Hey there Skritizens

We have lots of updates to share this month.

Let's start things off by promoting a new vocabulary challenge by Hacking Chinese to kickstart your learning. Sign up for the challenge here, set yourself a daily goal, and then start using Skritter to get closer to achieving your goal. The top users at the end of the month will be eligible for 6-months of Skritter, so check out the full video and instructions here.

There is also a big app update inbound - 3.5.0. First off, there is a new setting that enables stylus support for pressure-sensitive devices to make your hand-writing that much more realistic. We recommend you give it a try and let us know how you find it.

The next big thing is a brand new in-app video course...

In-app videos have been around for a while, but this update takes them to a new level! For the first time ever, Skritter is now offering a 25-episode video course right inside the mobile app. Study along with Iona 老师 and learn 25 amazing animal idioms. Each episode breaks down the contained characters, gives common examples of the idiom, as well as some amazing art. 

This is only the beginning of what will be offered inside the app in the future, and we can't wait to bring out more structured content soon!

Continue reading to see some of the highlights from last month.

Happy studying.
