Designed to start you on your journey into the world of Chinese characters, this beginner writing course is perfect for anyone with an interest in writing Chinese characters or for those of you taking the HSK exams looking for an engaging and fun way to get started with writing.
The challenges of writing in Chinese have been broken down into bitesized and easy to digest steps, beginning with mastering the basic strokes, then moving on to the fundamental writing rules before learning the most important radicals. It is a common misconception that Chinese characters are all pictographic. In fact nearly 80% of Chinese characters are pictophonetic which are a combination of a radical and a phonetic component. Being able to identify a radical of a character help you guess the meaning of a character.
You will also learn to write approximately 100 characters and unlock fascinating cultural and historical knowledge as our illustrations bring the world of Chinese characters to life. Our course uses an effective memory technique by giving meaning to each stroke of a Chinese character. We have created meaningful illustrations that will help you decode each character and anchor the shape of each stroke in your mind.
