Judging from my personal experience (I do translation for a living), the English and Chinese versions of a text have a word count ratio of about 2:3. That is, if the English version has 1000 words, the Chinese version will usually have about 1500 characters. However, the Chinese version usually takes up less space. In Microsoft Word, with the same font ...

MDBG has stroke animations for all the characters, and highlights the radical, but I don't think you can print it out. That said, it's available online, for free, so it gets points for accessibility.

For modern Chinese, 下巴 is more commonly used in the daily life for the meaning of jaw or chin. Whereas 頜 is often used in medical words, like 下頜骨. In Ancient Chinese, 頜 is more common. 頷、頤,頜也。南楚謂之頷,秦晉謂之頜。頤,其通語也。――《方言》 ref: http://baike.baidu.com/view/269020.htm

Yes. They are the same. They are both for shampoo. Conditioner is 护发素。 Conditioner is not intended for cleaning hair so it is not related to 洗 or any character with a similar meaning. PS, If you want, you can even create your own word for shampoo as long as it makes some sense. For example, you can say 洁发剂, which you can't find in any formal dictionary. ...

For your purpose, instead of learning from a huge list of word pairs, you can use OpenCC. It allows you to convert between simplified and traditional Chinese. One big advantage of learning with this tool is that you can also learn different word-choices among the Chinese-speaking communities, e.g. Taiwan, Hong Kong, Mainland China.
