http://www.chineselingq.com/
First of all, the name itself (which is pronounced Chinese Link) needs a little explaining. The first part, “Chinese”, is fairly obvious since we teach Chinese. LingQ is the name of our online learning system which you can find at LingQ.com. At LingQ you’ll study many different languages in a fun, community atmosphere. The “Ling” in LingQ comes from TheLinguist.com the people behind LingQ. Lastly, the “Q” is important because it forms the speech bubble in our logo and throughout our site and because it makes “lingq” sound like “link” (we think!) which is what our system does for you.


http://www.archchinese.com/

"These pages hope to provide tools to assist people in learning and using the beautiful Chinese language. From the novice Chinese language student to the advanced programmer, I hope there is something here for everyone. Rather than being a Chinese language course, it provides tools to people who are already studying and using Chinese."


http://www.ironfrost.co.uk/flashcards/
The basic principle is fairly simple - the program shows a word in one language (either English or Chinese), then displays the pinyin (Chinese pronunciation) of the word and finally gives the word in the other language. You can choose whether to go from English to Chinese or from Chinese to English, and also other options like whether to view words in order or in a random order, and whether or not to remove cards after a certain number of successful answers.


http://www.zhongwen.com/
Zhongwen.com contains the complete text of Amazon's (sometimes) best-selling and (frequently) best-reviewed : Chinese Characters: A Genealogy and Dictionary using my character tree system. Distributed by Yale Univ. Press.
Alone among modern languages, Chinese integrates both meaning and pronunciation information in its characters. Zhongwen.com deciphers this rich information to help students understand, appreciate and remember Chinese characters. This web site and its associated printed dictionary present a series of zipu or 'character genealogies' which show graphically the close interconnections between over 4000 characters according to the Shuowen Jiezi and subsequent research by traditional etymologists.
