LESSON NOTES


Stroke Order Rule 5: Outside Before Inside

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.

Example Characters

月, 多, 同, 风

 

Stroke Order Rule 6: Inside Before Closing

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.

  1. Start writing the frame, but don’t close it yet.
  2. Write the inside.
  3. Close it after the inside part is done.

Example Characters

日, 丹, 国, 回
