Typequick Professional Course Overview

Typequick Professional is a comprehensive typing tutor, featuring ten easy and interesting lessons to learn to type. Then extend and consolidate your keyboarding expertise with five additional courses to increase your speed, accuracy, keypad and punctuation typing skills.

Keyboard Lessons

This course teaches the correct finger positioning and associated keys of the alphabetic/numeric keyboard in ten stuctured lessons. This is your starting point to touch typing!

Lessons 1 - 6 teach the letters of the alphabet in upper and lower case. Each one begins by introducing the new keys with finger placement exercises. Illustrations and simulations on your computer screen show you the correct finger usage for each key. Each self-paced lesson builds on the skills learned in the previous lessons and at each step you are encouraged and motivated to continue. The program alternates between speed practise and accuracy lessons to improve your skills in both areas.

Lessons 7 - 8 teach you how to use the number keys. These are the keys on the top row of the keyboard.

Lessons 9 - 10 focus on building your speed and accuracy.

Each lesson has three parts. In parts A and B you learn new keys and combine them with previously learned letters. Part C is a consolidation lesson where all keys learnt so far are combined and presented in sentences and longer paragraphs. You will receive a progress report at the end of each lesson part.

Speed Challenge You can choose from six lessons designed to increase speed. The emphasis is on speed so don't worry about mistakes, just type as fast as you can.
Accuracy Challenge Doing this course, you will copy-type text that is designed to keep you interested while having to press the correct key to progress.
Advanced Challenge You can choose from seven lessons designed to improve accuracy. The emphasis is on accuracy so the correct letter must be typed to advance.
Punctuation Challenge Teaches the most commonly used punctuation keys.
Keypad Lessons Teaches the number pad for data entry in three easy lessons.
