Enjoy writing beautiful Chinese symbols immediately with the Chinese Alphabet by Good Characters.

Not everyone has the time or the desire to spend years learning Chinese. Most people just love the aesthetics of Chinese characters and want to know how to write a few of them. With the Chinese alphabet by Good Characters, anyone can start with what they already know, the English alphabet, and easily remember 26 Chinese characters and have fun writing them and communicating with friends in a novel way. The 26 alphabet characters can also be a solid foundation for learning even more Chinese characters.


Let's start with what you already know: the English alphabet. Look at the following authentic Chinese characters that look something like the letters of the alphabet. Do you think you can easily remember the shapes of these characters? Also: Print and Display Version | Print and Practice Version

Okay, truth be told, there is no such thing as a Chinese alphabet. But, just for fun, we have selected characters that are somewhat similar in appearance (not in sound!) to the letters of the English alphabet. They can be used like a code.


Once you learn how to use this writing system, you no longer have to worry about others reading your diary or other secrets! Chinese, Japanese, and Koreans will recognize the characters, but the combination of characters won't make sense to them. And people who cannot read Chinese won't even try to read it.


The symbols used in this “alphabet” are real Chinese characters. All are either positive or neutral in meaning.



The Chinese Alphabet is intended for personal use and entertainment only. Not recommended for tattoo artists to use with their clients, iOS app developers to localize Chinese apps, CIA agents to communicate national secrets, or security professionals to encrypt passwords.

Twelve years of providing authentic characters for 3,000+ small businesses in North America and 45 countries worldwide. California, U.S.A.
