The Wedge:

怎样开始学中文读写?
How to Start Learning Written Chinese?
我们建议先学 CCA 汉字字母表,接着学 META 偏旁部首 和 STEM 字干。此为中文读写预读阶段,然后才进入中 文认读和理解的学习。此准备过程类似于英文读写学习 的早期字母和拼音阶段。
We suggest starting from Chinese Character Alphabet, to META Radicals, STEM Characters for Chinese reading preparation, then to learn to read Chinese, in which is an unconventional method akin to the beginning stage of English learning pathway.

 

STEP 1:CCA 汉字字母表

Q: What is Chinese Character Alphabet?
A: Chinese Character Alphabet (CCA) is the 6 basic stroke drawings and their transformed drawings.

01

Below are the 6 Basic Strokes

02

You can sing it to memorise the 6 Basic Strokes easily

03

STEP 2:META 偏旁部首 

Q: What is META Radicals?
A: META Radicals are a group of selected radicals or components which are composed for the most frequently used Chinese characters.
Q: Total beginners, how many META Radicals should be suggested to learn?
A: For easier adopting the written Chinese we believe learning around 30 Meta Radicals will be enough for beginners.
Drill:Can you find which CCA strokes made up the META Radicals below?

STEP 3:STEM 汉字

Q: What is STEM Chinese Character?
A: STEM Characters are a group of selected basic characters which are the most fundamental Chinese characters. Besides of that, they are also frequently used to compose for the complicated characters.
Q: To engage learning to read Chinese, how many STEM Characters should be suggested to learn?
A: To engage learning to read, we suggest the learners should acquire around 50 STEM Characters minimum.

Conclusion:

一个偏旁跟它意思一样的汉字,它们二个的样子有时很不同, 但大多数还是很相似的。
When a Radical indicates the meaning it is the same as the meaning a Character brought, their symbols could be very similar while sometimes are very different.
