2. Principle and grounds
a. Concentrated and fast recognition of Chinese characters
Chinese character features in phrase formed with words, but words are less than phrases. The sequence of learning Chinese is from individual word--phrase—sentence---text. However, the sequence of learning a foreign language is from phrase---sentence---text. Therefore, learning Chinese language should not be like learning a foreign language. That is the difference between Chinese and foreign language. It thanks to the successful method of a Book of a Thousand Characters a thousand years ago. it is effective and self-evident.
b. Phrase-formation with characters
This is Prof. Zhang’s innovation of Chinese language teaching approach, which seems to decodng the Chinese characters and has been approved why more than 2000 characters are enough for use. That is the differrence of traditional Chinese teaching methods, just as the saying goes “twice the result with half the effort and half the result with twice the effort”.
