Hey there! First of all, really happy to launch this site :) As the slogan says, this site is just another different way to learn Chinese in a funny and cute way.
How it works
It works easily as everybody can understand and makes you happy (maybe). as the dog picture shows here, every picture (drawing) shows you 4 items about a single Chinese word, they are: pinyin -> Chinese Character -> English -> a little story about the Chinese. That’s it.
Even if you’re going to learn some English words, that’s good for you, also. People usually say that “A picture is worth a thousand words” – sometimes, an image may be more meaningful than a substantial amount of text or a teacher’s millions of words in the 45-minute class. Well, I’m not a Chinese teacher and this drawing idea is not a professional course for you to learn Chinese. I just think this idea is funny, visual, cute and even makes an impression. Maybe you can learn something here you can’t learn from a Chinese class or something like that.
Don’t focus on it too much
As I said above, as much as you might like my drawings, they are just a small part of your Chinese studying plan, like the dessert after dinner.
Here I’d like to say “thank you” to my big brother, Jeff, who’s a nice American. (I called him Mr All-Over-the-Web.) A couple of weeks ago, we’re talking about learning Chinese, and I taught him some simple Chinese words. I saw a notebook and a cute pen next to my hand, so I picked them up and made some drawings for him to give him a better understanding of the Chinese words. That’s the story. And as long as I made the drawings, I found I really like them and love doing that, it’s fun and a little helpful.
So, I’ve made the drawings and built this site just for fun and if it helps you for your Chinese, it’d be great and not so bad, haha.
