Learning how to typeIf you don't know how to type, that's good news.
There are two ways of dealing with this - copy on paper, or use Just Learn Morse Code to the full extent to get your
Copy on paperUse the program like everybody else, except write down what you hear using a pencil and paper. You'll rate
your own performance, and this is what Koch had his students do. They still saved a lot of time
compared to those learning by means of traditional methods.
Your BONUS outcomeThe other alternative is going for your BONUS outcome. In addition to learning Morse code, you will efficiently
learn how to type.
Koch's method is an effective way of learning how to type as well as learning Morse code. As you start out with
only two characters, you can easily locate them on the keyboard. Again, Koch's method dictates that whenever
you get 90% or more correct, you add another character. This works just as well for learning the keyboard as it
does for learning Morse code.
Even if you're not at all interested in Morse code, this is an efficient way to learn how to type.
Also, as you'll know Morse code whether you're interested in it or not, you may even find that your next
mobile phone allows you to
enter text messages
at incredible speed, using... You guessed it: Morse code.
