The following methods may let you know how to learn Chinese words fast.
1. Read first, then write.

We can first let the students feel the glyph, understand the meaning of character, remember the pronunciation, but reduce the requirements of writing. Read first, then write; read more, write less.

2. Stroke decomposition. Correctly decomposing the Chinese characters into strokes, especially synthetic strokes, which helps write and retrieve Chinese characters.

There are many ways to use character cards, such as guessing pronunciation, meaning, and connection while looking the Chinese characters on the back side. It can be used either by oneself or by two people.

4. Part combination. Teachers of Chinese as a foreign language can provide a set of parts, such as "口,十,又,土,女", requiring students to form more than ten Chinese characters.

5. Component construction. Teachers of Chinese as a foreign language can give students a component, such as "扌" or phonetic element, "令", asking students to write characters as much as possible with these components.

6. Dictation. This is one of the most commonly used methods to test students' mastery of Chinese characters, but it is not suitable to be used as the only or main method, because the learners using the phonetic alphabet as their mother languages are difficult to associate the Chinese character pattern with the sound in the short term.

7. Rule discovery. By selecting some typical phonetic characters, the teachers can guide the students to discover the rules of phonetic symbols and components to memorize Chinese characters. For example, we can let the students find the differences between "请,情,清,晴", and then explain their meanings.
