HINTS HOW TO DRAW CHINESE CHARACTERS

If you're new to the Chinese language, writing Chinese characters can be harder than it looks. It is not sufficient to simply make a drawing that resembles the desired character not in real life nor in the iPhone's Chinese keyboard. You have to draw the correct strokes in the correct direction and in the correct order. That's what makes Dragon Scribe so challenging! The good news is that if you draw the characters correctly, the iPhone's Chinese keyboard is very good at recognizing them. Dragon Scribe is a fun way to help you practice drawing Chinese characters quickly and correctly.

Here are some basic rules to help you draw Chinese characters:

- Generally speaking, you should draw characters from the upper left to the lower right.

- Horizontal strokes usually proceed vertical strokes.

- For characters that look like something drawn within something else, you generally start from the outside and work your way in.
