I just read a neat article on here regarding learning shorthand using the Functional Method. I am curious in whether or not there are Functional Method books for the Simplified system? The article I read on here was referring to Anniversary. After doing some thinking I can see how using this method could possibly be the better way to learn shorthand. Not sure if it’s just coincidence or not, but since the last couple of lessons I’ve been doing in my Simplified manual are lots of reading passages that it seems like I’m comprehending more of it. Maybe because my brain is working harder by deciphering the written shorthand words?
