Living or travelling in China may be daunting to most westerners as learning to speak Chinese is a hard task. But learning to read the beautiful, often complex characters of the Chinese written language may be less difficult. ShaoLan walks through a simple lesson in recognizing the ideas behind the characters and their meaning – building from a few simple forms to more complex concepts. Call it Chineasy. (Note: if you want to watch TEDtalk videos on youtube, you will need a VPN when you are in China)
