Look at the structure of Chinese characters appearing on a series of balloons. Classify the structure of each character. Stamp the characters according to their structures. Correct answers will pop the balloons. Note that there are about 400 components (basic characters) in Chinese writing. These components act as building blocks, which can be joined in different ways to form new characters. A combination of characters is called a structure. There are ten main structures as well as some exceptions. Learn the first three structures. Build your knowledge of character components and structures by checking meanings and spoken examples. Notice there are some exceptions to the general patterns when compounding characters. Increase the challenge by adjusting speed. This learning object is the first in a series of three objects that progressively increase in difficulty. The learning object is also available for use on tablets.
