Q: A screensaver comes on suddenly when I play the Chinese Characters Alive! Evolutions program. What should I do?

Windows 2000 or Windows XP users:

Q: I have already learned all of the Chinese characters in your program, but I need to know more in order to read a newspaper. What should I do next?

A: We will be releasing new programs in 2008. However, our program also promotes self-study. Many users tell us that they recognize the simple characters in the program as parts of more complicated characters. Understanding the character parts is often useful for learning new whole characters.
