The perfect tool for learning Chinese characters
When starting to learn how to read and write Chinese, it is always a challenge for students to learn how to pronounce the characters because Chinese characters do not spell out their pronunciations as English words do.
To help students learn how to pronounce Chinese characters, many books add an additional line of pinyin script next to the characters. Students read pinyin to learn the sounds of characters. It helps some, but also creates some problems.
Pinyin is an approximation of how Chinese characters are pronounced. It works the best when individual characters are introduced. When characters are standing alone, we can read them aloud in their full, complete sounds as spelled out by pinyin. When characters are used in sentences and narratives, their pronunciations are often influenced by surrounding characters and go through subtle changes, both in tones and sounds. Pinyin can not reflect these subtle changes.
Recognising the limitation of pinyin, we believe that the best way for students to learn how to pronounce Chinese characters, not only when characters are standing alone but also when they are in connection with other characters, is to have students exposed to the native Chinese voicing when they are seeing the characters.
Chinese Learning Pen is such a perfect tool to help students quickly establish the connections between the sounds of Chinese characters and the visual images. With a touch of the Pen, students can listen to any part of the text at will and at ease, and train their ears to adapt to the subtle variations when native Chinese speakers are speaking.
MSL Master is always looking for new ways to improve the learning environment of Chinese learners. And we were excited when we discovered a special technology which works with traditional paper books and gives ordinary book pages additional sound features.
With the help of this wonderful technology, we’re able to reproduce the Chinese Reading and Writing books with high quality sound integrated into the pages. This new feature helps students accelerate their Chinese character recognitions, improve their listening abilities, and boost their Chinese pronunciations.
Chinese Learning Pen helps students make tremendous progress rapidly.
Chinese Learning Pen is a small device which can be easily carried. Its well-designed body offers a firm grip.
Both built-in speaker and headphone jack are available.
Long Battery Life
When fully charged, the Pen can stay on for up to five hours.
