    There are just too many variations of English cursive writing for me to direct you to a definitive text or website that will help you decode those letters. I would suggest asking for help from a native English speaker.
    I am a native speaker and teacher of English to native speakers, and I can't read about a third of what my students write. The computer keyboard has eliminated penmanship classes from almost all American curricula.
    Also, judging by some of the "text speak" garbage I get, the keyboard is far from being the salvation of written language.

    Read them as often as you can, and then no one will believe you can not read them.

    I remember mandatory classes in Cyrillic with ink and quill (steel not feather :>)). It was painful for all parties involved especially for those who had to retake a complete year for the sake of bad handwriting.
