This course lists the 214 common 'radicals' of Chinese characters and their variant forms. Radicals are the building blocks for all Chinese words and often give clues about meaning or pronunciation.
Radicals are often used by the most popular mems to provide a story to aid memory of individual characters and words. This course will help learners make use of existing mems and enable them to better create their own.
This course does not test your ability to pronounce these radicals.
