Learn chinese characters or not?

I just started to learn chinese and its already overwelming. Am I really expected to learn the chinese characters along with the words, pronounciation and pinyin, or is it better to ignore for now? Cause that’s what Ive been doing.

Hi Johnny,

If you are interested in characters, I would suggest you learn them from the very beginning at an acceptable pace, such as 2-5 words per day. Besides, in my opinion, knowing the origin of each character is a useful way to learn them. If you have any questions about learning characters, feel free to leave them down here. We’ll reply to you as soon as possible.
