A breakthrough bilingual dictionary that makes finding the right Chinese character a breeze
When he surveyed his students, author
Quanyu Huang found that only two out
of 300 used a Chinese dictionary. Their
main obstacle is how existing dictionaries
are organized; either a user needs to know the "radical"
of a character, how to recognize or count writing
strokes, or how a character is pronounced. In McGraw-
Hill's Chinese Dictionary and Guide to 20,000 Essential
Words the author overcomes this problem with his
unique "broken marks" method. Each character is comprised
of different marks separated by a physical space
or sharp change of direction at the end of a mark.
Count these marks, and you can locate the
Chinese character you need in less than a minute. This dictionary and guide will also be a perfect complement to your AP Chinese studies.
Quanyu Huang, Ph.D., is the director of the Confucius Institute in Oxford, Ohio, and a bestselling author in China.
