A Chinese Idiom A Day

Laurel's picture

This is a very simple but very nice little website: http://www.oneaday.org/

It shows a different Chinese idiom every day, with characters (traditional or simplified), pronunciation, and very fluent English translations. Many traditional four-character chengyu, as well as other useful classical and vernacular expressions. You can also search or browse the archive for idioms from previous days. Oneaday can be subscribed to as an RSS feed, as well.

One of my favorites from the site:
