Fast writing has been a requirement down the ages. Egyptian and Roman scribes used shorthand in various guises for speed and secrecy. In England, shorthand was used from Elizabethan times and famous shorthand writers were Samuel Pepys and Charles Dickens. Then young, Isaac Pitman, squiggled out Eureka! in 1837 and the first Pitman system was born. He was just 24 years old! But although it was fast and elegant, it took the dedication of a saint to perfect, driving many an intelligent being to tears or chocolate!

In the 1960s Pitman 2000 provided a simplified version but then came the bliss of Teeline. Simpler still as it is based on spelling and alphabet adaptations rather than phonetics. Teeline is quick to grasp and after a few lessons you can be incorporating this in your daily routine. Teeline is now the most popular version for beginners.

Without shorthand I would not have been able

to take the notes, or write the story,

so thank you for teaching me Teeline!
