Learn to type (for free). 
Many of the computer learn-to-type programs show you what to do, beep when you make a mistake, play inspirational background music, and give you instant statistics about your mistakes and typing speed.  Some of them even include typing games and customized lessons that are created to address your weak points.  Below is a list of several free programs and sites.


Stamina Typing Tutor – the best free typing program according to one of my favorite sites.  It’s for users who already have some basic typing skills. -  “…There are 45 courses that range in difficulty from beginner to advanced as well as eight fun games to play… is not only free to use for typing students, but teachers [and parents – AR] can also take advantage of its tools free of charge… to track students’ progress in real time…typing games, an easy-to-use interface and educator tools are just a few of the reasons is the best free typing software.”

Typing Instructor Platinum  - “…a captivating typing program with a unique travel theme. As you move through the lessons, you travel virtually through different countries and eras, receiving stamps in your virtual passport along the way…. This software has more typing games than any other application we tested. With a dozen to choose from, users of all ages are sure to find a game they enjoy as they learn valuable typing skills… it gives users of all ages and skill levels a fun way to improve their typing. In addition, the games and travel theme are interesting enough to keep teens and young adults engaged in the learning process.”

The Typing Cat – a very popular learn-to-type site with more than 500,000 visitors a month.  It has games, courses and allows you to use different keyboards – such as QWERTY, DVORAK  and COLEMAK (developed by Shai Coleman).

The Typing Racer - the global typing competition.  Increase your typing speed while racing against others.  It works in Hebrew, too, but the typing texts are translated from English by Google translate and don't make too much sense.


Snopi – A simple website with 147 typing lessons.  Very few bells and whistles.

Sense - Lang – Has a Hebrew version as well as an English version.  It includes Hebrew video clip explanations (that require Flash) and web-based lessons.  It also includes a cute Tetris-like typing game with three different skill levels.

10 Fast Fingers - Has an English and a Hebrew version.  The typing texts are not too interesting...

Please note:  Unfortunately, I cannot take any responsibility for use of the software, directions or links suggested. I have no interest - financial or otherwise - in the software or sites listed.  Use at your own risk.
