Chineasy, A Visual System to Easily Learn Chinese Characters Using Simple Illustrations


Chineasy: The New Way to Read Chinese is a collaboration between London entrepreneur and author ShaoLan Hsueh and graphic artist Noma Bar designed to provide a simple way to learn Chinese by combining the characters themselves with illustrations that provide an easy touchstone for reference.

Chineasy’s goal is to allow people to learn to read Chinese easily by recognising characters through simple illustrations. The magical power of the Chineasy method is that by learning one small set of building blocks, students can build many new words, characters, and phrases.

This was all made possible in part thanks to the project’s successful 2013 Kickstarter campaign, which raised £197,626. The system is set to release on March 14th. You can pre-order Chineasy: The New Way to Read Chinese on Amazon.
