I'm not sure how many users here in Matters Town are English native speakers. If you are, you are very welcome to drop me a hello!

I have been dreaming to write both in Chinese and English for so many years. As ChatGPT has shaken the general market last year, translation can be so much easier than ever. However, I'd still like to try writing by myself, so that to keep my English writing skill level not dropping.

If you are learning Chinese, I have found a way to boost your Hanzi vocabulary. I am planning to write a book on this topic.

Inspired by the Swiden Sinologist Cecilia Lindqvist's (林西莉) book "China: Empire of Living Symbols," I'ld like to push further of what she had accomplished. Therefore, it is not for the beginners.

I have spent tons of time collecting and organizing Hanzi in a systematical order. Through my technique, you are able to learn about 500 Chinese SEED characters, and it is able expand to almost 3700 characters. The major key to accomplish this task is RADICAL.

Talking about Chinese language radical, it is a bit hard to understand radical in English. To translate "radical" precisely in Chinese, there are three types of components used in Chinese characters: 部件 (components), 部首 (radicals), and 偏旁 (side components).

The 500 seed characters are side components. By combining these 500 characters with common radicals, you should able to boost your hanzi characters to nearly 3700 characters!

I'll see you around…
