Cultures have evolved differently throughout the years and this perfectly reflects in behaviors, appearance, lifestyle and even characters used to write. A suitable example is Chinese language, with characters being amongst the most difficult to decipher for foreigners. Luckily, applications like Chinese Writing Master Teacher's Edition are here to help just with what the name suggests.

Upon launch, the application brings up a pretty compact main window that stores all features. You can make the window bigger through a dedicated button, but until you reach the maximum size you won't be able to reduce it. There's an interactive preview section that displays a big picture of the selected character, as well as several controls regarding playback, color and line styles.

The overall process is simple enough, that is if you get the hang of it. A small input field is used to insert characters, with the workspace being automatically updated. By default, supported characters are enhanced with an animation that displays how to properly write characters.

You can fully interact with strokes. These can be moved around if you consider it makes more sense, as well as modify shape through end and middle anchor points. Regardless of your changes, the animation still functions, which is a plus for practicality.

Every new change brought to the design can be changed as a custom character. You can also generate a short GIF animation with custom values for speed and pause between strokes. There's also the possibility to highlight specific lines and use different colors.

Sadly, there's no implemented library to easily select characters so you need to copy them from an external source. Nor is there a dictionary or at least an equivalent for Latin characters.

Taking everything into consideration, we can say that Chinese Writing Master Teacher's Edition is a simple but powerful utility you can use to learn how to properly write Chinese characters. Although it feels a little rough around the edges and character input is a little odd, it makes for a practical application suited for anyone that's willing to learn.
