Learn Chinese in China


Instructional videos on handwriting

Recommended Posts


Here are some instructional videos that I find helpful.

This is a playlist showing how one would write some basic strokes in 楷書 using a brush and a fountain pen. It's in Mandarin.

This is a playlist on the arrangement of components in some characters. It doesn't cover very many characters, but it gives an introduction to what one might pay attention to regarding placement of components. It's in Mandarin.

The series 《每日一題每日一字》 provides a lot excellent and detailed instruction. The instruction is aimed at those using a brush, but a lot of it also applies to more common writing instruments.

Episode 1-50

Episode 51-100

Episode 101-365

They are in Mandarin.

Why don't I link to videos in English? It's because I haven't found any that are satisfactory.
