Thread: Efficiency of Koch in higher lessons

In my opinion the efficiency of Koch-method in higher lessons is not so good.

When I was at lesson 10, I could learn my newest 10 letters very good.
But at lesson 28 (which is, where Iím now) I feel only repeating old letters and not learning new ones.

That's just a personal opinion.

In 2010, the first time I tried learning Morse, I got until lesson 28.
Stuck there and stopped. I can't remember the reason, maybe got bored and forgot about it.
Now Iím at lesson 28 again and realised (maybe) one problem. See above.

To prevent stopping, I coded a Greasemonkey to have fun with new characters again.
I share it here. It inserts a new Button to MorseMachine, called ďReset 10Ē, that activates the newest 10 Lessons only. So I hear some characters which are quite new to me, and some which are repetition -- but not the really old ones.

Hello Vinz - Vinz,
Thank you! I'm currently at lesson 19, but I have noticed that the new character is smaller percentage with each new lesson. Thank you for your solution.

I currently use Chrome browser, but have Firefox, also. Maybe some day I'll attempt to learn Tampermonkey (for Chrome) and attempt to translate your Greasemonkey Firefox script.

I have good results with Morse Machine, to learn new character. Morse Machine seems to automatically work on my weakest characters.

When my Morse Machine wpm rate approaches 70% of the lesson rate, I know that I have better chance of less than 10% error on my lesson test. Then, I move onto next lesson (and new character).

Thank you Fabian and LCWO.net for offering Morse Machine. Is helping my touch-typing keyboard speed, too!

you are right fogpractice,
MorseMachine is made for training your weakest characters.
So I use it, because I easily can train my newest characters - Koch-Method is not so efficient for this.

Sorry I can't help you with Chrome.

I made scripts for activating just characters, numbers or signs also. If someone is interested.

Vinz
