Learning approach

Our tutorial is designed to teach, develop and practice, step by step, typing skills. One should go through lessons in sequence because they rehearse keys already learned as they add new ones. Separate lessons are written for Dvorak and Qwerty. Instructions for hand positioning over a keyboard are included in a keyboard's layout page.

Typing lessons for Qwerty - the US standard 101 keyboard layout

Qwerty typing lessons Qwerty keyboard hands positioning
Typing lessons should be taken in sequence. They build upon each other and the structure of lessons reflects the Qwerty keyboard layout. The keyboard layout includes hands positioning instructions. Typing progress is tracked. The typing speed goal is set by you and is adjustable. Qwerty lessons have a radio there. Turn it on while practicing. The idea is to type an exercise to the rhythm of music to encourage an even pace, error free typing. Songs have listed speed of the rhythm in wpm (words per minute).

Lessons' progress is maintained on your computer as a cookie.
