"Hello Roger, I would be interested, but have not been able to find your site..  I try to do something everyday, but it is not consistent time.  A link to your site along with the pass word would be very helpful. Thank you."

"Hello Roger, I also would be interested and I just joined Khan Academy, but I can not find your course. For me it would be good once a week for about an hour. What is in your mind? Looking forward to hear from you kind regards Billy"

"Hey Tyson, I definitely agree: Skritter is actually a steal for what you get.  For a few years, I thought it was just more than I wanted to pay so I just kept putting it off.  Now that I subscribe, I could kick myself for not taking the…"

"My recommendation is Heisig "Remembering the [Traditional/Simplified] Hanzi" plus Skritter. When people say Skritter is not cheap, I feel like it's a question of your learning budget.  Each month Skritter costs ($15.99) less…"

Roger Y Dunn replied to Teddy's discussion Just wondering about the Tones.
"tone combinations is key.  there is really no point in practicing one-syllable tone character/words.  Always better in pairs (75%+ of all words are 2-character words).  Then the next step is combining words to other words.…"
