What are the online typing test games?

Unless you’re lucky enough to have a personal secretary, the ability to type is essential in the majority of office jobs, and in general, it is an excellent skill to possess. Developing a new skill always takes time, but fortunately, due to the variety of online resources, learning the touch-type is free and achievable. This article looks at some of the best places to get started for both adults and children.

Best websites for learning and fun

Freetypinggame.net Touch-typing is often mistaken for the ability to churn out X number of ‘words per minute’ (or ‘WPM’). However, technique is fundamentally more important than pace. For a website that teaches the essentials in easily digestible chunks, visit Freetypinggame.net. Divided into three broad categories: ‘Games’ / ‘Lessons’ and ‘Tests’, the website is a comprehensive resource that can turn you from amateur to pro within a few weeks.
The focus on customisation It means that the website can be used by all levels. All lessons can be tailored by ‘words per minute,’ meaning that beginners can learn the same skills as advanced typists by slowing the pace. Whilst lessons may seem frustratingly simplistic at first (such as only focusing on the letters ‘q’ and ‘p’), the graft eventually pays off. If relentless lessons do prove dull, then Freetypinggame.net provides ’type games’ with an essential competitive element to learning. A famous game is 'Desert Typing Racer’. Finally, when you feel ready to debut your keyboarding-ability, try the huge range of type tests that range from one to five minutes. This requires even the most skilled office worker to show remarkable stamina. If you like Freetpyinggame.net, also visit Sense-lang.org for a similar range of resources, but with a slightly more polished feel.

Best websites for kids

Bbc.co.uk
Ideally, if you want to perfect a skill, you should get started young. However, getting children to focus on the task at hand (particularly out of school) can be particularly difficult. Fortunately, Bbc.co.uk provides a brilliantly tailored site for kids to start learning the typing basics. Using a colourful array of cartoon characters, the site provides four increasingly difficult ‘levels’, each of which provides three different stages. Whilst this website won’t enable your child to type at 60 words a minute, it will give them a comprehensive grounding in typing technique (arguably, more important than speed) that can then be combined with the more ‘mature’ websites listed above. Whilst lacking in quality compared to the BBC website, Learninggamesforkids.com makes up for a lack of sheen with a greater variety of choice whilst still maintaining a similarly colourful kid-centric interphase.
