Another thing Moser repeatedly talks about is that the Chinese writing system is difficult. I totally agree, and I will give additional points and examples to elaborate. Nobody can ever make Chinese writing system easy.

There are six workshops under this theme. Each workshop explains one specific aspect of Chinese characters, such as the form, the pictorial origins, radicals, and etc. Participating through these workshops will give you a better understanding of Chinese characters and their history. All levels of Mandarin learners are welcome. Each workshop is 30 minutes long. Registration fee is HK$100 per person per workshop. Early bird fee is HK$80.
