Before criticizing my post being in the wrong section or whatsoever, I want to say: within my knowledge, I judged this to be the most reliable platform for this question.

If I am banned from the forum, or you must move my question or close it, please answer my question to the best of your ability before doing so. I want to learn English.

Is there anyone who can provide a website/link or an explicit set of instructions on how to improve penmanship?

This question came from our site for linguists, etymologists, and serious English language enthusiasts.

  • What sort of writing do you want to do? – StoneyB Jul 8 '14 at 1:28
  • Something like The Palmer Method? – Elliott Frisch Jul 8 '14 at 1:32

  • Handwriting -- of any sort -- is a personal matter, rather like one's voice, which can be recognized and understood easily. The main thing is practice (or, alternatively, good typing ability and an extremely good set of fonts). Like any drawing skill, it's a matter of training hand and eye together. Find the letters (52 of them, at least) that you prefer to be your versions, and practice them all until you are satisfied with the results in any combination. There is ample room for creativity and legibility. – John Lawler Jul 8 '14 at 2:13
  • If you want to learn English, you might enjoy the help of English Language Learners. English Language & Usage (this site) is not so focused on helping learners. – Drew Jul 8 '14 at 2:17
  • the Graphics Design.SE site has a question on resources for learning calligraphy which may be of value. You might explore that site to see whether it would accept the question. And this question on the Personal Productivity site has some suggestions. – StoneyB Jul 8 '14 at 3:15
  • Stoney, thanks very much for your reply. I read the two links you provided - the graphic design and personal productivity site - and I'm more clear knowing what I really want. I want to write legibly so everyone can read my writing. I'll start with kid's writing softschools.com/handwriting/alphabets/letter_b_worksheets/… I am disgusted by my writing at times so thanks for everyone's inputs. Like to hear more elementary writing improvement suggestions. – user59768 Jul 9 '14 at 6:54
