The complete set of Chinesee flashcards comprises 80 classic Chinese characters. The idea behind this project is to create a practical, unique and imaginative learning tool, making Chinese learning experiences not only visual but highly cultural-oriented. Each flash card is thoughtfully designed and created with pinyin (tones), a Chinese character, its English translation, a three-set visual showing the transforming process from its original pictograph to the simplified version used in mainland China nowadays. At the back of each card, you may find common daily phrases of the particular character, and specially, a short story or a detailed translation of a Chinese idiom regarding the character. The cards also cater for learners at different levels, regardless whether you are a newbie, who just started to learn the basic characters and pinyin; or you are on intermediate or advanced level, who wish to dig deep to the use of Chinese idioms. All cards are in PDF files, making it easy for digital viewing and printing based on teaching methods and needs (see our 'User Guide' below for flexiable printing options).
Learning a new language is never and should never be purely about learning the language itself. The transformation of a Chinese character is also the transformation of its culture, which was narrated though visuals and stories. The power of storytelling is embedded in the Chinesee flashcards as they not only show you how language was initially used to communicate through symbols; but also get your whole brain to work by visualising the story or meanings each character presents. May the flashcards open up, gravitate, and set you further in your journey of learning or teaching this language.
Enjoy! It is simply more than a flashcard.
(Due to uploading size, the 80 cards are divided into 40 set in each zip file)
