The letter 'x' isn't used a lot, so read through this list several times. Come back to it at the end of the lesson if desired. And yes you will know which is the 'x' or 's'. Even if you don't write a slight slant for the 'x'. The context of the sentence or material will tell you which it is.
PAST TENSE This will become second nature to you when you write the disjoined dash at the end or not. If you are every unsure, don't hesitate, and write what you feel (I usually do the disjoined dash, but it's up to you).
BRIEF FORMS Notice the loop in the word 'tells'. It's just slightly longr then the loop in 'tell'. Because of the plural 's' on the end.
WRITING PRACTICE Even though you don't write until next week, read through the writing practice and 'write' shorthand in your mind. Try to picture the outlines for the words.
"Gregg Shorthand had achieved the most extraordinary success ever attained by any system in the history of shorthand." John Robert Gregg, 1922
