Welcome to LLTT

Shorthand is a fundamental skill for all journalists.

Since 2020, LLTT's YouTube Channel has provided Teeline shorthand lessons taught by highly-qualified university lecturers who are passionate about Teeline.

In addition to its well-received Beginners Series, the Speed Development sessions will deepen your understanding of word groupings and build confidence with dictation. To date, LLTT has also produced 61 videos in its Exam Series that simulate what you’ll encounter on examination day and there are 370 (and counting) audio dictations available.

Whether you're interested in how to learn Teeline shorthand, need revision guidance or just want to successfully pass your NCTJ shorthand exams, LLTT can help.
