But.....what if it actually works?

I see a lot of pooh-poohing of the idea, claims that there are no shortcuts, etc.

What if it actually makes learning Morse faster and easier?

Does any of us know enough about how people learn skills to say that it cannot work?

Who would that be?

Anyone who has studied developmental psychology, clinically or otherwise. Also, most informed educators.

How people learn is a central topic of scientific investigation in our culture.

And beyond scientific or academic study, many people are aware of the importance of focus, relaxation, personal interest,
enjoyment, repetition and social setting.

EE:  Well said. I worked in a power plant for 22 years and then a power center (The "center" also housed 5 large steam generators) for 16 years. Along with operating I also trained men on a daily basis for 8 years.  After that I 'unofficially' trained men because I am one of those guys that had to know what was between the "button" and what it controlled. 

Prior to that I was responsible for a platoon of GIs. So although I haven't professional training in teaching, I have a pretty good background in knowing how people learn.

AXW: I only mentioned "social setting" and I neglected to specify a "a good teacher" or, even better, "a great teacher."

Your comment brought to mind memories of the many good and great teachers I've run across in all the different jobs
I've worked at.

Maybe the teacher is the most vital aspect of learning.

So much for all those "best" computer programs.
