This ad-supported website provides free touch-typing lessons as well as practice games and tests.
When you get to the site use the display menu or the menu tabs at the top of the screen to access:
- Free Typing Lessons – Use your computer’s keyboard and follow the simple instructions on the site to learn to type. The interactive program teaches 2 keys at a time, starting with the “home row.” Beginners will find a proper hand placement guide too.
- Free Typing Games – Choose from several different interactive, fun, arcade-like games that reinforce typing skills. For example, play “Meteor Typing Blast” and protect your spaceships from meteors and hostile UFOs – by using your typing skills to blast them out of the universe! Or for something a little less intense, try “Save the Sailboat Race.” Type the falling letters before they land on the boats and ruin the race!
- Free Typing Tests – Get an accurate word per minute assessment of your typing ability. The tests have timer options of 1 to 5 minutes. When you’re through, submit your speed on the world wide scoreboard for all to see. Or print out a certificate with your name and typing speed.
