Description This deck is designed to accompany Remembering Simplified Hanzi 1 and book 2 , and you will need those books in order to use this deck. A unique property of this deck is that it also allows you to learn Heisig's characters "out of sequence" while still using Heisig's general method. That means you can use this deck and Heisig's books to easily learn characters in any order you want, not only the order they are presented in the books. This is very useful if you want to learn how to read and write characters and words as you encounter them in other learning materials. Of course, you can also use this deck to learn the characters in the order presented in the books. In order to allow this "out of sequence" approach, I created a database that encoded all of the Heisig characters and primitive elements with their keywords, the sub-components they use, and any additional keywords that reference the characters when they are used as primitives for other characters.

Return to Book Page. Heisig ,. Timothy W. At long last the approach that has helped thousands of learners memorize Japanese kanji has been adapted to help students with Chinese characters. Book 1 of Remembering Simplified Hanzi covers the writing and meaning of the 1, most commonly used characters in the simplified Chinese writing system, plus another that are best learned at an early stage.
Book 2 adds an At long last the approach that has helped thousands of learners memorize Japanese kanji has been adapted to help students with Chinese characters. Book 2 adds another 1, characters for a total of 3, Of critical importance to the approach found in these pages is the systematic arranging of characters in an order best suited to memorization.
In the Chinese writing system, strokes and simple components are nested within relatively simple characters, which can, in turn, serve as parts of more complicated characters and so on. Taking advantage of this allows a logical ordering, making it possible for students to approach most new characters with prior knowledge that can greatly facilitate the learning process.
Guidance and detailed instructions are provided along the way. Students are taught to employ imaginative memory to associate each character's component parts, or primitive elements, with one another and with a key word that has been carefully selected to represent an important meaning of the character.
This is accomplished through the creation of a story that engagingly ties the primitive elements and key word together. In this way, the collections of dots, strokes, and components that make up the characters are associated in memorable fashion, dramatically shortening the time required for learning and helping to prevent characters from slipping out of memory.

Heisig's approach is great and what I really appreciate about the book is the sequence of characters. I've combined mnemonics with the power of an SRS Anki and went through the book in 5 months. I also added the pinyin and pronounciation to my flashcards and although I don't make a concious effort to learn them, they just stick by sheer repetition when I'm focusing on the characters.
It's certainly a handful, and before I dive into the second book, I'll take a few weeks br I loved this book. It's certainly a handful, and before I dive into the second book, I'll take a few weeks break to let my mind consolidate all the characters.

You create little stories or mnemonics for each character, which then build into the next character, and so on. At least in its capacity as a textbook or work book It's important to stress that this book is focused entirely on writing Chinese script, not learning useful words.
The characters are arranged based on their radicals, which means you see certain connections between them. You see even more connections if you bother to go through and write the pinyin in the margins, which takes DAYS. It's a crazy thing to do. But you have to be a little crazy to study Chinese as a second language anyway. Dec 07, Alien Citizen rated it really liked it. This is almost the book I wanted to write myself It assumes that you want to learn the chinese pronounciation after learning the meaning and that I don't like.
And clearly the stories or mnemonics that the author devises are not necessarily going to be as good as whatever you might have come up with yourself I certainly want a copy. View 2 comments. Apr 27, Nathan Cain rated it liked it. I didn't like the fact that about half way through he stops providing stories for the keywords.
Feb 17, Ellie rated it it was amazing. After three years of language study, this book has drastically increased my character retention. Not sure how I would have responded to this as an introductory text, and I think the absence of pinyin in the frames is equal parts infuriating and helpful.
Absolutely recommended but most helpful in conjunction with other learning tools. Feb 26, Helmut rated it it was amazing Shelves: china.
Dadurch, dass die allermeisten Zeichen sich aber aus anderen Teilzeichen zusammensetzen, kann eine Systematik das Lernen erleichtern: Eine solche Systematik wird hier vorgestellt. Nicht wirklich alltagstauglich.
