I love visually creative tools for learning Chinese, and these free BoPoMoFo (Zhuyin) flashcards fit right into that category. “What’s BoPoMoFo?” I can hear you shouting – Well, BoPoMoFo is the phonetic alphabet that is used in Taiwan in lieu of Pinyin and depending upon your choice of where to learn Chinese, or if you’re more interested in Traditional Chinese, it might be a viable alternative to the Pinyin system.
Each flashcard has been made by associating a Chinese word and related cartoon with a Zhuyin character from the pronunciation by integrating the Zhuyin right into the picture (that’s 3 levels of association!). The result is a set of flashcards that are visually stimulating and sure to aid in acquisition of the Zhuyin alphabet.
Here’s a few cards that I particularly like:
The creator of the Flashcards, Castle of Costa Mesa, has also posted a video on Youtube showing the flashcards, though there currently isn’t any audio on the video, which is unfortunate. Hopefully it’ll be added soon:
And if all that isn’t enough for you then Castle of Costa Mesa also offers the Zhuyin flashcards for download as Mnemonic Worksheets.
