  1. 3

    This course starts off by talking about 11 basic strokes but three strokes are not discussed until after the types of characters are discussed and then a distinction is made between 5 fundamental strokes and 26 derivatives. Also the last unit of this course is a repeat of an earlier unit. This course could benefit from some fine tuning.
