Second Step towards Reading Fluency in Chinese


You are well on your way to successfully learn to read Chinese, the most widely spoken language in the world.

This second volume follows the comprehensive, fun and pragmatic approach where characters are brought to life through funny and dramatic stories as well as why-didn’t-I-think-of-that mnemonics. Its building blocks, definitions and pronunciations are all part of the memorization process, allowing you to remember all aspects of a specific character in one fell swoop.

The Chinese Blockbuster series covers all aspects of a Chinese character:

The goal of the Chinese Blockbuster Series is not limited to teaching you the ‘top few Chinese characters you need to know to get by,’ only to realize later that you don’t get anywhere with such a limited number of characters. It covers what is necessary for reaching reading fluency in modern Chinese.


This is the second book of the series and its print and electronic versions can be purchased on Amazon.

Here are some Amazon’s reviews from all over the world:

Amazon's five stars
“This second book of the Chinese Blockbuster series is as great as the first one. The stories and sound words make it easy to learn the characters and remember them. I also like the illustrations and mnemonics which help to picture the characters which become more ingrained in your mind. The examples are also very useful to deepen the learning.
I started learning Chinese characters with the first book of the series and I recommend starting with Book 1. Many of the most frequently used characters are described in Book 1 and you will encounter them as building blocks for the characters introduced in Book 2. I was amazed to see how quickly my learning is progressing with this approach. And best of all, I had fun learning.”

“You will NOT find a better series of books for learning the meaning and pronunciation of Chinese characters. This series of books utilizes all the best memory techniques to make learning characters approachable. None of the other character books available come close. Be sure to start with book one, but do yourself a favour and do give this series a try. No other series uses mnemonics to teach you the pronunciation of both simplified and traditional characters, their various meanings, and the radicals that compose them to make learning and memorization manageable.”
