There is lots of useful information here for learning Chinese.
My native language is Vietnamese. I have to study English at school but I also like Chinese very much. So I had to choose dictionaries with Vietnamese, Chinese and English to learn. Luckily, I found a Hanzii dictionary that can translate Chinese into many different languages.
With Chinese speaking and listening practice, Hello Talk is very good. But it’s good for people who are learning English, Japanese, … and I find it difficult to find Chinese people to practice on Hello talk.
