Three improvements in this new version of Easy Hanzi, all of them were kindly suggested by Marjolein Hoekstra from Cleverclogs:
- There is now an option to colorize the pinyin depending on the tone. This a useful improvement to make it easier to remember pinyin and to see at a glance what tone(s) a word is using. The option is turned on by default but you can switch it off in the options.
- The MCQ session now offers slightly smarter choices for pinyin and simplified/traditional characters. For pinyin, the software will propose answers that use the same pinyin but with different tones, thus “forcing” you to think through what tone should be used.
- For simplified/traditional characters, Easy Hanzi will show characters that share the same radical or that share the same non-radical part. This change also make the MCQ more challenging since it makes you think about the exact shape of the character.
A few more changes are included in this release, including keyboard shortcuts (A, B, C) for the MCQ session and a few bug fixes. The full changelog is available there:
