Microsoft Word Lessons

Microsoft Word is an essential program in today’s world. Whether it’s in the professional or personal world, Word plays a big role in writing, editing, and producing documents, including memos, resumes, novels, poems, and much, much more.

Microsoft Word was first released in 1983 and was one of the world’s first word processing software applications. In its early days, it was called Multi-Tool Word, and was rudimentary in its capability of producing documents. Over the years, though, it would steadily gain popularity, especially when it was paired with the Microsoft Windows operating system. Since then, it has become a much more dynamic software, offering users the ability to make tables and graphs, use images and graphics, and even apply 3D effects.

What is the best way to learn Microsoft Word?

The best way to learn Microsoft Word is through online lessons. There are many tutorials, YouTube videos, and online courses on how to use Word. Though these are all helpful in learning the basics and getting comfortable with the program, it’s even better to take private lessons from a teacher. A great Microsoft Word lessons teacher will help solve problems in real-time, showing you the fastest and most effective way to complete tasks and get your documents finished.

How long does it take to learn Microsoft Word?

It doesn’t take too long to learn the essentials of Microsoft Word. If that’s all you need Word for, then 10 hours of learning and practicing in the program will probably suffice. But if you want to take advantage of the complex functions of the program, more practice and lessons will be needed. For example, to get an official Microsoft Word certification, Microsoft recommends that you have at least 150 hours of instruction and hands-on experience under your belt. A great teacher, such as the ones at TakeLessons, can help learners get the basics down and take their Word skills as far as they want to go.
