Learn to read Chinese … with ease! | ShaoLan



For foreigners, learning to speak Chinese is a hard task. But learning to read the beautiful, often complex characters of the Chinese written language may be less difficult. ShaoLan walks through a simple lesson in recognizing the ideas behind the characters and their meaning — building from a few simple forms to more complex concepts. Call it Chineasy.

  1. I'm Chinese, but I don't mean to offend her but, I'm confused. And I thought 門is door in traditional Chinese, in simplified Chinese this character

    门 is door.

  2. lmao that kinda trick works for like the 50 first words, then you done and gotta suffer the 5000 next

  3. characters aren't the hard part of chinese, it's the cultural idiom embedded within everything about the language. I can know the meaning behind every character in a sentence and still not have a clue what it's trying to convey. I would say I'm dumb but I've never had this problem with the other languages I've learned or tried to

  4. In most cultures, Sun would be circle & small lines around it but in Chinese script its coming out of window. Very different way of codifying meaning in shapes

  5. Симпатичная китаянка с некороткими ногами – уже прерасно!

  6. In fact, I think some of the explanations are far-fetched. such as 東 meaning east, if the window towards west, this character can also mean west as well.

  7. There is REALLY useful Udemy course for beginners “Chinese Mandaring Language for Beginners: Make Big Progress“
