For those who think that it would be mas­sively dif­fi­cult to learn to read Chi­nese char­ac­ters, then this is the book for you.

En­trepreneur ShaoLan Hsueh cre­ated Chineasy® to ed­u­cate the world about the rich­ness of Chi­nese cul­ture through its writ­ten lan­guage. Her vis­ual, build­ing-block-style teach­ing method makes learn­ing char­ac­ters sur­pris­ingly sim­ple. By learn­ing com­mon char­ac­ters, you can grasp and com­mu­ni­cate ba­sic words and phrases while trav­el­ling.

With fan­tas­tic il­lus­tra­tions by Noma Bar, this guide breaks down es­sen­tial char­ac­ters for read­ing di­rec­tions, mak­ing pur­chases, us­ing pub­lic trans­port, or­der­ing food from a menu, and more.

ShoaLan also ex­plains the his­tory and cul­tural in­flu­ences be­hind each char­ac­ter, which helps you to learn the fun­da­men­tal build­ing-blocks. This book is the per­fect pocket-sized com­pan­ion to help you break down the bar­ri­ers of lan­guage and cul­ture, and broaden your trav­el­ing hori­zons in the Chi­nese-speak­ing world.
