Home » Why choose Teeline Online?


As well as Teeline being the easiest form of shorthand to learn - learning with us is just as simple. Easy to sign up and join - easy to learn. One off payment fee lasts a lifetime - no further costs are involved - no timescales. Our simply laid out ten lessons will take you through the theory whether you are a complete beginner or whether you want to refresh your skills.

No Brainer!!

This may sound a little obvious but why pay a large amount of money for something you can use for a limited time? With us you pay a much smaller amount just once, and can then use the course for the rest of your life.... crazy isn't it? We are not here to exploit you or take all your money.... we want to cover our costs and make a little bit of profit as our reward for providing such a good service!

Flexible - like no other!

Our course is so flexible.... you choose what you want to do and when you want to do it and how much support you want us to give you. If you would like more support, just upgrade for the difference in price between the levels. Stop and start whenever you wish - even if you have a timetable that we have arranged for you – you're in charge and you can change your targets whenever you like. You don't even need to be at a computer to do the lessons - you can download the dictations and print the PDF copy of the lesson to take with you.

We are so helpful!

We are here to help you - as much as you need us. If you join the Silver level then we will leave you to it. If you join our Gold level then we will gladly receive your end of lesson assignments whenever you wish - we will mark them and return them with helpful comments and suggestions. If you join our Platinum level we will provide you with a timetable, remind you when your assignments are due and can give you extra exercises and dictations when we feel you are ready for them.

Before you join we are also keen to help you understand anything that is not clear BEFORE you sign up .... we know the www can be a daunting place and you may be worried about signing up for something you can't see or touch or even speak to. We are happy to call any UK potential students to put their minds at rest and answer any questions you may have. If you are outside of the UK we would be happy to correspond by email until you are sure you are 100% happy.

We are approved

You will find that there are some sites offering to teach you Teeline shorthand that do not have the right to do so. We have been approved by the owners of the copyright for Teeline shorthand The Teeline Partnership - and we are happy to put you in touch them. Teeline is not allowed to be sold or printed online without their approval.

Proven track record.

Apart from being approved we have also been running our course for a number of years now. Please be aware of new organisations starting up, taking your money and disappearing - not renewing their domains or web hosting - you have been warned!!


A teacher is always available to give you personal support - you can send your work for marking and it will be returned to you complete with feedback, extra exercises and suggestions for writing your Teeline more quickly and more easily. We offer help with any issues as you go along via email, Skype or even an old fashioned phone call! More details »

We use PayPal as online payment solution. If you would prefer to pay by BACS or cheque - just let us know, and we can also of course arrange an invoice for your business/organisation as you wish.
