Memorize China Map
What you'll learn
- Learn to Draw the map of China and memorize all its states
- Clearly see the location of the three largest states of China on the northern and western borders
- Learn to distinguish between similar sounding names of the Chinese states in a unique method
- Distinguish between the coastal states in the East & South China and the landlocked states
- Learn about the largest cities of China and how they are clustered in a few locations
- No prerequisites. The learner only needs to be keen to know about the States of China and where they are placed in the map. You will find all the answers in this course.
This course teaches you how to draw the map of China from memory and draw the outlines of all the states and learn a mnemonic system to remember the exact loaction of each state. There are 27 states in all along with four Megacities, Tianjin, Beijing, Shanghai and Chongqing and two Special Administrative Zones viz. Hong Kong and Macau. I show you how to locate all of them.
We follow the same system as I have used in my other map courses like Memorize World Map. We subdivide the country outline into regions by using simple straight lines. China has been divided into the Three Largest States first, of Xinjiang, Tibet & Inner Mongolia: these states had been annexed into China historically many years ago. The rest of mainland China has been divided into the three states in the NorthEastern part, namely, Heilongjiang, Jilin & Liaoning. Then we have the Eastern Seaboard with four states and three southern states.
We have devised a creative mnemonic system where we have clubbed together similar sounding names of the states so as to help you locate them on the map quickly and unerringly.
Then we see two landlocked states on the eastern side followed by four more similar sounding states known as Hebei, Henan, Hubei, Hunan. Then we have six more landlocked states, one large state in the middle of China called Qinghai, and finally, an island state called Hainan. It is important to mention here that one more island, Taiwan, is claimed by China as one of their states, but the fact remains that China has no administrative control over Taiwan, which is like an independent country for all practical purposes.
Apart from these 27 states, there are four large megacities which are like states themselves, namely, Beijing, Tianjin, Shanghai and Chongqing and we show you their exact locations on the map. Further, there are the two last cities known as Special Administrative Zones, being Hong Kong and Macau.
Once you complete the course and do the hands on drawing yourselves, you ought to be able to locate any state of China on your own.
Who this course is for:
- anyone who is interested in World Geography, specifically in China.
My name is Siddhartha Sinha. I have studied in two premier institues of India, the IIT & the IIM. I am interested in subjects like Maths, Physics, Metaphysics, Music, Maps, Chess and many others. Creativity techniques fascinate me and I have used them throughout, for developing out of the box solutions for complex problems. I feel an implicit need to simplify the complex.
Besides having simplified the learning of the World Map, I am presently developing a learning methodology for students preparing for IIT Entrance Test for Maths, one of the toughest exams in the world, at the pre-engineering level.
I have also written and published two Science Fiction novels in 2019, called Mission: Utopia and Mission: Upend, wherein I decode the Matrix of our World and offer salubrious solutions.
I have a loving and indulgent wife, and two wonderful college going children. I am blessed to be in this world with its infinite bounties and seek to sensitize others to partake of this infinity.
