Writing Chinese characters


Different from English, Chinese characters are originated from pictography conveying the meanings through their pictorial resemblance to a physical object, and developed into what they are now.

Many of our students, at first, see writing Chinese characters and memorizing them as difficult because they are composed by different strokes. Nevertheless, writing according to the order of the strokes will definitely help learning and memorizing! Here are some basic rules:

1. top strokes before bottom ones
2. left strokes before right ones
3. horizontal strokes followed by vertical ones
4. bottom horizontal stroke last as to close
