The most widely used Tigrinya fonts in everyday print can be very confusing for handwriting because most of the fonts use artful letter formation. This book reinforces manuscript handwriting practice by using simple strokes and horizontal guidelines to assist students on how to practice Tigrinya alphabet writing.
This colorful workbook contains several worksheets for letter tracing and writing. Each of letter contains pronunciation guide and simple stroke styles for handwriting. After every four or five letter practice pages, there are review and exercise sections for further write and read test. The review sections contain both words and illustrated figures for more handwriting exercises. The words appearing in the review sections have been carefully chosen in keeping with the relevance to the practice sections. We recommend working in pencil rather than pen as this will allow for erasing and repeated use for letter writing practice. The book is designed to be a supplementary workbook. Though the book uses instructional guide in English, we also advise students to seek Tigrinya native-speaker guidance on pronunciation and intonation.
