Have you ever tried to read something but gave up simply because the person who wrote it had bad handwriting?

Good handwriting is a skill that is learnt by practice and more practice at school and home.

There are many benefits of good handwriting. Teachers read the work of students that is well and neatly written. A good handwriting earns you some marks too! They, however, strain to read illegible handwriting and this might make you lose some marks.

When you grow up and you start looking for a job, a good handwriting will give you a better chance of getting a job than a poor handwriting. Some employers want people to write in their own handwriting. If yours is poor, the application may not even be read!

Good handwriting also makes revision easier. Sometimes it is hard even for the writer to read his or her own words because of writing badly. Strive to improve your handwriting.
