The way children are taught to write varies in Germany from county to county, which is why I recommend students to go back to the beginning and (if you were taught in a German primary school) relearn  cursive script letter by letter; how letters are joined up; and how much space to leave between words. This will give your handwriting a good appearance and legibility.

You may well need to practise handwriting as your hand muscles may not be used to hold a pen. Keep your hand loose and avoid cramp. If you want to follow this tuition I very much recommend that you use lined paper. Buy writing blocks or pads suitable for first year school children. Office paper doesn’t always have a smooth surface and may make smooth writing with an inkpen difficult. Buy a writing block with one bold detachable lined paper which can be positioned under each sheet in turn.

The Fountain Pen (inkpen).

Please write with an inkpen. It doesn’t need to be an expensive one. Any school pen will do. Find one that suits you best. Later you can decide according to your personal taste which type of nib suits you best. Left handed students can obtain special pens. While following this tutorial please don’t use a ball-point pen as they are more difficult to control and can slip.
