||Learning a logograph writing system like Mandarin requires a completely
different set of metalinguistic knowledge than learning English and Malay
language which share the same writing system, alphabetical writing system.
Mandarin writing system does not allow deconstruction of letters to form
different syllabus or phonemes like in English and Malay language. In
Mandarin, a simple change of a stroke in a word might change the word and
its meaning entirely. Thus, learning to write Mandarin correctly could be the
toughest task in Mandarin learning. To ease this problem, Writing Hanzi (WZ)
provides a simple and fun self-directed learning digital platform to allow
learners to practice Mandarin writing. The added advantage of the app is to
be able to make complicated writing strokes become easy and more
comprehensible for learners to digest. Apart from that, it also enhances their
accuracy in stroke order writing, the most crucial unit in Mandarin writing and
increases their vocabulary knowledge for better acquisition of Mandarin.
