Translation of manual


I’m a 16 year old guy from Denmark. I wanna learn shorthand cos I think it’s awesome and I’ll work hard enough to aquire at least 100wpm (200 wpm would be my final goal if I’ve got the skills, which I suppose it requries). I just started learning gregg anniversary a couple of weeks ago and have worked me way through the first chapter of the manual found on ‘angelfishy’. I’ve done a lot of practicing and found the ‘Fundamental Drills’ on the same site which is – correct me if I’m wrong – supposed to be some kind of ‘addon’ for the manual. A book only consisting of shorthand writing divided up into sections so you can read Exercise one which should pretty much cover what you’ve learned in Chapter 1 unit 2 – 4 in the manual. Awesome for practise but what if you just can’t figure out what it’s saying? There’s no ‘translation’ or anything in the back. Anyway, I’ve attached the – so far – two outlines which I just can’t figure out. First one is the first outline in picture 1. Second is the whole sentence in picture 2.
Please help, and also tell me if there is some kind of ‘translation’ out there.

  1. Welcome Jenkie. You're not the only 16 year old in the group. For some reason shorthand seems to be making a comeback, which we're all happy about.   Can't answer your question with certainty because I'm a DJS writer, but it shouldn't be long before one of our Anny writers answers.    

  2. Plate one is "They will drag the green lake."
    Plate two is "They are aware that this is a good country and that they will like this country."

    There is no key to it, correct. The idea is to make one think really hard about the outline. The more you think about an outline, the more you will recall it without hesitation, right? The old way was to eventually circle the outline you don't understand and ask the shorthand teacher the next day what it was. This group is the modern format of this interchange. 🙂
