Description

Some of the very first Chinese characters foreigners encounter upon arriving in the People's Republic of China are those found on license plates. This app helps to make sense of those characters, and in doing so help to make sense of the world around you.

Like in many countries, Chinese license plates contain a character that indicates where that vehicle is from. For instance, just was in the United States a tag with the letters 'FL' indicates a vehicle from Florida, in China a tag with the character '沪' indicates a vehicle from Shanghai.

However, unlike in many other countries, these abbreviations are used extensively in the language particularly in the written language to stand in for the region's name. Thus, for students of Mandarin, this app also provides the pinyin for each region and its abbreviation, as well as audio, spoken by a native speaker of Mandarin, of the same, providing a quick reference for students to get a grasp on Chinese province and region names and their official abbreviations.
