Chinese writing is formed by symbols known as characters (hanzi) 汉字. They look as if they were little drawings that represent different forms. For example, 人(rén) means person and looks like the silhouette of a walking human being. This character though 水 (shui), always represents water, either splashing or water drops.

Chinese writing system is the oldest one in the world; the first statement was made more than 3300 years ago on bones and turtles shells. They were also drawn on steel bells and vessels. China is a country with legends, dragons and fireworks. Fairytales are magical, are you ready to travel back in time to discover the Chinese world, its language and its drawings?
