Study Skills Expert recommends Typing

“I believe that touch typing is an essential skill for today’s students. Not only does it save students time, but many of our external examinations are moving to an online model. I would highly recommend that all students learn to touch type preferably before they start high school, or at least by the time they reach Year 10.”
Dr Prue Salter, Director and Study Skills Expert – Enhanced Learning Educational Services

Amin’s Journey
At the beginning of Year 3, I didn’t really like Typequick, but then I saw that I was really behind in the lessons and that everyone was in front of me. Of course, I didn’t like to be behind, so after that I went to the computer lab every day to practise my typing. Then, in Years 4 and 5, I had competition. Other people also wanted to go in and type and soon I had about five other people trying to win the trophy just like me. However, of course, none of us was able to win the trophy at that time. That was when I had my eyes set on that trophy. I set it as my goal throughout Year 6 and about twice a week I’d go in and type. Soon I had seen the big improvement that I had made – 54 WPM! I had reached a speed of 103 WPM. I was very proud of myself.
