Chinese characters are one of the earliest forms of written language in the world and are still in use today. There are more than 47000 Chinese characters that have evolved during history of China. From Small Seal Characters to Regular Script and now Simplified Chinese characters (Hanzi) used today in Mainland China, the art of writing is an integral of Chinese culture.

This course, Introduction to Writing Calligraphy, aims at giving opportunities to learn and practice simple Chinese characters to enhance your learning of the language and also provide a kinaesthetic learning environment. For those who are not learning Chinese Mandarin, this is an exciting course where you discover the art of writing current everyday life Chinese characters.

How will I be taught?

The language tutor will use a variety of teaching methods including demonstrations, one to one guidance, group discussions and critiques. You will work individually and in small groups, exploring the methods of writing simple Chinese characters. The tutor will give feedback throughout the session.

What do I need to bring with me?

Students will need to buy Chinese calligraphy brush, ink & paper, prior to the workshop.

What can I do next?

There are Chinese Mandarin language courses of different levels available, the tutor will be able to advise. Browse onto for Calligraphy and Chinese Brush Painting courses.

What do I need to join the course

This Introductory course is for students with no previous knowledge or those with a little basic practice of writing characters or have some previous knowledge of Chinese Mandarin.
The course will suit learners of Chinese Mandarin very well, but also those who are interested particularly in reading and writing some Chinese Characters, perhaps in view to join a calligraphy or Chinese brush painting course, or become learners of Chinese Mandarin themselves.
