Character flashcards

 

Dear readers and Mandarin learners,

No matter how many Chinese words and phrases you remember, the inability to recognise characters will set firm limits on your progression, as each one can have a variety of meanings or functions, and you can truly grasp the unique way characters are used together through direct practice.

Based on my own personal experience, the first few hundred characters are the most challenging, but you will discover that as you learn more, they become ever easier to memorise as you begin to see the patterns, both in structure and sometimes in pronunciation.

It’s never too late to learn Chinese, and there’s no time like the present. Whether you purchase these amazing flashcard packs for young children to get a head-start, or as a personal study aid to master those first few hundred characters, you will find practising with the additional study aids great fun, and you’ll amaze yourself at how many of these beautiful characters you will successfully learn, despite their undeserved reputation for difficulty.

You can do it!
