Learning to write Chinese characters doesn’t have to be tedious and boring. It is doable and can be fun! We are going to learn to write Chinese characters with the good old pen and paper 😀 (you can use a tablet if that is how you roll ;D)

Requirement

If you can draw a line from point A to point B, then you are good to go! 

How does this challenge work?

If you are a complete beginner, then you can follow my beginner-friendly video lessons below and learn to write 12 Chinese characters and related learning points. Our characters are: 一二三十土王人大天个太火

If you are not a beginner, then go ahead and pick 12 Chinese characters and commit to learning them for this challenge ^_^
