About this book

Frustrated in your study of Korean? Try this RADICAL approach; Learn the Chinese Characters through their component radicals and incredibly fast you can increase your knowledge of Korean! Did you know that about 70% of Korean words are based on Chinese Characters?
A "Radical" Approach: Learn 2,300 Characters Through Their 214 Radicals.

This revised edition is larger than the previous one because it has a new section with the Chinese characters alphabetized by "Pinyin" also. The "standard" Characters will be followed, where appropriate, by the "simplified" characters used in the PRC. In addition, the number of Notes has been expanded from 2071 to 2100, to incorporate explanations from new research. The vocabulary list has also been slightly increased.

This book will serve not only the students learning Korean and Chinese characters used in Korean but will be a useful tool for those studying Chinese since the Mandarin Chinese pronunciation is now included.
