Best Answer

calligraphy or traditional Chinese text, has been used for centuries, and the technique on how to paint or write the symbols was passed on through generations. Students who attend school there are expected to learn thousands of characters by the time they pass to middle school. This style has been the same since ancient times, but an improved, easy-to-use version of calligraphy, called simplified Chinese, in now taught and popular, because its easier to draw. This is used in most computer-based texts.
