    Sangat Ji

    I remember using this resource as a child. Does anyone have anything similar?

    Basically it was a sheet of paper with the Gurmukhi alphabet on it but underneath every line was a space for people to copy what was above. The letters were usually written by hand (as opposed to computer generated) and sometimes had arrows showing the direction in which the pen should go.

    Anyone know what I'm talking about?

    Had to make a simple one for myself. If anyone is trying to learn the Gurmukhi script, let me know, I will post it.

    This is it!

    http://www.sikhism.us/sikh-sikhi-sikhism/21945-gurmukhi-primer.html

    I wonder if there is a way to copy just the post that is thread starter into this thread. Will see if it is possible. Or if not, maybe singhbj would not object if we merged that thread into this thread.

    You might also consider creating a collection of alphabet learning aids here. There is another one posted by another member. I will try to find it.

    Thank you Narayanjot. You're an angel!

    Here is my own humble submission....lol

    I noticed I could not, for the life of me, find something to actually help kids write the alphabet. So I made this (in about 2 minutes.) People can clearly see the letters and copy them underneath (between the lines.)

    After doing this so many times, the next step would be to try and write the whole alphabet from memory.

    This is a handwriting exercise for beginners.

    Erm, it's very err....basic.....::cool::

    Someone stuck a video of an old Powerpoint resource I made years ago online. Might help people who want to learn the Gurmukhi alphabet.

Since you're here... we have a small favor to ask...

More people are visiting & reading SPN than ever but far fewer are paying to sustain it. Advertising revenues across the online media have fallen fast. So you can see why we need to ask for your help. Donating to SPN's is vote for free speech, for diversity of opinions, for the right of the people to stand up to religious bigotry. Without any affiliation to any organization, this constant struggle takes a lot of hard work to sustain as we entirely depend on the contributions of our esteemed writers/readers. We do it because we believe our perspective matters – because it might well be your perspective, too... Fund our efforts and together we can keep the world informed about the real Sikh Sikhi Sikhism. If everyone who writes or reads our content, who likes it, helps us to pay for it, our future would be much more secure. Every Contribution Matters, Contribute Generously!
