Learning Chinese is notoriously difficult and has long put off the most linguistically savvy Westerners... until now. Breaking down the great wall ‘of language, ShaoLan has unpicked Chinese characters and created a simple system for quickly understanding the basic building blocks of the written language. Working with renowned illustrator Noma Bar, she has delevoped a unique set of delightful illustrations that offer a glimpse into the wonder of the Chinese language and culture. The book’s main section introduces the building blocks – the key characters on which the language is built – and reveals how they can be combined to form a wealth of more complex words and phrases. In fewer than 200 pages, readers of all ages will have made the first steps towards a genuine appreciation of Chinese, loving every new character they learn.
