Hello Denisse


It doesn't matter how they are listed or numbered. They are really helpful for learning Chinese words, and are the right place to start for memorizing Chinese characters. What really matters is that it takes time to learn some radicals and memorize words.

When learning Chinese as a second language, you don't need to learn that many radicals as native Chinese people, so even 30-50 radicals can be quite a knowledge.


Thanks for learning with us.

Hello 😄

I just find out that radicals here ( https://www.chineseclass101.com/chinese-radicals/ ) are numbered different from other resources ( https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Kangxi_radical ) for example, the radical number 34 is not the same on the Internet and here, what is more important...

Does it matter like too much? Learning them as #radicalnumber? 😳❤️️

Hi, Denisse,


Yes, we change the verb depending of how we read.

读书 , use mouth

看书 = use eyes, not use mouth

看杂志 is a fixed collocation, because we usually just (watch) the book, not read it out.


I know Chinese may be a little bit difficult for beginners.

But do not give up easily!

Do I have to change the verb depending of what I want to read? :O

读书 - read a book

看杂志 - read a magazine

Can it be 读杂志, or not? :o

BTW, thanks for the help before, I guess I haven't given up yet :v XD

Although I got questions like the one on this comment :/
