    I don't like writing negative reviews. I have waited weeks to write this. This was such a disappointment and a waste of money. Very little content and you don't come away with anything that you can use. This probably could have been put into one of her other classes. The alternate letter forms are letters you should have learned how to join in the lower case letters class (I am assuming she covered this). She writes out approximately three to four capitals letters, but no real flourishing.
