Learn the written language of stenography
long description:
Stenography is a lost art today. No one teaches it in high school or college, yet it is very practical and helpful in both college life for taking notes, and the business world. While most business dictation is done via a small recorder today, there are still instances and jobs where stenography is an extremely useful tool.
