Uncrown Your Fears

 Have you ever tried to use Chinese character decomposition method to memorize Chinese characters?

Chinese character seems to be simple when its structure is analysed and understood.

Decomposition of the Chinese сharacter 般 bān ‘sort’ :

 

zhōu boat,

丿 piě slash,

丹 dān red,

⺆ jiōng down box,

一 yī one,

丶 zhǔ dot,

殳 shū weapon,

几 jǐ table,

丿 piě slash,

⺄ yǐ second,

又 yòu again,

 

舟丿丹一丶殳几丿⺄

 

I think the Chinese character decomposition can totally uncrown the myth about the Chinese characters’ difficulty.

What is your opinion?
