Learn To Touch Type - Touch Typing Suggestions for Young Children and Adults

Reasons to Learn to Touch Type

It is, I think, very important to learn to touch type for the following two reasons. Touch typing can save you a lot of time, instead of fumbling about and searching for keys, you simply know where they are. The second reason to learn to touch type is that you can think clearly and be more creative as you touch type, because you are able to quickly drop words and sentences on a page, before your sentence structure and idea is lost.

Learning to touch type helped me tremendously, as an IT person I often have people sitting with me or watching what I do on computer or during training. I found it difficult to think about what I was doing, talk about what I was doing and search for keys while I finger typed. ( Ha, I guess I cant walk an chew gum at the same time) anyway I bought a Mavis Beacon Teaches typing floppy disk and have never looked back, all I have to do now is learn how to spell.

Unfortunately, learning to touch type is fairly boring, so I suggest you try and get it over and done as quickly as possible, and also choose a Typing Tutor with decent games and simi lair distractions. (After all why else do we have computers, except for games)
