Understanding Chinese Characters - 扁 bian3 phonetic series
Trying to learn Mandarin Chinese and find that it isn't just the tones, but memorizing the characters that is a challenge? You definitely need to check out this YouTuber's videos. He helps me cross the bride of being dependent on an alphabet for literacy. I'm not across that bridge yet! But, I'm very much thankful for finding his videos so I can understand a little of the etymology or phonetics of different words and why different characters are created.
