PS : I did not download, so really don't know if it works or not.

Thanks all the same.

No problem :smile: DS is learning through another software. I will update this thread on whether that software is good or not. I think he will take a few more weeks to finish it because he doesn't practice everyday :faint:

DS accidentally deleted that software :slapshead: Finally we used Kiran's Typing Tutor. It is free :smile: He said that he tried it in school before (why he didn't tell me earlier? :mad: ). It works with Window 7 too.

Anyway, he had practised it for 15 minutes for the past few days and I can already see some improvement in his typing skills.

If your child is going to use the software, please make sure that he/she go through the practices. DS tried to skip the practices and straight to the games :spank: . Of course he can't win the game lah :politebleah: and his typing skills didn't improve at all. So, please make sure that your DC finishes all the 150 practices.

Please feedback here if you find the software useful or if there is other software so the other parents can benefit too.

:smile:

This applies to all typing software! There is no replacement for hard work. I also had to insist on a minimum time of practice before playing the games. Games alone don't help (or it will take many more hours of games to be equivalent to 10 mins practice).

I learned typing fast from educational games when I was in Elementary. Typing Shark is a good choice before but I'm not sure which one is available nowadays.

I agree with this. No matter the target age, typing lesson for kids should start with the basics of proper finger placement and movement. The best lessons begin in focusing on individual fingers and each hand. After your children learn proper finger placement, the remaining lessons will boost their accuracy and speed. Keyboarding drills, timed typing tests and engaging, multi-level typing games all reinforce the skills taught in each lesson.
