This lesson recap:
Long O vowel (O E)
ex: Goat, Stole, Soak
When (WH), Where (WR), Which (WEU), Whether (WHR), With (W), Yes (KWRE)
Also, there are two more briefs we learned. Many and Can. Both are not as simple as the others above.
Many can be used two ways. "How many were there?" and "Many men are strong." Many in a phrase like "how many?" is ending M (PL). Many as a word "many men" is M(PH) A E N (PB). Kinda confusing I know.The brief Can is the letter K. It could be written on either side, depending if you are saying "can you?" (Beg. K) or "you can."(ending K (BG))
V (S R)
Q (K W)
G (T K P W)
J (P B L G)
We now can write words:
Quiz, Phase, Face, Grown, Grass, Quite, Wore, Gear, Jazz, Dodge...
The sentences portion of the audio is question/answer format again.
Sample of sentences:
Where did the vine grow?
The green grass was quite thick.
I started today and am already on the sentences part. I have a hard time keeping up. I am happy with my progress for the day. The letters and arbitraries go fast. The words in this lesson are not as difficult for me.
This lesson is teaching me to listen to the sound, not spell it like it should be. Example, Phase is not stroked with a P letter and then a H letter. No, It is a F sound. So the difference between Phase and Face is the ending Z or S . Does that make sense?
It is difficult to write a recap of the lesson. I don't want to confuse people, but it is confusing in itself. While reading the manual and using my machine it makes sense, but to verbally tell someone about it, it sounds absolutely crazy . If you are not a steno student and are totally confused, that is normal. Once you get started, it will make sense. I promise.
As always, I will post updates as needed.
I finished the sentences portion of the audio. I passed with 100% twice. There were lots of 1 error runs but I wanted 100%.
This lesson, was not as hard for me. I can't explain it. But I am sure the next one will be more difficult.
