  • Hello welcome back, this is our last introductory lesson before you learn your first chinese

  • characters. But before we dive in, I want to make sure you meet our course prerequisites

  • first. We strongly believe that spoken chinese and written chinese should be taught separately.

  • And it's more efficient if you learn how to speak first. And then how to read and type.

  • Based on this philosophy, this character course is designed for learners, who either have

  • already completed our yoyo beginner conversational chinese course or at least have the basis

  • of spoken chinses down. The focus of this course is to teach you the characters for

  • things you already know how to say. In other words, you should get the how to say part

  • done before you take this course. I hope that's clear. Alright, now let's talk a little bit

  • about the characters we teach. You might know that there are two categories of chinese

  • characters. Simplified, jiǎn tǐ zì and traditional fán tǐ zì. Originally all characters

  • were the same, but at one point the government of mainland china wanted to raise the literacy

  • rate in china, and they came up with ways to make some of the more complicated characters

  • a little simpler and easier to learn. For example, this is character for horse, mǎ

  • in simplified characters, and this is how it looks in tradition characters. This is

  • the character for door, mén in simplified characters, and this is how it looks in traditional

  • characters. So they use those simplified characters in mainland China as well as in Singapore.

  • They kept the traditional characters in Hong Kong and Taiwan. How different are the two

  • systems? Well about 80% of the characters are the same in simplified and traditional.

  • So there's not a huge difference between the two. And I think most chinese people have

  • enough exposure to both systems that they can read either one. The primary focus of

  • this course will be on simplified characters. But for the 20%of the characters that are

  • different in the traditional form, we will show you that version too, on the practice

  • sheets. Great, now let's take a look at how our lessons are organized by going over some

  • numbers. In this course, we are going to learn a total of 300 characters. The lessons that

  • are grouped into 5 levels. Each level covers a total of 60 characters .We are going to

  • break these 300 characters down into bite-size mini lessons, with each lesson covering 3

  • new characters. To help you retain what you learn, we are also going to have a lot of

  • review lessons. For every 15 new characters you learn, we are going to arrange a review

  • lesson. At the end of the course, we are going to have 3 big review lessons. we give those

  • 300 characters a very special name, the YoYo 300, because they are like the warriors in

  • the movie 300, which by the way is one of my favorites. As a group, they are small but they are extremely

  • powerful. Together they can accomplish a lot. By knowing these 300 characters, not only

  • will you be able to read and type a lot of what you can already say, buy you will also

  • be ready to learn any other new character that comes your way, because theses 300 characters

  • will cover all the basic components you need to know. The YoYo 300 will give you a really

  • solid foundation. So how exactly will I teach you the YoYo 300? Well, I think most people

  • learn best if they have lots of different ways to remember a character. So each time

  • I introduce a new character, I will use arrange of tools from stroke order demonstrations

  • to cartoon illustrations to animations. There will be a lot of supplementary materials for

  • each lesson. After watching the video, you can practice on your own with our review worksheets.

  • The worksheet will include basic review and practice materials as well as a lot of bonus

  • stuff. For example, one of the bonuses in the review worksheet is that we are going

  • to show you real life images of street signs or texts that use the YoYo 300 characters.

  • So that you can get used to recognizing characters in all sources of authentic settings. We also

  • provide you an opportunity to practice your handwriting in our review worksheet. Just

  • in case you want to learn how to write characters by hand. You can also use it to help you recognize

  • chinese characters better. And lastly, we will also provide you a quiz sheet for each

  • lesson, which will allow you to track your own progress. Well I'm definitely ready to

  • get started and I hope you are too. In our next lesson, you will learn your first 3 characters.

  • I can't wait. Alright, see you in the YoYo 300. Zài jiàn.
