The intervention of key-imaged pictured-based approach of teaching Chinese-characters in the online classroom was applied to the experimental class over a 15-lesson period in 3 months. The control class accepted Chinese language class without the intervention in the regular classroom in the same period of teaching schedule. The result of a detailed one-way ANCOVA demonstrated that the intervention of key-imaged pictured-based approach of teaching Chinese-characters with online environment in the experimental class contributed significant grow in vocabulary skills.
