Mandarin Chinese is an increasingly popular world language and object of study, and while there are numerous online character learning apps and flashcard systems, very little research has been done on inductive or autonomous learning in the realm of collocation acquisition. I propose a new Chinese implementation of a trusted corpus-based platform, currently available for English and several other languages, accompanied and enhanced by an adaptive approach to Chinese segmentation approach, whereby different ways of carving up a given sentence are selectively displayed to the learner.
