Understanding Chinese Characters

A channel dedicated to the history, beauty and complexity of Chinese Characters. Learn Chinese characters by understanding what elements they are made up of and how these elements changed in time through short khanacademy-style lectures. Remember characters easier through natural mnemonics that are in the characters and learn entire character series that are linked together phonetically through a single phonetic element. Hope you enjoy the videos.
