Learning from context in Chinese can be quite slow. How many characters can be achieved realistically in childhood? A few hundreds? That already is some achievement in the U.S. or the U.K. You need thousands to build up literacy. Before the end of primary school, the child’s cognitive intelligence is way beyond his reading skill in Chinese. That’s usually the time when even the parent may give up.

You can start with using this high frequency chart that contains the most frequent 250 Chinese characters with your child. Share this wonderful finding with your friends!

  1. F looks like traditional character. What does the A mean? BTW, thanks. I’ve been looking for something like this as I wasn’t sure which characters to restart/start their learning.

  2. A means alternative, mostly due to numeral forms. F means full form.
