Hi Denise: First of all congratulations if you can those nice letters, it is a hard work. I agree with Jura and Neal, an ink pen is a must for a good handwriting. In my case, as Secretary, had to learn Shorthand (symbols to take dictation and not used anymore - I think) and also had to practise Palmer Handwritting, so I struggled all the time in having a nice letter and also writing good symbols to be able to read them after. But I think that the most important thing is that your handwritting shows your personality, so just write as you feel more comfortable. Have you ever heard about this? how you write shows how you are, exactly that!!!! Also can show if you are sad, if you are happy, if.......many things of you, and don't worry for that!, ok? never ever! And also thanks for the effort in trying to write like we write in this side of the world; your handwritting in your language must be very nice too. Handwritting is expected to be clear, accurate and nice (that invites to read what you wrote). One more thing: for me it works to write all when learning a new language, I always remember all I write, can it work for you? maybe, who knows? but keep practising!!! Bye bye

Hi Denise Using the adinekirnberg font is probably a good idea for practising letter shapes for writing and spelling, but it is more an artistic calligraphy style than practical handwriting. I really like the aesthetic qualities of good calligraphy and it is beautiful as an art form in itself. However, it is only really useful in a practical sense for a few things, like book illustration or writing invitation cards. If you Google 'handwriting practice' you will find plenty of pages showing example scripts that you could choose to practice with. As Rhianne and Jura both say, a good pen is essential for effective handwriting. I like the gel pens too, because they allow you to write clearly and quickly. If I want to practice calligraphy, I use a fountain pen with an italic nib. Handwriting in western script is a very personal thing - everyone has their own style which they acquire over time. Once you have the letter shapes remembered, see how fast you can write sentences while still being able to read them. As you practice, your own style will develop.

It is not so popular to us. By the way, use a pen wherein its point is .5 or 0.7 .. For me, it is better... A gel pen too .. Sign-pen is different , ok ? hehe.. See you
