Publisher's Synopsis

HAN CHARACTERS + EMOJI = HANMOJI! If you can understand emojis, then you can learn Chinese. This colourful handbook from MIT Kids Press is a fun and memorable introduction to the Chinese language and a fascinating window into how languages evolve, ideal for readers 12+.

Even though their dates of origin are millennia apart, the languages of Chinese and emoji share similarities that the average smartphone user might find surprising. These "hanmoji" parallels offer an exciting new way to learn Chinese - and a fascinating window into the evolution of Chinese Han characters, how language is shaped by technology and what the parallel lives of Chinese
and emoji can tell us about the future of language.

Packed with fun illustrations and engaging descriptions, The Hanmoji Handbook is entertaining, accessible and educational - as well as a quirky, visual gift book for inquisitive readers.
