I'm not sure if there is a truly quick method. No matter what, it will take some practise. I know that many people have luck with the Handwriting Wiithout Tears programs though - especially with kids who initially struggled with printing and handwriting. I have used some of their curriculum at home with our kids, and one of our children had a teacher who used the program in her classroom. You would need to check and make sure that their methods are acceptable to South African schools though, because in an effort to make things easier they don't form all the letters in the usual way. They do ship internationally, but I have no idea what the rates are like.

Hello Chet - we live in South Africa and I was just wondering if there is a quick method to teach an 8 year old to develop his ability to write legibly and neatly. Our school term ends in December (which is our summer) and if we can prove to the school that his neatness etc has improved he will pass the academic year. Best regards J

I'm not sure what you're asking. I found out this week though that cursive writing is not part of the curriculum here any more.
