Chinese characters teaching material
Nowadays, learning Chinese as a foreign language contributes to learners’ ability to assimilate in a foreign society. Unlike many popular foreign languages, Chinese is very different from the Latin language and Chinese characters are the most difficult part of learning the language. This research addresses this problem. There was a method called the “sinogram-based teaching approach,” which used a word as the basic unit of teaching. It arose during the end of the 20th century. Since then, more theories have been established. Researchers and teachers alike have tried to teach Chinese by accumulating similar characters with the notion of creating a more effective input method. Afterwards, there were lots of teaching materials of accumulating both similar and sinogram-based characters. Until now, researchers have tried finding a new version to solve the obstacles of learning Chinese characters. Some Chinese characters have a phonetic radical or a semantic radical. We can pronounce a character by its phonetic radical and know its meaning by its semantic radical. Hence, this study attempts to develop a teaching material based on the phonetic radical method and use it as a teaching experiment. This study attempts to prove this method does help students when they are learning characters. Attached to this study is a survey for Chinese teachers. This survey illustrates how teachers think about this teaching method. The outcome of this study shows students did improve on their learning and teachers felt positive about this teaching method.
