Ms. Lili, I have a question. Do you think it is acceptable to model my Chinese handwriting after non-brush styles? It’s like the “Sans Serif” version of Chinese characters. I was thinking of this because I prefer writing with my ball point pen, and I find that uneven stroke widths do not suit my pen very well. What are your thoughts? My example font would be Noto Sans CJK. 谢谢!

Lili, you have devised an ingenious language learning curriculum for the teaching of introductory Chinese. My main concern was how does one learn Chinese characters. The interactive process is based on sound learning techniques and is quite versatile in its approach. Thank you.
