A Feedback from the Chinese Language Teachers


In responce to my articles about the Chinese character decomposition I am receiving a feedback from the Chinese language teachers.

The requests can be structurized as the following:

1. There is “something in the Chinese character decomposition”.
2. No time and resources to decompose the Chinese characters.
3. No textbooks with the decomposed Chinese characters.

My answers to the esteemed colleagues are:

1. The Chinese Character decomposition is the new word in the Chinese language teaching. No doubt in it.

2. Decomposition is a highly time consuming process. It took me about ten years to work out and test this principle in the classroom with my students.

3. The textbooks with the Chinese character decomposition are available on Polina Shinkina’s Author Spotlight page http://www.lulu.com/spotlight/polina985.  

All the Chinese characters are decomposed in them. No need for you to re-decompose. Just take the textbook you like and teach successfully!


Good luck dear colleagues in your noble endeavours!

Chinese character      jù   ‘get togetherconsists of the radical      ěr   ear’, radical   yòuagainand character    yín  stand in the crowd’.

So, the main components of the Chinese Character      zhòu   ‘gallop, suddenare:

1. Radical      mǎ   ‘horse,
2. Character      jù   ‘get together’.

Uncrown Your Fears



Have you ever tried to use Chinese character decomposition method to memorize Chinese characters?

Chinese character seems to be simple when its structure is analysed and understood.

Decomposition of the Chinese сharacter bān ‘sort’ :

zhōu boat,
丿 piě slash,
dān red,
jiōng down box,
yī one,
zhǔ dot,
shū weapon,
jǐ table,
丿 piě slash,
yǐ second,
yòu again,

舟丿丹 一丶殳几丿⺄

I think the Chinese character decomposition can totally uncrown the myth about the Chinese characters’ difficulty.
What is your opinion?
