Skritter is great for learning characters and words, but it can't teach you Chinese by itself. You'll need speaking and listening practice, too. Ideally, your life is full of Chinese-speaking people with whom you can practice. Or perhaps you are taking a Chinese class from a good teacher. If not, or if you want more practice, here are some resources that we think are useful.
