thirty down, seventy to go

In the past three weeks, I have about memorized 30 chinese radicals, quickly accelerating to accomplish my resolution to learn 100 characters… My own little “racing towards…” campaign, I guess. The most recent 10 or so have come quite fast. Now I wish I had been studying earnestly since the beginning of the year :-/

The book says something to the effect of “mastering these 100 characters will allow the average reader to understand approximately 45% of an everyday Chinese publication” (newspaper, etc.). That’s crazy talk. But I hope it’s true! :D.
