In 2013, we wrote about the hard work of Reinaert Albrecht and his effort to create a stroke order font for Chinese. While such fonts have existed for years for the Japanese language, unfortunately us Chinese learners had no such resource to work with.
Creating a stroke order font is a massive task indeed, and when we first discovered Reinaert’s work, it only covered a few hundred characters from HSK 1 and 2.
Recently however, Reinaert got in touch to let us know that a new version of the font is now available, and it covers all the characters from HSK 1, 2, 3 and 4. That’s a really good chunk of some of the most commonly used characters in Chinese and definitely something learners can take advantage of if they are interested in learning how write characters correctly.
