谢谢!:)

Not sure how good it is overall, but I have been using this. I like the fact that it routinely pulls up several options for a word, which indicates a certain level of accuracy to me.

well...I'll have to check these site out :o

and it would be great if those who are more fluent in the language, can somehow work into the game to help those who are still learning the language.... :)

May I know what you mean by people who are more fluent working into the game? ^_^" thanks!

I think the best dictionary is still a thick heavy paper one. Used to strain my arms while lugging them to examinations, but they helped me spot lots of errors :P

hmm...I guess what I'm trying to say is, some people play a Chinese character so they can practice Chinese... so those who knows Chinese better, can try to help those people out, but make it as part of their game, or their character? hmm..does that make sense? :o

Here are my favourites - the ones I use regularly:

Chinese to PinYin:

ChinesePod: (learn Chinese) - all the important stuff is free
http://www.chinesepod.com/

CriEnglish.com: (learn Chinese) - free
http://en.chinabroadcast.cn/chinese/

I often use the Chinese-English Online Dictionary already mentioned in the first post. Does anyone know of any sites that can explain the stroke order of characters?

I have been happy with this one after Mandarin Planet went offline.

It made me sad when mandarin planet went down...

I use for Cantonese:

Mandarin:
http://humanum.arts.cuhk.edu.hk/Lexis/Lindict/ - more like a traditional Chinese dictionary
http://www.chinese-tools.com

For FireFox user:
I'm currently using this input tool called FireInput which can be found on the add-ons section.
Also, using this dictionary thing where you highlight a Chinese word and it translates for you, dictcn.
