I just started a new group on 88Groups called Character Insanity.
Learning to read Chinese is tough, but its an effort that really pays off when you're able to just read the Chinese that's around you. Of course just learning the character is only half the battle -- there are a whole lot of words that are made from those character that need to be learned -- but it's a critical half.
In the group we're going to be going through the 3000 most common characters at a rate of five per day, five days a week. At that rate it will take a little more than two years to finish, but its a good speed for those of you that have a lot of other things to do in addition to studying Chinese.
Come on over, join the group, and say hello :)
