Learn Chinese in China

  • Why you should look around

    Since 2003, Chinese-forums.com has been helping people learn Chinese faster and get to China sooner. Our members can recommend beginner textbooks, help you out with obscure classical vocabulary, and tell you where to get the best street food in Xi'an. And we're friendly about it too. 

    Have a look at what's going on, or search for something specific. We hope you'll join us. 

Flash Cards for David and Helen

Recommended Posts


Here are files in UTF8 text format for the vocabulary from

David and Helen in China, Phyllis Ni Zhang, Yuan-Yuan Meng, Donald K. Chang, and Irene C. Liu, Yale University Press; ISBN 0887102166(simplified), ISBN: 0887101909(traditional)

If you have a Palm with Plecodict and an SD card you can load these as flash cards. It works on my Palm TX. If for some reason you can't import flashcards from unicode txt file, the .pdb file version should be appearing soon on the plecodict flashcard site.

The files have pinyin and English definitions from the book.

For now, post corrections and typos on this thread.

One has to login to chinese-forums to see the link to the files and download them.
