On the one side x X X  people  who​​ would​​ say about​​ handwriting as an out of date way of​​ texting.​​ Evidently, today's children can grow up without need of​​ penning, using only computers, smartphones or tablets.​​ Moreover, some say that​​ teenagers​​ should spend their time exploring new technologies which may help them in their future. To demonstrate this,​​ they are giving​​ several examples like​​ rotary dial phones which we mostly used to buy, making the skill of using this equipment not important.​​ However, they agree that handwriting can X be applicable in several ways such as calligraphy.

On the one side,​​ there are​​ people who​​ claim​​ handwriting is an out-of-date way of typing. Evidently, today's children can grow up without need of​​ pens, using only computers, smartphones or tablets. Moreover, some say that​​ students​​ should spend their time exploring new technologies which may help them in their future. To demonstrate this,​​ they give several examples,​​ one being rotary dial phones​​ which​​ we don’t own, making the skill of using this equipment obsolete. However, they agree that handwriting can be useful in several ways one being calligraphy without which, design would be flat and simple.

As an alternative opinion, people say that handwriting is still important for children, helping them to develop brain activities.​​ Recent scientific research​​ have​​ discovered a significant increase in​​ X​​ cognitive function of participants who​​ was​​ using handwriting tools. This effect is similar to other​​ motor function's developers​​ such as LEGO, origami and toys. Moreover, some children have aptitude in​​ penning​​ rather than texting using​​ keyboard, enabling them to make lecture notes quickly.

Recent scientific research​​ has​​ discovered a significant increase in​​ the cognitive functions of​​ participants who​​ were​​ using handwriting tools. This effect is similar to other​​ ways to refine motor skills​​ such as LEGO, origami and toys. Moreover, some children have aptitude in​​ writing by hand​​ rather than​​ typing​​ using​​ a keyboard, enabling them to make lecture notes quickly.

In conclusion, both sides​​ are providing​​ logical arguments to support their opinion​​ which​​ is important for children education process.​​ Personally, I believe that children should develop handwriting because it is​​ notably​​ important for their motor skill, memory and,​​ from​​ my experience, sometimes handwritten notes are more useful.

In conclusion, both sides provide logical arguments to support their opinion​​ on which skills are more​​ important for children’s education. Personally, I believe that children should develop handwriting because it is​​ an essential step in developing​​ for their motor skills, memory and,​​ in my experience,​​ sometimes handwritten notes are still​​ a more useful way to memorise content and note things down quickly.

Would Vs Used to​​ 

  • Would feels nostalgic

  • Would is always related to an action never a state

  • Would means multiple times, just like used to

  • Ex. Me and granny would pick mushrooms in the forest

  • Never used in the negative.​​
