Synopsis:

The New Way to Read Chinese

ShaoLan Hsueh, a Taiwanese entrepreneur based in London, couldn’t find an effective way to teach her children Chinese, so she developed a groundbreaking visual method to make reading characters fun and easy. By learning the most commonly occurring characters—the building blocks of the entire language—readers of all ages can swiftly grasp basic concepts and words.

Chineasy Everyday teaches more than four hundred of the most useful Chinese characters, phrases, and sentences. Organized into eleven themes that reflect daily life, this book brings the stories and myths behind the characters to life, providing a unique perspective into Chinese history and culture.

“These cute images make reading Chinese characters ‘Chineasy.’”—NPR’s “Code Switch” blog

“In her delightful book...Hsueh offers an inspired approach to learning more than four hundred Chinese characters.”—San Francisco Chronicle blog
