Practice options outside of the lessons include typing personal text, BBC newsfeed text and articles.
Typing.com is geared towards teachers and students, but has lessons geared toward various skill levels that are appropriate for a wide range of ages. The site supports numerous keyboard layouts and styles, so those who are proficient with one layout, such as QWERTY, can use the courses to learn other keyboards, such as those popular in other countries or with other languages.
GoodTyping.com has courses available in English and other languages, including different keyboard layouts. During lessons, the keyboard displays different colors for each finger, such as pink for the index finger, to serve as an easy visual representation of where the fingers sit and which ones strike specific keys.Learn more about Standardized Tests
