Transcript of WHAT ARE CHINESE CHARACTERS?

Chinese Characters are logograms that represent a word. This is the written system, the Chinese use.

But what is a logogram?
For example, we see a small
logogram, but we remember this symbol and recognise a bigger picture.
It is the same with Chinese Characters.

How do we write
Chinese Characters?
Chinese Characters are written using strokes.
But what are strokes?
Do you think, when writing English words, we use strokes?
Yes we do!
For example, when writing the letter 'a', we use 2 strokes:
1. C
2. I
A stroke is a basic line that when configured, creates a Chinese Character!
Radicals!
Luckily, you don't have to remember all 105,000 Chinese Characters. Because most characters are made out of radicals.

Radicals have a specific meaning, so when 2 or more radicals are configured, they create another character.
