Chineasy® for Children is a fun and easy way to learn how to read 100 Chinese characters with pictures.
Developed in collaboration with the Institute of Education, University College London, it features playful illustrations that relate each character’s shape to its meaning, alongside games and activities to make learning interactive.
Stories about life in China, Chinese proverbs and how Chinese characters developed give children a taste of Chinese culture, while activities make learning fun.
You’ll be surprised how easy Chinese is when you learn it the Chineasy way!
'ShaoLan demystifies Chinese characters through attractive graphics and imaginative activities. A very engaging book for young learners of Chinese'

About the Author
Born in Taipei and now living in London, ShaoLan Hsueh is a creator, entrepreneur, geek, writer, traveller and dreamer.
Chineasy is based on a method that ShaoLan designed to help her two British born children learn to read Chinese. She launched Chineasy after a rousingly well-received TED Talk in Long Beach, California in 2013. Her aim with Chineasy is to help anyone in the world to understand China, Chinese culture and its language.
For her this is also an arts project, as she grew up in an artistic family, being the daughter of a ceramic artist and a calligrapher. She is connecting the dots by going back to her artistic upbringing, and connecting her life's journey through the East and West.
