I've been studying Chinese part-time for a few years. I wish I had more time to study, but I also wish for a way to learn it faster.

comment Is there on-line Corpus for Chinese language?
The primary disadvantage of the Google approach is that they don't have a search API and actively detect and block scraping. It would be suitable for any human needs, but probably not for what drobnbobn is after.

comment Difference between the Advantages and disadvantages of learning Mandarin Chinese and Taiwanese Hokkien for visiting Taiwan
For a beginner, I would say that just the fact that some of the characters are shared (even though Hokkien has some of its own) will provide a lot of help with learning one once you already know some of the other.
