I am trying to learn Mandarin, and until I came across this site:

http://www.yellowbridge.com/chinese/chinese-dictionary.php

I was having problems. It has lovely stroke order animations and clicking on the speech bubble on the page should also show you how to pronounce the word you are looking up.

It does this happily both in Firefox and Chrome on my Windows computer but when I try to do it on my Ubuntu I get no sound and no animation. Any suggestions?

Sorry, I put the wrong link in. Try the one I changed it to and type a word like 'thousand' in the English - Chinese entry.
