  1. If you can not view Chinese characters, you can learn how to by reading "How to Read Chinese on the Net" at http://chineseculture.about.com/library/weekly/aa101397.htm.

  2. Some of the sites need "RealPlayer" (http://www.real.com) to hear the pronunciation.

  3. When typing the sites, be aware that all letters are case sensitive. All the above addresses have been updated and accurate.

Some sites use simplified and others use traditional characters.
