Web Site of the Week: Typing Lessons
Typing.com’s free Typing Lessons are a helpful resource for those looking to learn how to type or those who are hoping to hone in on their typing skills. Users may select their skill level, such as Beginner, Intermediate, or Advanced, to open dozens of lessons on the proper use of a keyboard. For instance, the first three lessons under the Beginner category cover the letters J, F, and Space Bar. Each exercise ends with an evaluation of typing speed (words per minute), accuracy, time spent typing, and an identification of problem keys. The Beginner category includes 14 lessons, including two reviews and a wrap up, while the Intermediate category includes 10 lessons, and the Advanced category boasts eight lessons. Whatever a reader’s level, the site offers plenty of practice for typing skills. One caveat, however, is that the free version of the site contains ads. An ad-free experience is available for those willing to pay a nominal fee. [CNH]
