I'm sorry to inform you that in Italy we (yes, I'm Italian) firstly learn how to write in block letters and later (after 1-2 years) it is introduced the cursive way of writing. First grade schools teach how to write in block since the first year (when children are 6 years old) and they switch to cursive during the second/third year(children are 7-8 years old). — Preceding unsigned comment added by 184.108.40.206 (talk) 18:02, 6 November 2014 (UTC)
