Besides, I'm left handed (almost ambidextrous), so it's a little hard to grab a brush with your right hand XD!

Yeah, though my chinese letters look very similar with any hand that I use. Just that my left hand is (a lot) faster XD

Actually when I was little I tried using the left hand and it was near-impossible, so my teacher told me to try using my right hand. When I was 17, I spent almost a whole year writing EVERYTHING with my right hand, it was really hard to keep up in class and when teachers looked at my homework most freaked out and thought I broke my hand. Anyway it was a lot of fun and lots of friends supported me, like 加油加油 every time I was pissed off. Why don't you try it :)?

Being chinese doesn't mean that one is necessarily good at it, in fact many of my classmates s*ck at it XD

(I'm half-chinese, the bad part is that I'm left-handed so it's hard to write sometimes -__-)

EDIT:
Yep, I'm ambidextrous, actually with my right hand I: play sports, grab scissors, write calligraphy
With my left hand: (Unfortunately) Write, eat, brush my teeth...

The only thing that I can do exactly the same with both hands is play ping-pong XD!

I just got through writing calligraphy and when i compared it with the chinese words i was copying, it looked no where as good! I'm just wondering....does anyone here do calligraphy too or is really good at it?


I spent three years with my grandparents when I was small, and so I am fluent in Mandarin and can write Chinese [calligraphy] really well. It's different though. Really, you don't have to write it well. As long as you know Pinyin, you can type it up on Chinese Word Processor.

I think it helps to have good handwriting too in another Asian language, maybe. I can also write Japanese, and since I can already write Chinese [calligraphy], I'm good at that too.

I'm ambidextrous too! But fortunately, I can do most things with both hands and I am use to it! I like to switch using my hands to write and stuff because otherwise my hands get tired, or when writing the ink smears on my hand!

i cant do it but calligraphy totally looks sick if you write down words with a lot of complex words or with a lot of strokes and you are neat enough. i tried calligraphy once and i can only do simple words like man and fire and stuff.
