how to write the letters of the alphabet, in block and cursive forms
This is a page designed to help teach students the alphabet. Each letter of the alphabet is available in upper- and lowercase, and each has an animation showing how to write it correctly.
There are three styles - basic, block, and cursive. Basic is the style taught for complete beginners in Japanese textbooks. Block is what I think is taught in most English-speaking countries. Cursive is based on the cursive style taught in Japanese penmanship books.

This page is an interactive vector graphic image known as an SVG.
Internet Explorer only recently added support for SVG, but still lacks a lot of the required elements for full interactivity. As a result, this page will not display correctly in Internet Explorer. It should work in all other browsers, however.
