OCRAT.COM SITE MIRROR
Sometime during the first half of 2005 Ocrat.com, a helpful site for learning
the Chinese language, went down and was replaced with the message "OCRAT.COM
is under construction. This site does not exist at this time".
The site provided stroke order diagrams for Chinese characters, Voice of
America radio broadcasts in Chinese and English, pronunciation help, and many
other helpful resources. Because I thought that the site was so useful and
it is a shame to see such a good site go offline, I want to bring back the
content of the Ocrat site.
In late 2005 I downloaded the content from Archive.org and started re-hosting the
resources that were available. I also restored some content that wasn't
archived. See below for a timeline.
