Remembering Simplified Hanzi: Book 1--How Not to Forget the Meaning and Writing of Chinese Characters Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

At long last the approach that has helped thousands of learners memorize Japanese kanji has been adapted to help students with Chinese characters. Books 1 of Remembering Simplified Hanzi and Remembering Traditional Hanzi cover the writing and meaning of the 1,000 most commonly used characters in the Chinese writing system, plus another 500 that are best learned at an early stage. (Books 2 add another 1,500 characters for a total of 3,000.) Of critical importance to the approach found in these pages is the systematic arranging of characters in an order best suited to memorization. In the Chinese writing system, strokes and simple components are nested within relatively simple characters, which can, in turn, serve as parts of more complicated characters and so on. Taking advantage of this allows a logical ordering, making it possible for students to approach most new characters with prior knowledge that can greatly facilitate the learning process. Guidance and detailed instructions are provided along the way. Students are taught to employ imaginative memory to associate each character's component parts, or primitive elements, with one another and with a key word that has been carefully selected to represent an important meaning of the character.

Book News Annotation:

In the first of two volumes, Heisig (Nanzan Institute for Religion and Culture, Nagoya, Japan) and Richardson (world languages, Brigham Young U.-Hawaii) apply methods successfully used to teach Japanese characters in teaching beginning students of Chinese the simplified form and meaning of 1,500 characters that are commonly used or easy to learn early. A companion volume will do the same for another 1,500 characters. The textbooks do not consider pronunciation. Annotation ©2009 Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
