How do you learn to read the old writing?!

I've managed to find a will in the National Archives which I've downloaded a digitised copy of - but oh boy am I starting to get eye strain squinting at it to understand it - I've managed to make out a lot of words, but there are some that I have no clue on so my transcription has lots of gaps - are there any webpages or guides out there on how to understand it/common phrases used?
