"Chinese Character Canon" Introduction
Chinese characters are often criticized for being overly complex relative to other language system. One reason for the added complexity is the different information content of the characters. Roman letters give relatively precise information on pronunciation, but no information on meaning. In contrast, Chinese characters give less precise (and sometimes no) pronunciation information, but do give information on meaning. How many Chinese characters a native Chinese speaker should learn for daily life? China Education Ministry requires students to master 2,540 Chinese characters after elementary school, 2,905 after junior high school, and 3,755 after 12th grade of high school.
