A new approach to
writing & learning hundreds of Chinese characters within hours
Generations of students have experienced many months of frustrating learning efforts caused by
poor language learning methodology. A new mind blowing learning technology introduced in this
course book will revolutionize the access to the Chinese and Japanese languages. Writing and
memorizing of Chinese characters can now easily be done.
Chinese characters (Hanzi) - also used in the Japanese language (Kanji) - are arranged by their
'looks' (shape) instead of their meanings. Small groups of five similar characters each will help
you to save precious time exercising writing and reading. Learning speed will be improved by
creating a solid base of at least 333 Hanzi just within hours. And this will boost your motivation
to learn the Chinese language.
Get ready for the Asian Century.
Please refer to www.Hanzi-Sudoku.com for free Chinese & Japanese related language learning
materials like crossword puzzles or Sudoku with Chinese characters.
We are looking for Chinese language related webmasters to arrange other language versions of this eBook (up to
50/50 royalties split) at Lulu.com. Please contact us: Translation (at) Hanzi-Sudoku.com

Many years of educati onal research unvei l ed a stunni ng fact: Chi nese characters are tradi ti onal l y
i ntroduced by thei r contextual meani ngs i nstead of thei r shape. And thi s consi derabl y sl owed down the
l anguage acqui si ti on process. Thi s course book offers a new approach to wri ti ng and l earni ng Chi nese
characters ( Hanzi i n the Chi nese l anguage, Kanj i i n the Japanese l anguage) .
By arrangi ng the Hanzi i n smal l groups of si mi l ar shape on traci ng sheets your l earni ng performance wi l l be
i ncreased. Our brai n real l y l oves motori c rei nforcement whi l e l earni ng through wri ti ng practi ce. Li ttl e
numbers attached to some strokes are expl ai ni ng the correct stroke order and wri ti ng di recti on.
I n contrast to al l other educati onal resources the numbers wi l l onl y be di spl ayed where necessary as your
feel i ng of the correct wri ti ng and stroke order wi l l grow from page to page.
Readi ngs ( or pronunci ati on) are gi ven i n Mandari n romani zati on ( Pi nyi n) . Meani ngs of each Chi nese
character shoul d be regarded as a descri pti on of a pi cture, as Hanzi are pi ctograms. Thi s wi l l hel p you to
get a feel i ng of each character. Don' t l earn the Hanzi by heart, feel & understand them as you woul d do
wi th other pi ctures and photos, too.
I f you are total l y new to the Chi nese l anguage, pl ease make use of addi ti onal resources and concentrate on
wri ti ng and meani ngs whi l e usi ng thi s course book.
Use onl y one l i ne of the traci ng sheet per Hanzi and trai ni ng cycl e - repeati ng of the readi ngs and meani ngs
of the Hanzi wi l l hel p you to ki l l practi ce ti me :-)
I f i n doubt how to wri te a Hanzi pl ease use your experi ence: When there i s no number di spl ayed, the stroke
order and wri ti ng i s as you have previ ousl y l earned ( assumi ng that you started thi s course book from the
very begi nni ng) .
Thi s course book i ntroduces si mpl i fi ed Chi nese characters as used i n Chi na and Si ngapore. 2 pri nted fonts
of each Hanzi are di spl ayed to hel p understand the smal l di fferences i n thei r appearance especi al l y when
handwri ti ng i s concerned. I n some cases tradi ti onal characters or deri vati ons are added for your
reference. Al l si mpl i fi ed Hanzi of thi s course book are part of the i nternati onal Chi nese l anguage
