in your study of written Chinese if you have previously purchased the 1st iteration of Tuttle cards. The character progression is thoughtful and gradual as the first set as you begin common words and progress to more difficult ones.

The cards are made of the same high-quality card-stock that the first set was made of that doesn't wear easily; I have carried the cards around in my pocket for months with a rubber-band around them without noticeable damage to the cards.

The cards do no come with a carrying case which would be beneficial to keep them organized. I found a small plastic case which fit the cards almost perfectly from another flashcard set that I had purchased; I cannot remember the name of the product as the plastic case is the only thing that has survived.

I recommend a thorough study of spoken Chinese before moving on to written as it will give you a better understanding of how the words that you are learning on the cards are used in context. The example sentences are great but are not all-inclusive of the situations in which certain words can be used.

A great product overall and I would highly recommend to any student of the Chinese language. The pinyin for pronunciation on these cards is for Mandarin Chinese but the meaning of many of the characters also reflects the Cantonese meaning as well (though the pinyin for that dialect is not included on this particular set of cards).

Happy Studying!
