In the spirit of practice making perfect, today we're pleased to present twelve more characters for you to brutally massacre while learning to write Chinese characters. We're highlighting these because they reinforce the most important rules you need to remember while learning to write Chinese. Draw your strokes from left to right, top to bottom, and from the outside in.

If you're new to Chinese and the prospect of writing the language terrifies you, we recommend going back and starting from scratch with our lesson series on how to write Chinese characters, which will start you off with some very simple characters. If you are not a premium subscriber you can also practice using the free version of our Chinese writing pad, which will shuffle you though twenty characters at random.

It seems writting character is more difficult than oral chinese.

It can be when you start... but I personally think it's actually a lot easier. There aren't that many rules to follow, and once you know them you can write pretty much any character you want.

As Tom Hanks said to Gena Davis in "A league of their Own" :"If it was easy, then everybody would be doing it." (Something like that)

@Luolin,

I believe it was Tom Hanks screaming "There's no cryin' when writing Chinese!"
