Chineasy: The New Way to Read Chinese is a collaboration between author ShaoLan Hsueh and graphic artist Noma Bar designed to provide a simple way to learn Chinese by combining the characters themselves with illustrations.
Chinese numbers in Mandarin pinyin and hand gestures. This is how one could show different numbers with one's hands in Chinese culture - I used to know all of these when I was little, but have a hard time remembering past 6 now.
Chinese characters used to be pictograms. These illustrations by ShaoLan Hsueh are witty as they show the fundamentals of Chinese characters and allow one to easily associate the referrents of these characters!
Do you know the difference between 万 (wàn) and 方 (fāng)? 万 (wàn) means 10000 and is most often found in numbers such as 十万 (shí wàn) or 100000. 方 (fāng) means square is usually seen as side in words like 方面 (fāng miàn) and 双方 (shuāng fāng). How do you remember 万 (wàn) and 方 (fāng)?
