WW (038) --- Mastering Chinese character set in 90 days

As the premise 4 is valid (being the direct deduction of the first three premises), the premise five (5) must be valid too.

Premise five --- the Chinese character system can be mastered in 90 days for anyone who knows not a single Chinese character at the beginning.

Furthermore, the premise five can actually be tested, and such a test was done with the case study data reviewed by,

1. Many American Universities --- data available at http://www.chineseetymology.com/letters.php

2. Taiwan Government --- data available at http://www.chineseetymology.com/taiwan.php



In addition to your own review on those data and this new etymology, you can get some opinions from the academic community about them. I am listing some major Chinese studies institutes in America for your convenience.
