In this Chinese character lesson we will learn Group 3 of Chinese Stroke Order Rules, and see some example Characters that apply these two rules.
Outside Before Inside, 先外后内.
This rule applies to characters that have an outside frame or liner, but aren’t entirely enclosed by the frame.
月, 多, 同, 风
Inside Before Closing, 先外后内再封口
This applies when a character or a part of a character is completely enclosed by a “frame”. We’ll start from the outside, move to inside, and then close it as the last step.
日, 丹, 国, 回
