    Even as a Chinese, I am shocked to learn them~ Here a lot of Characters are not used so often.

    Interesting.

      Hi 土木坛子, when you say “a lot”, I don’t agree. In this lesson, only 峨 and 娥 are less frequent. The range of characters I chose are from the most frequent currently used 3800 characters.

      However, you just gave me a good idea, I can mark out the less frequent characters so people can be selective when they’re learning.

    Besides 我 and 饿, all the rest are second-tone, so at least THAT is easy to remember! :D

      That’s what I was hoping for :-) I wouldn’t recommend a beginner to jump into this lesson. It is build for a learner at least had a few hundreds character base and some basic knowledge on Chinese to expand, review, compare and reinforce his/her memory on characters.

        Hey, I chose this series of lessons after the radicals part and I’m indeed a beginner. But you don’t recommend this for a beginner?? Can you give some insight? Thanks!

          Hi Raven,

          This series of lessons are mainly for character/vocabulary re-enforcement. It can be used as supplementary study especially when you’ve known a fair amount of words. That being said, it’s really up to you to take this lesson if you think it’s not too boring to go through. :-)

          Don’t expect to learn how to use new words from this series. It helps you with efficient way to memorize groups of characters, and smart way to recognize character, but it doesn’t teach you how to use them. To learn new words from lots of reading is my best recommendation. :-)

          Hope this helps,

          Grace

            Thanks for the reply! Then, do you think studying grammar along with words would help?
