So how am I learning radicals?
As I wrote in my previous post, Mandarin Poster is of great help. The website sells huge posters with 1500 Mandarin Chinese words (with pinyin). I am considering buying it.
Right now, however, I am using the free resources offered by their website. And what is that? A simplified radicals’ list (all on 1 page), the Chinese radicals database and a free downloadable and printable radicals’ poster.
I printed out the all-on-one-page radicals’ list, as well as the radicals’ poster. Now I am learning all the radicals (I will show you my work tomorrow).
But I would also like to describe the great radicals’ databease available online for free.
The radicals are listed according to the number of strikes. Each radical has its own page with: the Chinese sign, pinyin, variations, zhuyin, English meaning, important notes, a list of words that use that radical and example sentences (Chinese, pinyin and English). It is a very useful tool! And it looks like this:
This is not a paid advertisement. I really find this website a very simple, yet useful tool for Chinese self-learners!
