Teens ages 13-18, join the library and the Vermont Chinese School in learning about Chinese characters, their history, and how to make basic strokes and simple characters. Unlike the Roman alphabet, Chinese characters are used to illustrate meaning rather than sound. In fact, most characters were originally intended as visual representations of physical elements like trees, houses or humans. (studycli.org) Interested in learning to speak Cantonese or Mandarin?
