If years of IRC banter and rapid email exchanges haven’t honed your touch typing skills to a razor’s edge it’s time to practise. Sense Lang offers touch typing tutorials, games and even a typing trainer that has you typing current news articles.
Sense Lang offers typing tutorials in 16 languages, multiple keyboard configurations and even has tutorials for increasing your number pad proficiency. Sense Lang’s best feature by far is the integration with BBC news feeds. You’ll find traditional typing tutorials that help you memorise basic key patterns and simple sentences but if you’re tired of “The quick brown fox…” exercises you can practice typing BBC headlines and news. It’s like checking your news feed but typing your way through the news instead of just skimming it.
Sense Lang is a free service — both for personal use and for educators to set up typing classrooms for their students. Have a favourite typing tutor or other learning tool to share? Let’s hear about it in the comments.
