Hi Everyone

Hello. My name is Lisa I just joined. I'm glad to find this site, because I learned shorthand in school (Diamond Jubilee) and am just starting to get back into it. I had forgotten a lot, but it's coming back to me. I was wondering if it is very difficult to learn Anniversary? Will I just confuse myself and not be able to do either one?
The reason I ask is I really want to read Alice in Wonderland, but it is only written in Anniversary.
Thanks for any answers.
