How about

     There are several ways you can do this.  You can use the arrow
     keys or you can use C-p, C-b, C-f, and C-n.  Generally, many find
     the latter more efficient in the long run because it keeps your
     hands in the standard position.  These characters are equivalent
     to the four arrow keys like this:

Thus avoiding expressions like "but it is generally more..." which
forces an opinion in the user. IMHO, of course. :)
