Chinese language teaching, no matter as a native language or as a foreign language, can not ignore Chinese character teaching. There are many teaching methods of Chinese characters, like “rhyming character teaching”, “picture teaching”, “Chinese character-family teaching”. Somebody regard “Zili(Chinese character structure motivation) teaching”as a teaching method of Chinese characters, in equal position with others mentioned above. However, the other methods are only specific teaching patterns. Teaching of Zili (Chinese character structure motivation) is an important principle in Chinese character teaching, which need to be further clarified in theory.
