Many people have asked us “Why these 48 characters?”

We chose these 48 characters based on 5 principles:

(1) All of them are the same for both traditional and simplified Chinese.

(2) We prioritized the high-frequency words and essential radicals, such as 日 (day/sun), 火 (fire), and 口 (mouth).

(3) We carefully chose words that can spark teaching moments. For example, 王 (king) and 主 (master) look similar but have different meanings. 安 (peaceful) and 家 (family), both have the part “宀” with the meaning of “roof”. 女 (woman) + 子 (son) = 好 (good).

(4) Iconic design: Chineasy has won numerous international awards such as the Wallpaper Design Award (Life-Enhancer of the Year), Design Museum Design of the Year, D&AD Design Award, and many others. For example, 川 (river) although is not a frequently used character, the design with visual aids made it so easy to remember!

(5) Fun: Because learners love them!  During user testing, we always ask learners which characters are their favorites, and we found that 丑 (clown) and 球 (ball) are the most popular, especially for young learners.
