Unit 2: Signs and Symbols

This week we have began investigating signs and symbols in our Mandarin Learning.  We are looking more closely at Mandarin characters, specifically “picture words” that we can read and know their meaning just by looking at the character’s formation.

Here are some characters that we are looking at:



We are also looking at how the characters change from how they were first written down a long time ago to how they look now.  Below are some quick video clips that help to demonstrate the changes throughout history:

  1. The videos were so interesting. It reminded me of my grade 1 teacher who used to tell similar stories for us to learn the Persian alphabets. She used to make them up, but it’s amazing how these are true 🙂 Thank you for all the hard work!
