In this time where most people are used to typing instead of writing, is it possible that people get tired of it and get back in writing?
Today, there is a debate onto what should be taught first, typing or writing. We always recommend that you learn both because they have their own purpose and medium used.

Absolutely! I am personally someone who enjoys the physical act of handwriting, and I learn better when I write something, too, so I can’t see myself ever transitioning to typing full time (although, believe me, I type a LOT).
There are plenty of places I prefer handwriting over typing: to do lists, journaling, writing a letter/card, taking notes in a class, etc. I also tend to flip back and forth when working on more formal writing. Personally, I prefer to type out a draft, print it, and edit it by hand. There’s something about physically holding my writing that I can’t let go! However, when drafting, I definitely prefer the efficiency of typing over handwriting.
It’s all a personal choice, and I can’t see that either will be going away any time soon, so I’m not worried about having to choose!
