Resources for learning Chinese Hanzi using Heisig's method.

Remembering the Hanzi is a series of books by James Heisig, intended to teach the 3,000 most frequent characters to students of the Chinese language. There are three versions, for Simplified Chinese, Traditional Chinese, and Japanese Kanji.

I have developed and collected some simple resources to help students who want to learn 2,000 or 3,000 Hanzi using Heisig's method "Remembering the Hanzi". This method is very challenging and rewarding. It might be suitable for advanced secondary or tertiary students, and for independent adult learners who want to master Chinese.

I developed these resources for my own use, and I am sharing them for free on my website. There is also links to a posters, which are for sale on Redbubble, showing the 3000 Hanzi in order from Heisig's books. The posters are available for free in PDF format, if you prefer to print and laminate them yourself.

If you have an idea or a need for other printable resources or apps, I'd love to collaborate and help make them.
