Practicing on a Chinese keyboard?
Are there any Chinese keyboards on the web for me to practice my Chinese "writing" skills (more specifically, ones that you would recommend)? Does Chinese pod have a keyboard hiding around somewhere among its many options?
Any information would be much appreciated!
Thanks so much!

Hi Todd, you mean keyboards with Chinese radicals and strokes printed on the keys or any computer input methods?
I meant any computer input methods. I want to learn how to type the characters onto the computer and be able to write short messages/emails/etc. to people. Know of any good places to turn to?
Any help would be great!
Thanks so much,
Trying googling it. I don't know what computer system you have. For example, this is built into windows - just switch it on
Great. So as I known, most Chinese people use Pinyin input methods, such as Google Pinyin ( http://www.google.com/intl/zh-CN/ime/pinyin/index.html ）which I used a lot, and Sougou Pinyin ( http://pinyin.sogou.com/ ). If you've already familiar with Chinese radical and strokes, you can try Stroke input methods or Wubi input methods, which also need to memorise the key definitions.
Thanks Root. I just did a search on my tablet (HP Slate 7 2800-- Android version 4.1.1) and there was an option called "Bluetooth keyboard," which seemed promising. I'm unfortunately unable to access the internet at the moment (I'm in South Korea and need to purchase a router), but once I do, I'll tinker around with this a little more and see what I come up with.
Thanks again for the considerate reply.
