Engaging, fun and sometimes challenging, children learn to type with Typequick.
‘Typequick for Students’ helps children from the age of 6 up to 16 learn to type – but adults love it too! It uses a fun approach by following cool ‘Kewala’ as he travels around Australia meeting zany characters whilst learning to type along the way.
‘Typequick for Students’ will teach your child to type with all their fingers without looking down at the keyboard, all in around 10 hours. Once they have learned the position of the keys, it will build up their speed and accuracy as it takes them through a range of further exercises that will hone their skills. It will help improve their spelling too.
