Not everything I write about learning Chinese ends up here on Hacking Chinese. Some things will be available later as Hacking Chinese articles or projects, but much is written for other websites.

Below, I have listed articles written by me but published elsewhere before the start of July. I have also updated my bibliography if you want more things to read.

Various articles about Mandarin on About.com
June, 2015 – About.com
These articles were all published on About.com through my role as Mandarin expert writer there:

  1. How to improve your Chinese during the summer vacation: Something is always better than nothing
  2. Learning Chinese with MDBG: A user-friendly free online dictionary
  3. Learning Chinese with Skritter: The best app for learning to write Chinese characters

  9. Using pop-up dictionaries to learn Chinese: How and why browser extensions make learning easier

That’s it for now! I will keep posting one article round-up every month, collecting the articles from the previous months. If you like Hacking Chinese or what I’m writing in general, the best thing you can do is to share! Donations are also more than welcome. If you want to read more about my different roles on Skritter and About.com, please read the first monthly round-up. If you want to view all articles written by me but published elsewhere, check my bibliography page.
