This is important! How to learn finding Chinese characters faster?

Good news! You don't have to draw something with a mouse. Anyway, it doesn't work good with a Chinese characters like 鹰. You can start building the Chinese characters from its parts right now just like LEGO sets only with simple clicking on the building blocks above! There are a few important rules to help you to find Chinese characters without making any mistake:

1. Let's call it 'See one hierogliph, but tap the other!' Once I spend hours trying to find the Chinese character from a graffiti and nothing worked out, because I'd been looking for the part from the left side (among the building blocks). Suprise! This character just equals the partner from the right side, 又,
so you must tap 又 twice. It's so simple as 又+又 if you know the trick.

2. While finding the repeating Chinese characters, tap them one by one in a line. I mean, click any additional characters at the very end. Other words, tap 月,月,山 while searching for 崩. Or 又,又,又,又 for 缀.

3. Our hearts often make us to make mistakes! And 心 works the same way! So, if you looking for something like 思 with this unusual bottom part, or having the same pattern 忽 or 息, tap the 心 glyph first, -- and then any upper parts. I made the heart red.

By the way, the Chinese character 心 crossed by '一' means 必 (must). Well, sometimes we have to do something that we don't like.

4. While handling a Chinese character with the components, be careful. They have the different meaning, which depends on its position in a glyph (at the left or the right side).

Right '⻏', for example, gives you a gallery (廊). But the left '⻖' could bring a fall (堕). I made the writings 'left' and 'right' to help you to pick up the proper building block.

5. For the cases with 'legs' like (at the bottom), tap the '𧘇' hieroglyph. It's just like the situation with the heart above, there are no special characters for the simplified forms.

6. In general, to build the Chinese character like-a-LEGO set, don't be in a harry. First try to found the biggest, but simple puzzle parts like 又, 目 or 贝.

BTW, choosing the very first components in the table above, you can get a longer way to find your Chinese character.

7. The radicals and other parts below down, deeper, 9 hundred of them... They are hard to lock as a target, but they could help you find the Chinese characters from the very first tap.

Other words, more long journey with the first glyphs, optimum finding the Chinese characters in the middle of the table. And the long scrolling down the page to 'shoot down' the hieroglyph from the very first tap.

8. And as we all know, most Chinese words contains two, three and even more characters. That means, you have to find and copy, -- one by one, -- to a text file first 风, then 景, to compose a word 'landscape'. Then translate the sequence of these Chinese characters by Google Translate.

9. The base contains 2000 Chinese characters for a now and it is growing.

10. How could I forget about the following? is not the 囗! The second one (from this pair) contains smaller characters inside. But the first, the blue one, is always empty!

Click them in the table above to see the difference.
