"Thank you for the great software! It makes learning
Chinese an awesome experience!"
"I have let my reading skills lapse since the last time I was in China,
mainly because I can't enjoy reading when I have to stop to look up characters.
Clavis Sinica takes the dictionary-induced eyestrain and boredom out of reading Chinese;
it's made it much easier for me to read online news articles,
and has really improved my reading."
—Eric Hayot, State College, PA
"My compliments to you for offering a product of such high quality
and relevence for Americans now and in the foreseeable future."
—David Stanley, M.D.
"I have been using the program for about 5 months now and
I have moved from knowing a little over 2,000 characters to consistently
scoring 3,000 or more on your on-line character test. More importantly
I have finally moved from reading intermediate texts to on-line news
I find on the WWW. Your program has turned out to be an amazing aid.
I am now a huge fan."
"It's a great program, containing just about every
option that a student could want. Steve Coffin"
"I received my copy of Clavis Sinica already,
and after looking at it must say that it is as good as I hoped:
a very useful piece of software at a very affordable price.
Thank you again for your quick service and this fine learning tool."
