Can you read this? Did you take this class?


I was so proficient in this that I received a certificate at graduation! LOL!   Most kids don't even know what this is anymore.

  • I didn't realize that shorthand was different than cursive- I thought they were the same thing
    so obviously- no, didn't know what it was and cannot read it!

  • I hear that PMS. Makes me sad. You shouldn't go through life without the torture of getting your fingers stuck in a manual typewriter.... Let alone learning those cursive letters.

  • No. They do not use it anymore louise. Funny thing is, I really can't read this anymore, but I can still write. We were taught to sit in front of the TV with a notebook and write. I used to do it for hours on end.
