Part 1- Introduction to Chinese Characters

[CC] English subtitles

All 100,000 Chinese characters are merely different combinations of 400 simple pictographs and ideographs (think Egyptian hieroglyphs). In order to rapidly learn Chinese characters and successfully retain them, the secret is to first thoroughly master these 400 basic pictographic components!

Our radical approach (部首, ha ha) to quickly mastering copious amounts of Chinese characters is this: Learn the basic pictographic components 幺 艹 白 木 before attempting to the learn the Chinese character 藥.

Consider for a moment that in chemistry you learn the basic elements of the periodic table before learning more complex compounds. Similarly, in phonetic languages like English you learn the basic phonetic symbols A B C before you learn a complex word like medicine. Our online curriculum utilizes this same logical building block methodology to learn Chinese characters.

Introduction to Chinese Characters (Very good video on Chinese characters)

Forget about the Western method to train your left and right brain! Just learn good old Chinese characters and you will develop a powerful, practical, and holistic brain which will offer countless benefits and opportunities for you in the 21th century.

NOTE: This video is part of a series on Exploring the Chinese Culture made by the Confucius Institute of Michigan State University. Since our great sage and ancestor Confucius did not selfishly claim any copyright to his work, so must the Descendants of the Dragon.

Cangjie (倉頡) was a legendary figure in ancient China (c. 2650 BC), an official historian of the Yellow Emperor and one of the inventors of Chinese characters. He had 4 eyes for careful observation of nature. Legend says when he and his team invented Chinese characters, it was so amazing that Heaven and Earth shook, Devils and Gods cried!

Chinese is the most advanced and only continuously used visual language in world history with 1.4 billion people in use today. It involves extensive visual and auditory processing which has been proven to lead to higher IQ. Professor John Zhang of the Psychology Department at The Chinese University of Hong Kong and his team have discovered a unique brain wave called N200 only shows up to readers of Chinese characters and does not exist in readers of alphabetic words. Written Chinese is vision-based while alphabetic scripts are audition-based. Every character is crystallized wisdom. Brain creates language, language shapes brain, brain shapes culture. Alphabetic scripts stimulate only the left brain, people using it is a half-brain, tend to be rational, analytical, fragmented, mechanistic, clear-cut of right or wrong. Written Chinese stimulate both hemispheres of the brain, people using it is a holistic-brain, tend to be right and wrong are itself hard to divide. Japanese have no-brain, Japanese collectivism: Kamikaze, have no sense of right and wrong.

2012年初,香港中文大學教授張學新,從腦科學和心理學的視角,發現漢字是獨一無二的拼義文字和視覺文字,因為只有在閱讀漢字時才出现獨特的N200腦電波,字母文字根本沒有。因此漢字不可能也絕不能拉丁化,如果拉丁化炎黃子孫的智慧一定受到毀滅性打擊!漢字能同時刺激左右腦,開發大腦,左腦主要負責語言、邏輯、分析等顯意識抽象思維,右腦負責圖形、直觀、綜合等潛意識具象思維,而且右腦是靈感和創造力的源泉,具有極高自主性和無限的圖像記憶功能,學好漢字和書法可以同時開發左右腦,而字母文字只能刺激左腦,所以全腦人玩漢字,半腦人玩字母,書聖王羲之、歐陽詢、顏真卿、柳公權等書法大家更不用說!隨著中華民族的偉大復興與科學技術的不斷發現應用,古老的、久違的漢字與聖賢的智慧,一定會在今後的高度數字化、物質化的時代重新彰顯出更廣的適應性和更靈的機動性!

漢字神威(正體字),大唐正音(閩南語),天字無雙,獨步宇宙!驚天地,泣鬼神,科學驚,西方嫉。文言連古今,漢字繫五洲,大道易我行,中華當復興,會當凌絕頂,一覽眾山小。

Stroke Order - there's a wrong way to write Chinese characters

There's a stroke-by-stroke way to write every Chinese character. Here's how I got used to hànzì and kanji stroke orders, and why even then they still threw a few punches.

Subscribe for language!

** Past viewers have objected to my use of historical gotchas and exceptions. If that's you, 02:49 is the perfect place to end the story. (You'll see me go from too hard to too easy!) Maybe skip to 04:52 to see the punching Hànzì. **

Forgive the mismatched audio. I rerecorded the intro.

Learning kanji and hànzì means writing the right strokes in the right order. As if there weren't enough to pay attention to...

At first, this seemed like the last straw. The moment I fully realized this was utterly unlike other writing systems.

Fortunately, there were real patterns here! Patterns you can get good mileage out of!

Even then, some characters still threw me for a loop. Like the different stroke orders between China and Japan. Or patterns that worked for one character but shifted when that character was part of a larger character. Or the first time I saw someone write cursive characters.

It's a fun skill.
