Who is it for?

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. See the outline lesson content below.

Alongside of our ten online Teeline shorthand lessons we have dictations ranging from 30 words per minute (wpm) to 120 words per minute (wpm). The dictations are classified easy, medium and hard and range from 1 minute through to 4 minutes. There are around 25 dictations at each speed. As you go through the increased speeds, the number of words in each passage will increase and therefore you will be adding new words to your dictation.

Unlimited Access

Unlimited access means you've access to the site as often and for as long as you wish. There are no restrictions or timescales on any of the course levels and you've access for life on whichever level you choose. That means you can use it when you wish and even come back at any time to refresh your skills when you've completed the ten lessons. You complete the course at your own pace. With our Silver and Gold courses, we won't hassle you or set you any deadlines. If you prefer to have a timetable to stick to and helpful reminders when your assignments are due for assessment, you will find our Platinum course is the one for you. We understand that there may be a need to take a break from the course and return at a later date and if that happens, we can offer suggestions of the best way to revise before moving on.

How long will it take?

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.
