    One way to learn and remember Chinese Symbols and their meanings is to see them in context. And to make learning a bit more interesting I thought it would be kind of cool to see Chinese symbols in the context of popular movie plot descriptions.

    The original Chinese text is taken from the Chinese Wikipedia site for the movie "The Martian".

    Above you can see the full English translation plus the text in Traditional Chinese with links to meanings below. You can also see the individual Chinese symbols, out of context but sorted using the Easy Lookup Indexing system. You can click on these to see the meanings of these individual Chinese symbols plus their pronounciation (in pinyin) and their cangjie input codes.

    Below you can see the same text using Traditional and Simplified symbols and then below these the Chinese words and their meanings listed in the order they appear in the phrase above, so that you can "read" the definitions in context.

    The symbols in each word are linked to their corresponding entry in the online Easy Lookup Chinese Symbol Dictionary. Note that the online version contains 1600 entries while the pdf version over 6000.
