Here are some documents about Nantong dialect, but it's still difficult for Chinese in other areas. http://wapwenku.baidu.com/view/09e3c92aaaea998fcc220e42.html?ssid=0&from=1099b&uid=0&pu=usm@3,sz@1320_2001,ta@iphone_1_9.2_3_601&bd_page_type=1&baiduid=2B26F0FC87EAF856CC6D8FCB7EA56F60&tj=wenku_3_0_10_title#2

There are many online OCR input websites. For example: http://www.yibizi.com/html5/ (neat and fast, without ads, but seems only working inside China) I strongly suggest you install a client software rather than using a website because many websites are full of ads.

Have you had problems noticing the difference between "sheer" and "cheer", or "jeep" and "cheap"? If not, then your problem is solved.

My response may be opinion-based, but I'll provide it anyway because it may help you. Are you just too old to learn Chinese? I find it very hard to remember the characters. The way Chinese folks do it is through rote memorization. However, they have the added advantage of usually knowing the language before they begin writing. You probably don't. ...

I would highly recommend the “汉语教程“ or Hsk标准教程“. Or just go to google and look for : " hsk sample paper /hsk mock test". You will find plenty of pages that provide previous exam papers with the vocabulary list attached to them. I assume that you are preparing for the hsk3, which the vocab requirement is 600 words right? If I am right, and you prefer to ...

The best I know of is Chinese: A Comprehensive Grammar (Routledge Comprehensive Grammars) by Yip Po-Ching and Don Rimmington.

The three best options IMHO are: Nciku (the pioneer, still works on a webpage). Now called Line-dict. Google Translate App, as posted above. It recently bought nciku's technology, but the imput method is not as confortable, since your writing must be really fast for the software to pick it up. Pleco: my own personal choice. It is flexible, ...

Michaelyus's answer to a similar question (link in the comments above) is still very useful. A general resource that unfortunately may be hard to find now is the 現代方言音庫, a series published by the 上海教育出版社 in the mid 1990s. This series consisted of a thin booklet titled XX音檔 (usu 100-150 pages) and a good quality cassette for each dialect. The series ...
