About the Workbook

A Systematic Approach: From Easy to Difficult, From Characters to Words & Phrases

The characters in this workbook are specifically ordered by difficulty, progressing from easy to challenging. As you advance, we will begin to form words and sentences with the characters you have practiced. This approach enables you to not only learn how to use these words in sentences or conversations but also allows you to practice the characters repeatedly until you remember them naturally.

Learn Helpful Insights While Practicing Some Selected Characters

In addition to learning to write characters one at a time, you will discover some fun and helpful tidbits throughout the workbook, right beside some of the selected characters that you will be practicing:

  1. Grammar Points – Simplified explanations to help you construct sentences.
  2. Character or Word Origin – Insights into character or word origins for easy memorization.
