These five hundred characters match the characters taught in Méthode de chinois premier niveau (Chinese method first level) published by L'Asiathèque. On each page appears seven characters in seven major squares arranged in a vertical column, with reference to the pinyin transcription of character. Two icons to the right of pinyin marks, if any, that the character is part of a list of characters from HSK and / or is part of a list of characters in the Secondary Learning. The meaning and stroke order is indicated by arrows and numbers. The rest of the page is reserved for students who must enter the characters in the square corresponding, three rows of squares are provided for each character. The squares of the first row containing the character repeated several times for a first training. A grid, backstory, identifies the placement of different traits.
