Learn Chinese in Chinese Medicine
Did you know that over 80,000 Chinese characters have been created over the centuries, but most are seldom used today? You would only need to learn about 2,000-3,000 characters to read the Chinese newspaper. The average Chinese person knows about 8,000 characters.
This course is an intro in learning basic Chinese characters commonly used in Chinese Medicine. We will study common characters and radicals that show up in Chinese Medicine and why they are used.
This course is not for people who want to learn how to speak everyday Chinese. This is for people who are curious of Chinese culture and characters used in the context of Chinese Medicine. It is a great intro for students who are studying or want to study Chinese Medicine and Herbal Medicine in a fun and easy way.
