The Traditional Chinese Character of Number Five

Last time, we wrote the character, . We have gone through the Traditional Chinese characters of some numbers from one to ten of various number of strokes now. We will go through the rest in the coming few articles. The subject of this time is the Traditional Chinese character for number five, 五.

It is a simple Chinese character with four simple strokes that we have used in previous articles.

How to write this simple Chinese character

The first stroke is a simple horizontal stroke. So, it is simply the number one and it looks like this:

The first stroke

The second stroke is a vertical stroke that we have used a lot of time. With the second stroke, it becomes:

The third stroke is a bit more complicated. It starts with a horizontal stroke from left to right before it drops to form a connecting vertical stroke. Now it becomes:

The finishing and the fourth stroke is again a horizontal stroke at the bottom.

So four strokes but they are all simple ones. It is again an easy to write Traditional Chinese character.

So, you learn one more, with ease.

Thanks for reading. I will go through another simple Traditional Chinese character of a number next time. I encourage you to keep practising in the meantime before the next post comes.
