## Introduction: Learn to Talk Binary (The Efficient/hard Way)

In this tutorial, I will be teaching you how to talk... IN BINARY! Hope you Enj01!

## Step 1: Take a Look at the Alphabet.

So, There are uppercase and lowercase letters, but for now we will only look at uppercase.

A = 0100 0001
B = 0100 0010
C = 0100 0011

At first glance, we can already recognize a pattern. The first 4 digits we can ignore for now. The last 4 digits go 0001, 0010, 0011, 0100, etc.
I would recommend trying to memorize a few benchmarks, for example:

A = 0001
B = 0010
D = 0100
H = 1000

Example: "A Bird Died Here".

Then, at P the first 4 digits change from 0100 to 0101! Now some other benchmarks would be:

P = 0000
Q = 0001
R = 0010
T = 0100
X = 1000

## Step 2: Now, Just Practice!

All you have to do now is PRACTICE. If you truly want to get good at this (or anything for that matter), you just have to keep on practicing. Talk to your friends in binary! Teach them how to talk in binary! Pass notes around in class in binary!

Also, try decoding this (Actually try, I know you have that "binary to text" tab ready).

If any of you think I can improve this instructable, tell me! Like that you can help me help you. Also, if you have any questions feel free to ask!

This is cool! I'm going to a Binary Ball in a couple weeks and I should totally learn to do this! Thank you for sharing.

No prob. :)

this is very neat, however, I would recommend learning how to translate binary into numbers first(what it actually does) and then memorize what number each letter corresponds to. a=1 b=2 ect.

to learn how to Translate Binary into numbers read my instructable or a quick Internet search.

the benefits of this way is that for each letter you must only memorize it's 1-2 digit number instead of a string of 8 1's and 0's. also if doing this than you can use base 6 instead of base 10 (it will make sense after reading my instructable)(less digits per letter)

simply put, it's more of simple calculation to get the binary code and less memorization.
