Touch Typing - A Skill for LIFE!
What is the optimum age for my child to attend?
The younger the better, as no bad habits have formed. The only thing that you need to check for is the hand span – the index finger should be on the ‘J’ key and the little finger should be able to stretch to the ‘Enter’ key. With older children who hunt and peck type, we first rectify these habits, then begin the FunTyper programme.
Why learn to Touch Type ?
Touch Typing allows more productive use of time spent on a computer, giving your child more free time.
FunTyper delivers hi-tech Touch Typing to your children by capturing their imagination and competitive nature, making sure they don’t waste time hunting and pecking at the keyboard.
