I don’t know if it is the nostalgia of learning to type as a kid, or that touch typing lessons are addictive, but I love sites like this where you can learn to type and improve your speed and accuracy!
Before I could even add the site to my list, I sat there and played, err practiced my typing for around a half an hour. I grew up playing Mavis Beacon Teaches Typing, and even had a typing course in high school. So that’s definitely where the nostalgia stems from.
This interface is really easy to use. Just start typing the letters on the screen and you’re on your way. Above the keyboard you’ll find the letters you need to type, and above that the statistics generated from your typing. They cover speed, errors, and even display the lesson set you’re working on.
If you want to save your statistics, you can do so by creating an account. Click the Profile button or My Profile near the top, and you’ll see what you’ve done for this session and a log in button. Click that button, and select how you’d like to sign up for your free account either via Facebook (my choice) or via E-mail. This will allow you to keep track of your stats over time on the My Profile page.
Once you’re logged in the My Profile page has all sorts of charts and graphs and statistical data you can look at about your typing. You’ll even learn what keys you miss the most – curse you, spacebar!
This is a really fun and addictive way to learn to type, or better yet improve your typing! Check it out today!
