ShaoLan Hsueh, a Taiwanese entrepreneur based in London, couldn’t find an effective way of teaching her children Chinese, so she developed a groundbreaking visual method to make reading characters fun and easy. By learning the most commonly occurring characters ­ the building blocks of the entire language ­ readers of all ages can swiftly grasp basic concepts and words.
