Character Learning System

Struggle in memorizing Chinese characters? 

Here’s some tips —

1) INPUT – pick specific word and learn the Chinese character

2) PROCESSING – break it down into its component parts. Use this individual components of a character to build a “story” around the character.

3) REVIEW – write it down and use flashcards to review. If learned correctly, move to USAGE. However, if the Chinese characters you learned is wrong, you can use radical to help memorize the Chinese character.

4) USAGE –  use the learned words often.

Chinese family tree

Grade 11 Mandarin ab initio class created this chart during class discussion —

image

Every relative in the Chinese family tree has a specific term/name depending if they are related to your father or your mother, whether they are older or younger, and whether they are related by blood or marriage.  So two sets of cousins might refer to their grandmother in different ways, even though they are actually talking about the same person.
