How to Practice

We recommend to do the following practice.

  1. First Row: Carefully imitate the shape of sample letters.
  2. Second Row: Write letters by occasionally looking the sample.
  3. Third Row: Write a letter without looking, then compare with the sample.

Refer grid lines to check the position of each stroke.

This one-time practice would be enough to get familiar with the shape of letters.

Repeat the practice to become a master of beautiful handwriting!
