Free Brief Form Drill Sheets!

Hey guys, I just found another great way to exploit Andrew’s website.  Drang your mouse to highlight the brief form list for your version…
…and choose “print selection” in the browser menu to print a handy drill sheet for keeping your recall rate spit-shiney perfect!  Just fold over the shorthand answer on the right to quiz yourself.  I am going to try and run through it once a day.

  1. I remember reading somewhere about a way to do this just like your suggesting.   You fold over the shorthand side and write it in shorthand from the long hand list.  Then take away that paper.  Using the shorthand outline, write it in longhand (transcribing it).  Then cover or fold over the shorthand and from the longhand write it in shorthand.  And so on. I guess you could use 2 steno pads for this.  The first/left hand column for the shorthand and the right hand/second column for the longhand version.  Then just cover up what you don't want to see. Did this make sense? Debbi

  2. All done with the Simplified list. It now has the outlines, though not written by Rader, it is written by Anniversary plate-writer Mrs. Winifred Richmond. It is true that she never wrote many of these outlines, but I used a little photo editing action to produce the non-Anniversary-based outlines.

    Check out the new Esperanto brief forms page, too. I did the same thing as with Simplified, but took Mrs. Richmond's writing to another extreme (she never wrote in Esperanto). It was a fun puzzle to create many of these brief forms. For instance, "chiam" is "ch m", and since I didn't see that anywhere in 5000 most-used outlines, I just took "much" and rotated it 180째, and it turned out perfectly. Or, I would mix outlines like for kvankam ("kvank"), I used "cover" and "bank." 🙂
