This tool allows you to create your own custom fill-in-the-blank Chinese worksheets for classroom and homework use. Students must select the best words from the word bank to fill the blanks in the sentences. On these worksheets, each Chinese sentence can have optional hints in Pinyin, English, or both.

Note you need to enclose the Chinese characters or words in parentheses () that you'd like left out.

Note that you do not need to provide English or Pinyin for each sentence or phrase if you do not want the worksheets to show English or Pinyin hints. However, if you want to save the sentence or phrase list to the server so that it can be used in other tools, such as Chinese Sentence Scramble Creator, it is a good idea to fill out the English definition and Pinyin as well.

To create a worksheet:
  1. Enter the title of the new worksheet, such as Chinese Homework #1. The title will be shown at the top of the generated worksheets. The title is required to save the list to the server for future use.
  2. Enter Chinese sentences and enclose the Chinese words that you’d like to leave out in parentheses (). For example, In the sentence “我喜欢(跑步)和打篮球,” the phrase “跑步” would be left out. The words enclosed in parentheses will be replaced by blank spaces and included in the word bank.
  3. Instead of entering Chinese sentences, you can also enter Chinese words and enclose the words in parentheses. For example, (图书馆).
  4. Optionally, you can enter the English and Pinyin translations of the sentence. Click the Pinyin button to add Pinyin automatically. In the case that there are multiple pronunciations for a particular character, the system will attempt to use the right one based on its context. In some cases, the user may have to edit it themselves. Do not use punctuation marks in the Pinyin input box. Note that Pinyin must be entered with tone numbers, rather than tone marks. The system will convert them to tone marks when the worksheet is generated. In addition, the Pinyin syllables must be separated by a blank space. For example, for the Chinese phrase “你去哪儿?”, the Pinyin must be entered as “ni3 qu4 na3 er2.” Use v for ü, for example, lv3 for lǚ, and number 5 for the neutral tone, e.g. ma5 (吗).
  5. Click the Add Rows button to add more rows. Empty rows will be ignored on the generated worksheet PDF.
  6. Optionally, you can change the default worksheet settings. The settings are self-explanatory.
  7. Click the Print button to generate the worksheets.
  8. You can click the Save to Server button to save the sentence or phrase list to the server for future use or to use it in a different tool.
Instead of creating a new list to generate a worksheet, you can simply load a pre-made sentence list or a list created by other members to generate the worksheet.

Note that this site uses a pop-up window to display the generated worksheet. If your browser is configured to block pop-ups, you will need to allow this site to open pop-ups.
