The purpose of this research is to facilitate the learning of Chinese characters for beginners through designing and implementing a computer-assisted-learning system on a PC. With the use of animation, graphics and sound, the origin, written form, pronunciation and usage of Chinese characters are introduced to the user. Moreover, understanding of these concepts is deepened by means of demonstration and practice. To help to enlarge the user's vocabulary, two games of building characters are provided.
