There’s a lot to learning Chinese, and we’re here to help. On this page, we’ve got quizzes on basic components of Chinese, from individual radicals to how to say “great minds think alike” in Mandarin.

Have some fun with it!

Don’t be overwhelmed, by the way. Chinese admittedly is probably not the easiest language to learn, but like any, it’s got its own rules that we’ve broken down for you.

Radicals, for instance, can indicate what a Chinese character means.

Measure words may see daunting at first, but they appear in English as well.

Some of the most famous proverbs you know are probably rooted in Chinese origin, you never know!

Did you know that some Chinese characters — usually the older ones from thousands of years ago — are pictograms?

This means that the character is modelled after the object it describes.

水 (shuǐ, water) is an example of this, can you tell?

Learning about Chinese characters and the way they are built is fascinating and some have truly unique ways of being built which makes learning Chinese genuinely fascinating for non native speakers!
