It is good to learn something new each day

So that was a great day teaching some Calligraphy.

Simply just doing the joined-up writing

It was great to write a different G from that which I normally do.

It is the tactile way of holding the pencil

then applying creatively on the paper

it was found that the children writing

rather than typing on the computer

tended to remember and apply the language later better

Calligraphy along with Duolingo brings great success

Have most people now abounded calligraphy

Or do people have differing opinions as to the effect

I am taking courses in both Chinese and Russian. The most helpful thing about them is that they are getting me to write. It feels as if it is unlocking parts of my brain that duolingo couldn't reach. I feel as if my learning has accelerated as a result.

Writing Chinese characters is very soothing too. Russian not so much, but I am getting better at it. I just don't seem to be able to make my hand write a couple of the letters properly. I mess them up every time. Mainly г ч р. They just look like random squiggles.

I keep a notebook by my side when doing my Duolingo lessons and write unfamiliar words or any word I am having trouble remembering. I make a point on writing in cursive. This lets me "kill two birds with one stone."

First, it really helps me remember those words and their correct spelling. Typing on a keyboard does not have the same effect. Second, because I am writing those words slower and more neatly, I get the benefit to improve my cursive writing that lately has become a bit sloppy.

So, I agree with you that a bit of calligraphy can aid your learning a new language, even if that language uses a well-known alphabet (I am learning Spanish at this moment).

It has been proven scientifically writing in cursive enhances the neuron capacity of the brain and keeps it functioning much better for longer. I have thought of taking up calligraphy but for now, with my hectic schedule, I simply write as much as possible using my left hand and in cursive. I am right handed.

I learned at an early age I would never be a calligriphister.

I can't even read my own writings myself. But I learned neither could the teacher and if the basic outline of my exposition was reasonable she suspected the indiscernible scribbling was worth a good grade.

It also concealed my complete inability to spell. I feel so sorry for people who always spell words the same way. With me it's an adventure solved by going in a different path every time. I can spell most words in such amazingly different ways it brings tears to the eyes of English teachers.

Thank God for spellchek!
