Chinese fonts! Help!


#1

Hi @YuQinCai, @Constance_Fang @Fiona and the ChinesePod team, my question is this:

I have an odd problem- my brain doesn’t always recognize the same characters in different fonts- think the difference between the chunkier standard type and the more script-like font. Anyone have any downloadable script font suggestions? I could make my own flashcards out of them and maybe not embarrass myself when I can’t seem to recognize characters I know!

Hi,

That is not odd, I think we almost all have to deal with that.:thinking:
Take a look at this website. So many fonts! I personally like the Senty Pea font very well.

Note; when you are reading and learning characters always try to look for the radicals. It helps you allot to recognise characters and also give you a clue about the meaning and sound.
