Although most of Helinika’s visitors have no problem typing the Greek letters, they often find it difficult to write those letters on paper. That is why we prepared a short video on our YouTube channel that you can use to mimic a common writing style for the Greek letters. It goes without saying that there are many more handwritings out there and you can develop yours with a lot of practice. Writing in a different alphabet is not easy but it is definitely worth the effort!
