Publisher: Beijing University Press, 2019
Description: Learning 100 Chinese Radicals is specifically designed for non-native learners of Chinese. This is the first radical textbook which systematically introduces 100 high frequency radicals using plain language. The textbook also provides cultural stories and copious illustrations to help students memorize the radicals. In addition to the exercises in the workbook, there are further exercises on our companion website. These online exercises are interactive and accompanied by pictures and music. Here students can further explore radicals according to their own needs and interests. The merit of this book lies not only in its focus on introducing radical knowledge but also in its method of using previously learned radicals to teach new characters. The textbook is written in English and Chinese and is suitable for high school and college beginning-level students. Advanced, college-level Chinese learners will greatly benefit by reading the Chinese section of the textbook.
