Wean yourself from pinyin with PinWean


Recommended Posts

I made a bookmarklet that (supposedly) will work with any browser. Check it out here: pinwean.com


It lets you click a Chinese word to see the pinyin and click again to see the definition. It keeps track of the words you know and don't know. It is based of my old Slowmersion project, but I like it better because I don't have to copy and paste Chinese text into the tool. I just go to any* Chinese web page and click the bookmark. It then processes without leaving the page.


* Sometimes it doesn't work on a page, for example Chinese google news, due to the page's security settings. In that case I paste the url into ProxySite.com and then click the PinWean bookmarklet.
