Q: How can I learn to write Chinese characters online?

A: We use shared online whiteboard technology available with a number of conferencing/teaching software, so that the teacher can demonstrate writing and then watch the student attempt to write, or guide the student stroke by stroke to start with.

Q: I’ve never learned Chinese before, is this course too difficult for me?

A: No, you can start as a beginner. Textbooks and material  use pinyin, English translations and pictures to explain the characters which are easy to understand.

Q: Is the course about traditional or simplified characters?

A: Simplified characters. These are easy to write and use and are used in daily communications in modern China, but of course have their roots in the older often more complicated traditional characters.

Q: Is this course good for those who have already learnt HSK1 or 2?

A: Yes. If you have studied up to HSK 2, you will find many of these characters are familiar to you. Practsing writing and acquiring this skill will help you to memorise more characters and use them properly. This is a good foundation for studying at HSK 3 level and beyond.
