I will be really grateful if an experienced teacher can answer me.
I would like to know what you would say to your student whose hand writing is legible but not nice?
Do you mention it to him/her at all? Is it really important in American/British culture for one to have a nice, academic-looking hand writing or it is just something we, non-native language learners, are concerned about?
At last, what is the phrase (most probably there should be a fixed, or popular one) used in these cases?
Thanks for your help, I truly appreciate your professional comments.
I'm not sure what you mean by "academic-looking" handwriting. I'm sure there are plenty of "academics" who have unattractive handwriting, the same way that there are non-academics who write beautifully!
