El prejuicio que tenemos de que los caracteres chinos son jeroglíficos da lugar a la creencia errónea de que hay que memorizar los miles de dibujitos. Pero, al igual que el inglés que tiene sus alfabetos, el chino tiene aproximadamente unos trescientos caracteres básicos. Y a través de la descomposición y recomposición de ellos, se puede leer y escribir y además comprender el significado de miles de caracteres chinos. ¡Aquí usted se encontrará con estos métodos tan sorprendentes!

¿Cómo se debe de aprender los caracteres básicos?
Este libro ha sido redactado con el fin de ayudar al lector con la comprensión del contexto en el que se diseñó y se utilizó cada uno de los caracteres básicos. Este método ayuda a aprender cada carácter con su contexto de una forma mucho más fácil que el de aprenderlos de memoria. Memorizar significa activar las células cerebrales a través de un fortalecimiento de la sinapsis que conecta las células cerebrales. Esta sinapsis se fortalece estimulando los cinco sentidos de “vista, oído, gusto, olfato, tacto”, con lo cual se queda en la memoria por más tiempo cuando se está en un contexto donde se utilizan todos estos sentidos. Si, además de comprender los caracteres básicos, se repitieran de forma natural, obtendríamos el mejor resultado, ya que una de las mejores formas de fortalecer la sinapsis es generar el mismo estímulo repetidamente. Este libro demuestra con diagramas la forma en que se combinan estos caracteres básicos para obtener un nuevo significado. Es decir, está estructurado de forma que se repita la letra básica en el centro del diagrama.

Una forma de estudio perfecta y práctica
Esta forma de estudio, que enseña tanto los principios como el contexto en que se generaron las letras chinas, a la vez, ayuda a comprender la razón por la que se modifica el significado de cada carácter. Por ejemplo, el carácter "色 [sè]" llegó a tener el significado de ‘color’ a partir de la postura de una persona(⺈) encima de otra persona(巴), en una relación sexual, que se excita y se ruboriza. Si conoce este contexto del carácter "色 [sè]" es muy fácil de comprender el porqué tiene además el significado de ‘lujuria.’

Kun Ho Park

The co-author of this book PARK, Kun-Ho, is a professional who was born in Korea but studied in Japan. When he returned to Korea, he worked as a resident employee for a Japanese company, and began teaching. He taught Japanese to the executives of conglomerates, and has authored various Japanese textbooks. He experienced his students having difficulties in learning Chinese characters (kanji), and researched how to learn Chinese characters easily. He patented his Chinese character learning text in 2013, in which he described the creation principles of Chinese characters in a chart. He wrote over 30 books in Chinese characters, including “Bunhaejoripsik Hanja (Disassembly and Assembly of Chinese Characters)” and “Funfun Hanja (Fun Fun Chinese Characters).”

Kyung Yong Kong

The co-author of this book is KONG, Kyung-Yong. Although he was born in Korea, he is the 78th descendent of Confucius, and due to his family, he was familiar with Chinese characters since youth. He was a bookworm who perused over the Britannica Encyclopedia when he was just a boy. He conceived of writing a book with the idea that Chinese characters with form and sound can be easily learned if meanings are given to the sounds. His experience reading encyclopedias and countless books helped him assign scientific or social meanings to the sounds. He is a professional publisher active in the publication field, participating in diverse activities such as writing, editing, and consulting governmental agencies or universities.

Dr. JIANG, Yong (蒋勇) - Professor of Chinese Language and Literature, Fudan University, Shanghai, China.
"The authors of this book have conducted extensive research on Chinese lexicology, etymology, phonology and grammar, and now share their expertise with Chinese language learners. Learning Chinese characters takes more time and effort for those whose native language uses alphabetic writing systems. The authors solved this problem by reinterpreting some of Chinese characters in their own imaginative ways. This extends readers’ horizons and helps them to make sense of the structures of Chinese characters through the use of interesting stories and fascinating cartoons. The characters in this book are organized around topics such as people, life, nature, etc. for the sake of easy recollection. The book helps learners to build their Chinese character and vocabulary base by grouping relevant characters and their associated words and phrases in a family in a systematic way. This book is an indispensable aid for people who want to master basic and commonly used Chinese characters and vocabulary within a short time. It is also a very useful reference book for Chinese language teachers."

"Learning Chinese is a daunting challenge for new learners, both in speaking and writing. While the challenge of listening to and speaking a new tongue is common to all languages, written Chinese presents a challenge on a whole different dimension. While most languages require just the memorization of an alphabet to learn the basics of how to read, Chinese seems to offer no such tool. It seems like an impossible task to memorize how to read and write hundreds of characters, and many give up early on. In that regard, this book offers a unique tool. It provides almost an alphabet-like tool that makes it unnecessary to memorize each character individually, from scratch. It also makes it possible to guess at the meanings of characters that you have not even learned—making vocabulary-in-context learning of the Chinese language also possible. And its insightful commentary regarding the shape of each character adds appreciation for this beautiful language. I would highly recommend this outstanding tool to any new learner of Chinese."

Su Hyon Pak - Language Instructor
"Playful cartoons and amusing storytelling may deceive serious students at first glance, but this comprehensive collection of 800 of the most frequently used Chinese characters will allow the reader to move past pinyin and learn to fully understand and appreciate the ancient language still in use today. Make use of this new and exciting way to undertake the seemingly impossible task of memorizing Chinese characters! Characters are broken down by fun explanations, quick references, examples, and color coded notes that piece together puzzle-like parts to create a whole picture of understanding.. Several learning tools such as dissection of pictograms, stroke order, and vocabulary lists are included, to name just a few. Ideal for foreign students beginning to learn basic characters as well as for students preparing to take the HSK or Chinese Proficiency Test, this text will assist readers to further understand the meaning of all Chinese characters!"

Wenqing Zhang - PhD
“Language is among the most important elements in a culture, and Chinese is no exception. Increased interest in China from those outside has led to a corresponding interest in the study of Chinese as a foreign language. As one of the world’s oldest and most complex language, however, Chinese may have already scared off many prospective learners whose native tongue is English or other languages. Chinese speaking feature a daunting array of variety and diversity, ranging from Mandarin to Cantonese and many minor dialects. People may suggest learners to start with a practical form of speech before proceeding to the more diverse forms. On the other hand, written Chinese is another story. Whether you agree with the idea that speech is primary, writing secondary or verse versa, what really makes Chinese hard to learn is its various characters. Note that Chinese characters have the longest history of continuous use. Learning Chinese characters poses different challenges for adults compared to children. Children usually have stronger phonological processing and vocabulary memorizing skills. They can memorize many Chinese characters without truly understanding the meanings of them. However, for adults, it could be a problem handling abundant Chinese characters without understanding them. This book tries to decompose each Chinese character and, as a result, helps readers to understand the origin and usage of each character. With the logic exposed, it will be easier for readers to make sense of parts in each character. This book will be of great use to both academics and regular learners interested in how to manage the complexity of standard written Chinese.”
