I'd assume that chinese language learners practice regularly their calligraphy. In comparison writting in cyrillic cursive is a piece of cake.

If you assist a language course or take an official exam you'll be expected to complete stuff in writing. Unless you take your laptop to class, you'll also have to write down your notes.

Also, as Edlefou has mentioned, you will see cursive script in many places and if you are not used to it you'll have a hard time reading it (I remember struggling with the t's and m's which look quite similar).

Overall, I don't see why you'd choose not to learn it unless you're only aiming to pick up the very basics.

You see cursive a lot - especially in Ukraine. I noticed it on menus, outside buildings and in some train stations. Handwriting is quite hard to read if you haven't practiced it - it's not like english; some letters look completely different.
