phoneticsem Posted January 22, 2022 at 05:17 AM Report Share Posted January 22, 2022 at 05:17 AM I knew only few radicals say 100. I keep forgetting them or confuse some radicals with others. I generally learn meaning by breaking down into smaller components. When I do not know many components, it is taking too much time to learn all components and making the learning difficult. So I want to learn all building blocks of Chinese Characters. I decided to start with Radicals first and learn them, so that you never forget. I searched Anki Deck for all 214 Radicals and found the below. Chinese Radicals (All 214) : Free Anki Deck Alphabets to English and Radicals to Chinese all learners should know them at the beginning. Without knowing all Radicals you can never grasp Chinese. I will learn Writing, Meaning, Pronunciation of all 214 radicals and update my observations below. Please help share your views, if I am not on right track. I keep editing this first post. 1. Some People’s Opinion: The Radicals are just Section Headers.These are not complete set of Building Blocks of Chinese Characters. => Radicals might not be complete set of building blocks of chinese characters, but they are Core Key Values. Learn them first. 2. Some people’s opinion: Some Radicals, they can not be used on their own and for them no need to learn their pronunciation: => But make a habit to learn the pronunciation and meaning both. These are Core Chinese Characters and 214 only. In future you have to learn many more. Do not break the habit. => When a Radical is used as a Phonetic Component, then we can know the pronunciation of that word. 3. Sometimes Anki giving known words repeatedly, it is wasting my time. I want to learn only failed words and save time. => Go to the deck and press on failed words, dotted rectangle appears when selected, then press on review, you can review those failed words only. If you know this already good. I just learnt. Did you notice any difference before learning all radicals and after learning all radicals? Do you have any suggestions on how to identify all Building Blocks of Chinese, Please share your thoughts.Thank you. Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
