- Principles for Effective Learning
- No mistakes. Always be sure and in control. Follow the principle of 100% correct practice: to make a mistake is to learn incorrect things, and to confuse that which you already know.
- Slower is faster. Speed comes from certainty. The more you type things correctly, no matter how slow it has to be, the more certain you will be, and the faster you will become a proficient typist. Increase speed only when you feel sure enough to do so.
- Don't look at the keyboard! If you don't know where a key is, look at the keyboard to find it, then look away and type the key. Do not guess; always be sure.
- Type to a steady rhythm. Generally, the time between keystrokes should be the same, giving you a sense of flow and the ability to scan ahead at a constant speed.
- Relax. No unnecessary or dysfunctional tension. Enjoy the rhythm of your own typing!
- Hit the keys squarely in the center. If you find you aren't consistently doing so, SLOW DOWN!!! It should feel good to type!
Instructions for Use
- Press the "Click here to start" button, then type what you see on the screen. If you type correctly, the letter will turn to grey. If you err, it won't, and you will hear an error sound.
- To do the same again (which you should do if you make ANY mistakes), press the "Go again!" button that appears when you finish.
- Remember, shoot for no errors!! That is the most important thing right now. Speed means nothing; certainty and correctness are what's important.
- For practical purposes, you can consider yourself having mastered an exercise only if you are able to type three reloaded screens of exercises in a row in under 60 seconds each, with no errors, confidently.
If you are accessing this course on the desktop or a laptop, Google Chrome (currently the most popular browser in the world) is the recommended browser for this site, and switching to it will likely solve any issues you may be experiencing. It is a free download , easy to install, and available for all platforms.
Other major browsers, such as Apple Safari , Mozilla Firefox and Microsoft Internet Explorer should generally be ok, however please make sure you are using a current version. Older versions or other browsers may give inconsistent results.
Some third-party extensions for web browsers, such as ad blockers, might interefere with the typing functionality. If you are using such an extension, turn it off temporarily and see if that is the cause. If so, it should be possible to whitelist this site so that the extension is turned off for this site only.
This course is not designed to be used with a soft keyboard on a tablet, although it has been successfully tested to work with iOS devices (iPad and iPhone). If you are on Android or a Windows Mobile device it is hit or miss, however it should work absolutely fine with an external keyboard. It is highly recommended to learn touch typing on a physical keyboard for the tactile feedback, and bluetooth keyboards can be obtained very inexpensively these days (i.e. as little as $10). This is a VERY worthwhile investment to learn touch typing, a skill which will last you a lifetime.
If you're still having problems, you can still access the old, Flash-based version of the course here .

Lesson 13: Bottom Row Left: ZXCVB
And here are the last 5 letters on the keyboard for you to learn: Z for the pinky, X for the ring, C for the middle and the index takes care of both V and B.
B is actually a hard one. Notice how much farther your left-hand finger has to stretch to reach B from its position in the home row (on F) than your right-hand index finger has to reach for its bottom row extended character, N, from its home row position (on J). Just knowing this will help to reduce errors, but don't be surprised if you get tripped up on the B early on.
By now you probably have them memorized, but here are the Principles for Effective Learning anyways! Make sure you have them in mind before doing any typing!
- Speed Typing (bottom row, left) - a simpler version of the below exercise that allows you to type faster and focus on the rhythm of your typing
- Musical Typing (bottom row, left) - generate music with your keystrokes, again making you type rhythmically while testing your powers of concentration. Cool musical arrangements by yours truly!
