My mind is so literal that I think it would help me to understand and memorize the characters and their meaning. I recently found on this site an explanation for the difference between sun and speech. It included pictograms and explanations. With all that detail I will never forget it.
I am perhaps intermediate level. I studied intensely in college for two semesters before heading to Beijing where I lived for a year. That was in the late 90's. Unfortunately I haven't had the time to use it or study it since. Now that I am quarantined I can go back to this language that I love to learn.
I just want some help learning. Some tools to help me remember.
