Learn to read and remember Chinese characters, step 5
With over 1 billion users, Chinese is the most widely spoken language in the world. Add to that the importance of China in the world economy and you end up with a situation where knowing Chinese gives you a tremendous advantage.
This fifth volume follows the comprehensive, fun and pragmatic Chinese Blockbuster approach designed to teach you:
- How to recall the building blocks that compose both forms of a Chinese character (simplified and traditional)
- How to remember the various definitions of a character
- How to memorize the various pronunciations of a character in Mandarin
- Additional facts concerning the character, such as its frequency of use, its etymology, or its ancient meanings and shapes
The details of each character are imprinted in your brain by way of funny, dramatic or true stories, allowing you to remember all aspects of a specific character in one fell swoop. You will effectively learn to recognize and pronounce all the Chinese characters you are bound to see, while being entertained!
The Chinese Blockbuster Series goes beyond the ‘top few Chinese characters you need to know to get by,’ as people too often realize that they don’t get anywhere with such a limited number of characters. The Chinese Blockbuster Series is comprehensive and covers what is necessary for you to reach reading fluency in modern Chinese.
