A Key to the Chinese Language Door [Feb. 22nd, 2017|07:13 am]
University of Chicago

When you unlock the room you should know which key to use. When you study a foreign language you should choose the most successful method to do it.

Different languages demand different approaches.

To study the Chinese language the best method is Chinese character decomposition. It means splitting a Chinese character into components and radicals. Then you see how simple a Chinese character is!

So, the knowledge of the Chinese radicals is the key to the Chinese language door!

You can see it for yourself in this very sample below.

Decomposition of the Chinese character 千 qiān ‘thousand’:

千 qiān thousand
丿 piě slash
十 shí ten
一 yī one
丨 gǔn line

It is clear as a day, isn’t it?

On an unrelated note, what do people think about UChicago Hookups? Is it in the true UChicago spirit? Or has the student body been changing in the past 3-4 years?

Free Amazon Prime for students [Aug. 25th, 2010|05:26 am]
University of Chicago

Amazon is currently giving free 1 year memberships to Amazon Prime (free 2 day shipping, $3.99 overnight shipping) to current students with a .edu email address: http://www.amazon.com/gp/student/signup/info I'm not sure how long they're offering this (it doesn't say on the site).

Just thought i'd give fellow students the heads up on this in case you haven't heard about it yet. This is going to save me a ton on shipping textbooks this year!
