Sharing is caring!

  • Thank you for the examples. They were very helpful and pertinent to what I would say. I was wondering, though, if you could add the stroke order for the kanji for ningin, especially the gin part. It’s not clear to me how to write it.

    Thank you very much!

    • Thank you! Yes, stroke order can be challenging, but for the most part, you go from top to bottom and left to right. I just added a graphic with the stroke order for you. Enjoy!
