Old cursive style abounds with flourishes and loops, which is not practical for the beginning writer or for today's fast-paced life style. The New American Cursive® alphabet was developed with the beginning writer in mind:
Unnecessary strokes eliminated -- NAC® has from 5 to 31 fewer strokes than the current five most used cursive styles."T" & "F" capitals are printed forms to reduce confusion between them; printed capital "Z" is easier & more fun to make."M" & "N" have less retracing, allowing the writer to move forward on the page more fluidly. Aesthetically balanced length on the upper and lower extensions of the f, g, j, p, q, y & z make it easier to learn.
NAC natural-right slant is easier for beginners and left-handers. If the slant is too far right it can be difficult for lefties. Writing absolutely vertically is tiring and can slow down the writing.
