Hanja for Cimi: 1, 2, 3

This week, Cimi and I are learning the Hanja for 1, 2, and 3.

1 One 일

2 Two 이

3 Three 삼

You will note that each of these has a horizontal stroke.


As an artist, Cimi probably has a better grasp of how to hold the pen and apply pressure so that the brush strokes look like this diagram.  I am still at the more basic stage of trying to figure out how long the lines are within the square that I am drawing each Chinese character.

We are taking this slow, so for now just take note that you should start from the top and work your way down.  (Makes sense, when you think of wet ink.)

Here are some grids to practice writing 一, 二, and 三.

Cimi, you might like this video that described Chinese numbers 0 – 9, to hear the sound. For now, I am just interested in the written hanja characters.  Remember, the same character is pronounced differently in China, Japan, and Korea.  I’ll stick to Korean. 🙂

    Learning first tones, too? Wow, this will be a challenge. Understatement of the year.
