I’ve decided to try and learn (to identify at least) 10 new traditional Chinese characters a day in order to learn most or all of the 3000 essential characters in a year. However, instead of just learning them from #1 to #3000, I decided to learn them as I encounter them. For instance, if I get to a store and see a new character that I need to know, I’ll make a point of learning it.
Another way of doing it is to identify any unknown characters in a passage and study them. To do that, I’ve just bought an English/Chinese book, The Old Man and the Sea.
The problem I’ve encountered is that when you come across an unknown character, how do you identify it. Well, I did a Google search to see if I could find an online copy of the book in Chinese with the phrase “他一個老人” and found one. The reason for that was that I could use Chinese Perakun to read each character or set of characters. Unfortunately it is in simplified script.
I have NJ Star, but don’t know how to convert Simplified script into traditional script.
If someone could please give me some advice on how to convert it, I’d would appreciate it very much.
