Correct stroke order of ㅌ.

Bonjour

What is the stroke order of ㅌ that is generally accepted by Koreans as being correct? I looked around for stroke order diagrams online, and there were two different ways of writing ㅌ that kept coming up.

One of the patterns is (1) the top horizontal line, (2) the middle horizontal line, (3) an L shaped stroke comprising the vertical line and the bottom horizontal line. The other pattern is (1) the top horizontal line, (2) the L shaped stroke, (3) the middle horizontal line.

Are these both generally accepted by Koreans, or is only one "officially" deemed as being correct?

(I have no idea why I wrote bonjour in the Korean section)

Actually, Korean letters' stroke order is not defined officially. However, native Koreans learn specific ONE stroke order in elementary school. So most people write ㅌ in the first pattern, that 1.top line 2.middle line 3. L.

you dont have to take "stroke orders" super super literally, i just write ㄷ in one stroke and add a line to make ㅌ. no one is going to find it illegible.

It really doesn't matter so long as the end result is the same.

It doesn't really matter how you write it. However in calligraphy you would write the vertical line first and then the top horizontal line then the one under it and in the end the one on the bottom.
