Let’s learn how to write ん (1 stroke).
Please take a look at the following picture.

ん has 1 stroke.
Please get a piece of paper and start practicing!
Look at my writing carefully and copy it. Write it till your hand remembers how to write it.

Ok, now let’s move on to ン (2 strokes).
Please look at the picture below.

Do the same practice as you did with ん.

Many people think Katakana ン looks similar to Katakana ソ.
Look at the following picture and compare the two.

The big difference is that when you write ン the 2nd stroke goes from bottom to top while ソ the 2nd stroke goes from top to bottom.
