It's flexible, it's accredited, you can work at your own pace.
Our course is suitable for complete beginners and those wishing to refresh their skills. There are ten lessons - each lesson is set out in a logical and clear way so that you can complete the theory and with regular practice, achieve speeds of 80wpm to 120wpm. The lessons include drill sheets to print off to practice writing, theory exercises to test your progress and speed dictations.
By the end of your first lesson, you will have covered the alphabet and you can start to write simple words and sentences. In fact, we encourage and help you to start using it straight away with hints and advice on how to include it in your day to day writing. You should find that within a very short time you are writing confidently and accurately and building your speed.
If you've done Teeline before, you can do the lessons in any order you wish and go back and revise as necessary.

There are ten lessons in total, including two that help you to consolidate the theory and concentrate on building speed with relevant dictations. With regular practice you can complete the course, writing at speed in ten weeks. This is if you're able to work on the lessons for about an hour a day, one lesson per week in order to start building speed. And of course - we are always available at the end of an email to help you and to answer any questions you may have. We are here to help you achieve your goals, whatever they may be, wherever in the world you may be.
A timetable can be set for you if you join our Platinum level - we can then send you reminders when you need to submit your assignments. Some people find this level more suitable as they need the occasional nudge to get going.
