In calligraphy the term for alphabet is ‘hand’ with the main hands being Uncial, Gothic, Italic, Foundational and Copperplate. There are literally hundreds of variations of each hand.

Essentially the Uncial hand is a good place to start for students new to calligraphy but not necessarily so. Progression can be made upon completion of each course to the next module.
