221 high frequency characters

大块头

423 views

Page 40 has a table of calligraphy models for 221 high frequency characters. As is typical for this book, there is no annotation explaining what each character is supposed to be. After posting a dozen questions on HelloTalk, I think I've figured them out.

Can you read all of them?

As someone at intermediate level I've always found the ability to read handwriting really difficult. I guess that's something that comes with experience and exposure to the same characters handwritten all the time? Have you found this to be the case?

I puzzled over a few: 能正。

 

Note that in the key, 2C should be 国 not 果. (EDIT: Now fixed.)

A better grasp of the language will help you fill in the gaps when you encounter a written character you don't understand, but if you don't deliberately practice reading handwriting I don't think you'll spontaneously develop that ability. Even after taking the HSK6 and getting a job at a Chinese engineering firm I was still utterly baffled the couple of occasions a coworker passed me a handwritten note. One of the reasons I'm working through this book is to develop that ability.

I can't see the table anymore, is there a problem with the file?
