Verder met Alfaschrift is a writing course for non-Dutch speakers who have never learned how to write. Students learn and practice letters and numbers, train their writing mechanics and learn to write by means of functional writing exercises involving authentic material such as cards, forms and shopping lists.
In Alfaschrift, students were introduced to the Latin alphabet and learned to recognise and write lower-case letters. In Verder met Alfaschrift, students learn to write fluent and legible block letters. The students are taught to use a smaller handwriting than in Alfaschrift: they repeat the lower-case letters and learn how to write numbers and upper-case letters. Writing mechanics are trained by having the students write corners and diagonal lines.
Verder met Alfaschrift is designed to help students learn the Latin alphabet in a mature, simple and efficient manner.
