Learn Chinese Characters with Video – 汉字宫 – Han Zi Gong

It was a dark and stormy night, and I was hoarding torrents…. when I chanced upon……

Han Zi Gong – 汉字宫

Han Zi Gong seems to be a show aimed at chinese kids to help them study characters.

It features a young brother and sister as they stumble upon the magical character learning cave of some old chinese dude with a long white beard.

It’s great for lower intermediate/ intermediate chinese learners. If you know the characters, you may practice your listening comprehension and build your vocabulary through context.

Comment and let me know what you think!

How you can learn Chinese FAST, without taking classes.

You want to learn Chinese.

You don’t have any money, so you can’t afford classes.

That’s okay… you don’t really need to.  There are many free resources and programs that can get you started on your language learning journey.

When you’re learning Chinese, you’ll need 3 things….

Grammar, Vocabulary, and Practice.

The best way to learn  grammar is through language learning Podcasts, like http://www.chineseclass101.com or http://www.chinesepod.com

In order to build your vocabulary, I’d reccommend a great free language learning application, like http://www.memrise.com

And the best free way to practice would be to find an online language partner through this website http://www.italki.com
