  35. 35. Writing Chinese Characters<br /> Pick 5 Words that You’d love to write today.<br />Then…let’s learn how to write/draw them <br />
  36. 36. Writing Chinese Characters<br />Stroke Order<br />Two basic rules are followed: <br />Top  bottom <br />Left  right <br />Additional rules then these 2 rules conflicts: <br />Horizontal strokes intersecting vertical strokes 十<br />Left vertical stroke (usually) before top horizontal stroke 四<br />Left-falling strokes  right-falling strokes 九<br />Bottom horizontal stroke at last 四<br />Center stroke  wings 小<br />A final rule can contradict the others: <br /> Minor strokes (often) last 我<br />
  37. 37. Writing Chinese Characters<br />Component Order<br />Most Chinese characters are combinations of simpler, component characters. 思, 男, 你, 好<br />Top bottom or left right.<br />When one component is at the bottom-left, and the other at the top-right, the top-right component is sometimes written first. 运 <br />http://www.chinese-tools.com/learn/characters<br />
