2. Easy Way to Learn Chinese Characters (Simplified Chinese Characters)
language books

This Chinese character textbook is specifically designed for English speakers who wish to learn Chinese characters. With 20 lessons, users of this book will be able to learn approximately 800 Chinese characters efficiently. (Once you learned this 800, the rest 2,200 of the 3,000 commonly used Chinese characters will be easy!)

This book is recommended by Roddy, an Irish learning Chinese in Beijing.

"There are lots of books that will claim to teach you Chinese characters, and I'm only going to recommend one of them. Entitled the 'Easy Way to Learn Chinese Characters' the book does actually go some way to living up to its title. Most of the textbooks I have seen give you a text and then ask you to learn characters from the text. While this is all very well, it ignores the patterns of structure and composition in Chinese characters. This book doesn't give you any texts, but instead asks you to learn characters according to similarity - for example, all characters with the water radical, or all characters composed of two other characters side by side. This means you are learning characters in sets and groups rather than individually. A very good book indeed, and I credit it with teaching me to read Chinese. Or at least, with teaching me to learn that Chinese which I can read."
