How to write Chinese characters
The order of strokes of Chinese characters are traditionally classified into eight basic forms, each appearing in the character "eternally" and according to their contemporary names("Dian", "Heng", "Shu", "Gou", "Ti", "Pie", "Duan Pie", "Na"). Though somewhat arbitrary, this system has remained popular for nearly two millenia. Go to this page to learn more about the order of strokes of Chinese characters.
