Help with Chinese Radicals and Phonetic Elements.

I need some help learning Chinese characters. Any suggestions? I've been using flashcards to memorize some of the ones I learned on Duolingo but is that a good strategy?

Flashcards are good, though you should definitely practice writing characters by hand too. That really helps with recognizing various radicals and establishing characters in your memory. I use this site to check stroke orders (replace the end of the url with any character): http://www.chinesehideout.com/tools/strokeorder.php?c=子

I agree with you. Writing is the most effective way to memorize and recognize characters. I would also like to recommend this website https://www.yellowbridge.com/chinese/dictionary.php It is very easy to navigate and we can search for several ideograms by its english translation or even by its pinyin form (it is possible to check the stroke order as well :D ).
