Chinese Mandarin characters are beautiful, no doubts.
I think it isn't hard to learn modern/simplified Mandarin, but it's very very hard to learn traditional/classical Mandarin.
Like learning other languages, you need to use it whenever possible. As a proverb says 熟能生巧 (shu neng sheng qiao), practice makes perfect. Hope you enjoy learning such beautiful language.
