I would like to recommend Polina Shinkina’s “Open the Door to Chinese Book 3” for students who need to learn Mandarin Chinese for practical reasons.
This textbook gives a good idea of how to learn new vocabulary by looking at the characters.
A single character is broken down into smaller, meaningful components which are easy to memorize.
This process is called the Chinese character decomposition or the Chinese character breakdown or the Chinese character analysis.
The Chinese character decomposition will make your further study of the Chinese language much easier and effective!
