Although more people are studying the Chinese language than ever before, others are still wary of starting because they believe, "it's too difficult." But A Chinese Character A Day, Volume 2 will show beginner–intermediate students that learning Mandarin Chinese characters is highly manageable when absorbed in small doses. It will help intermediate and advanced Chinese learners review and improve upon their past studies and practice written Chinese every day. Chinese characters (hanzi) are fascinating pictographic symbols that each have a specific meaning. After a few weeks of gradual progress your ability to read Chinese, write Chinese and pronounce Chinese will grow tremendously.
This calendar like desk companion starts with the most basic Chinese characters and builds upon itself, one day at a time. For easy reference and review, a booklet listing the 365 Chinese characters is included. Each of the 365 pages contain these six components:
- The featured Chinese character.
- The English meaning.
- The pronunciation written in romanized Chinese (hanyu pinyin).
- Related compounds with their meanings and pronunciations.
- Stroke–order diagrams.
- 28 practice squares.
