comment Is it easier to learn Chinese after learning Japanese or vice versa?
@NullUserException, you can understand a few things if you can read Chinese characters, even if you only know simplified ones. I remember I could guess where was the bathroom because the name had the characters "洗手间" (although in a different order).

comment Is there an authoritative reference for the stroke order of simplifed characters?
hmm... I'm not seeing any mention of a disagreement on Wikipedia's page. It's written that some people forget the correct stroke order but it doesn't mean there's no correct stroke order. You're right that 现代汉语通用字笔顺规范 is most likely the reference although it's quite old, so I was hoping a more up to date one would be available.

I heard about this book before but it's 15 years old. Sometime I show stroke orders from this book to Chinese people and they told me they learn something different at school. Is this book still current or is there a more recent edition (can't seem to find any)? Thanks for the traditional Chinese reference, I'll have a look.
