What's the best way to study and retain Chinese characters?
I’m learning how to read, write, and pronounce Chinese characters, and I’m wondering if there’s a more efficient way to learn them for long-term retention. Currently I use a mixture of the flashcard program Anki, 3×5 cards, and spending some time every day at the chalkboard practicing writing characters.
