    Lightbulb A new way of learning Chinese

    Hi all,

    When talking to some friends I've heard that many of them, who are interested in learning the ancient language, had the same problem: difficulty to understand the complex structure that Chinese characters present.
    In fact, the characters, similar to Egyptian hieroglyphics, were created from the first perception that our ancestors had with the nature. So in simple words, sometime it is easier to depict them through their connections with the nature.
    So the good news is there are already brilliant minds that have thought about this and designed an amazing new way of learning the language.
    See examples as: https://www.chineasy.com/
    I hope this information serves to those who are still interested but are afraid to fail in the attempt.

    Wow, after reading that, I'm not sure if it got easier or actually harder for me. It looks very hieroglyphic-like indeed! It all comes down to representations of physical objects and (at least at first) logical combinations of these representations to come up with abstract concepts.

    Even if I can't say I speak Chinese now, I can at least say I understand where it comes from! That's a whole lot more than what I knew 15 minutes ago!

    Haha, you see. After all, Chinese isnīt that hard . It is said that if you understand Chinese, then you are one of those smartest people on the planet. Welcome on board! I guess...
