Hello! Thank you for watching VisiHow! We have a set of two tutorials on how to write the English alphabet in the cursive format, which will allow us to connect letters and not have to lift our pen from the paper as many times. We will begin with the letter "A" and go through the beginning 14 letters in the first tutorial.

  4. 4
    The lowercase letter "b"
    .
    The letter is formed by starting on the line and making a large tall narrow curve. We come back around and curve slightly up and make a small tail that we connect to the next letter.

  5. 5
    The cursive "C" and "c"
    .
    The letters are made the same way as the printed "C" and "c" but slightly angled in both the capital and in the lowercase form.

  6. 6
    The capital cursive "D"
    .
