Mastering Chinese Characters: A Modern Approach
As an innovative, alternative approach for Chinese language learners, the author's deconstruction and graphic interpretation of 300 Chinese characters of high frequency of use serve as one of the easiest ways to memorize Chinese characters. The illustration next to each Chinese character forms an imaginative association between each ancient Chinese pictogram and its modern meaning. The author drew on his long-term teaching experience at SOAS (School of Oriental and African Studies, University of London) and his book has proven very popular among Chinese language teachers as well as students. This bilingual Chinese-English book comes with a CD of mp3 files and helps learners remember characters by listening to and repeating catchphrases.
