A New Method for Non-Native Speakers to Look Up the 2,000 Most Commonly Used Characters in Chinese
A breakthrough bilingual dictionary that makes finding the right Chinese character a breeze
When he surveyed his students, authorQuanyu Huang found that only two outof 300 used a Chinese dictionary. Theirmain obstacle is how existing dictionariesare organized; either a user needs to know the "radical"of a character, how to recognize or count writingstrokes, or how a character is pronounced. In McGraw-Hill's Chinese Dictionary and Guide to 20,000 EssentialWords the author overcomes this problem with hisunique "broken marks" method. Each character is comprisedof different marks separated by a physical spaceor sharp change of direction at the end of a mark.Count these marks, and you can locate theChinese character you need in less than a minute. This dictionary and guide will also be a perfect complement to your AP Chinese studies.
