Building on the success of Volume 1, A Chinese Character A Day Practice
Pad Volume 2 further extends and consolidates the difficult task of
memorizing hundreds of unfamiliar Chinese characters. Students can master
one character a day by spending only a few minutes of practice time writing
it. Designed in the form of a numbered tear-sheet and packaged as a
convenient memo block, there are 365 sheets for a year’s worth of practice.

Better than you think, January 14, 2005
This is not a calendar going by month and day, but lists the day of
the year as a number (1-365). Notice on the package it IS listed as a
"Practice Pad" and not as a calendar at all. I'd like to give it 4.5
stars, if I could; I only wish it came with a stand. I found the
characters helpful. The stroke order is given, along with three chances
to trace the character and 25 more chances to write it yourself without
the tracing. It gives the simplified form of the character, but also the
traditional form, if available. The box contains a "handout" with
pronounciation helps. I have this calendar at work, and I work on the "charcater
of the day" before checking my email! 8-)

Nice introduction to Chinese Charcters but NOT a Calendar,
January 13, 2005
First of all this item is not a Calendar. While the pages are listed
as "Day 1, Day 2, ..." and etc. there are no dates. However, it does
have a good selection of words appropriate for the beginning Chinese
student. However there is no indication of stroke orders, which is
limits this product's use. In the end you're probably better off buying
a real character book and doing the "one a day" on your own.
