Here's our tutor Alison, giving you a free introduction to the first half of the Teeline alphabet.
Thousands of individuals have joined us to learn Teeline online - along with most major newspaper and media organisations, univiserities and colleges, along with international blue chip organisations.
There are ten online lessons. There is no need to buy any books or other resources - everything you need is included in the lessons. Have a look at the extract from our lesson one to see how it works and how easy it is to follow.
There are four levels of support available, learn on your own, learn with minimal support, learn with advanced support and a level for those who are already competent with the theory and want to build their speeds
Alison, our tutor, can support you via Zoom on some of our levels - these can be arranged at a time convenient to you and she will offer support and advice to meet your individual needs.
With our easy to follow theory beginners will be able to start writing words in Teeline shorthand straight away.
We also support those who are already competent at writing Teeline and want to build their speeds with support from our tutor and assessments via video calls.
Included in all of our packages is a five part Minute Taking Course where we cover different types of meetings, how to prepare to take minutes, listening skills, note taking skills and agenda and minute preparation.
Our course includes plenty of dictations, worksheets, videos, drills and more to help you learn Teeline. You can also get the support of our Tutor with Zoom lessons if you want.

Don't just take our word for it - here's what some of our students say:
"I have been practising my Teeline using your lessons for the past few months. The exercises are really good and I have seen an improvement in a very short time. This gives people like me the opportunity to practice using their shorthand when they want to. Alison and Liz have been brilliant. I was surprised to get replies so quickly when I had a query. I want to thank them both for their support and being there for me. Thank you!"
"I am so glad that I found you!! I love the fact that there is no software to install. Now I can practice my shorthand anywhere I go. I even checked in when I was on holiday and the weather wasn't so good. The hotel had wifi and I was able to do my daily practice! The more I look into it, the more I love it. Thanks again."
"What I liked the most about learning Teeline online is its flexibility and convenience. Online learning is very convenient since you can complete the assignments anywhere at any time on the gold level. What eased my fears about the online course was the help of a personal tutor who was amazing and so friendly."
The pandemic has meant that we are all having to work a bit differently. We are now offering you personal one to one lessons via Zoom (or Skype etc.,) with access to the online lessons and Platinum level support.
