Do you know how many Chinese characters you need to know to live in China? 2,000? 3,000? 5,000? Unfortunately, we can’t give you an exact figure. It all depends on scenarios. If you know 500 characters, you can recognize 75 percent of what you see on the street. With 1,000 characters, you reach 89 percent! Uncle Hanzi says that one can learn these easily.
