Avoid Chinese Character Driving You Nuts

Recommended Posts

Is Chinese difficult to learn? 

We often hear quite a few people say:


“I want to learn Chinese, but the characters drive me nuts.”




Chinese characters are difficult for sure. Made up of strokes, Chinese characters is the morphemic recording morpheme and most of them indicate the meaning only. Apart from that, the writing system is different from alphabetic script which widely used by most nations.


But fortunately, living in the era of of information and technology, we don’t really need to write but type in daily life. Mobile phone, pad, laptop...... we type anytime,anywhere. That is, it would be great as long as you can type accurately!


There are lot’s of Chinese input method that could be your option. Type pinyin then choose the word you want. But here comes the question: What do you see after type “jixu” by Chinese input method on your mobile? And how do you identify the word which means “continue” among over 5 equally pronounced words






At this very moment we believe that you need a helper to choose for you. It’s not Google, and it’s not Pleco neither. It’s inefficiency to switch out of the message app, identify the correct character in Pleco or some other apps, then go back to the message app to finish your text. 


ICboard would definitely be the helper to assist you in improving speed and accuracy of your Chinese typing.

ICboard adds the “auxiliary code” after the pinyin to give people some hints, and assist you to narrow the range from the list which shows many different characters with same pronunciation then lock the target.


The auxiliary code is not all of ICboard.  It has other functions such as translate, Ch-En mixed input, gesture input, voice input etc. ICboard helps you type Chinese characters easier and learn more about Chinese!

Chinese is very interesting to learn, I think learning how to speak it is easier compared to learning how to write it. 

Yes. Chinese character is very hard to recognize and write, which is a huge obstacle in Chinese study for a learner.

Actually, that's the problem that we want to solve.
