1. Introduction: Hi and welcome to the course. My name's Ian Stables, author of more than 50 books on Amazon Kindle. If you learn and practice everything in this course, you will be able to complete any typing task in far less time. It will be a skill that you will have for life. This will be good for you in your job. Most jobs and companies these days use computers on. If you can do your typing in less time, that's going to be more productive for you also, if you're a student. Actually, there's a lot of written work for students, so that will speed up that for you. If you're an author, as I am in, write books yourself. You will be able to find that your complete your books in far less time by learning to type . So what do most people do when they type? Most people just use two fingers. Well, say most people, lots of people. Bobby, I'm right. Actually, most people, but you know, how does that compare with touch typing? Why should you learn touch typing? Well, think about it when you use two fingers. That's two fingers when you touch type of seat fingers. Plus, when you touch when you're using two fingers, quite likely looking on the keyboard, trying to find where all the keys are. And that's not only distracting for you from your work, that's gonna take a lot longer than it is. If you could look up at the screen or look for it is you want and you need to look out on you, just type away using your eight fingers on the keyboard. So how is this course gonna teach you touch typing? Well, it's actually an optimized way of learning on this, essentially based on the latest research on skill learning, Andi So this course is based on that on it's essentially easy to follow steps or you've got to do is learn and apply on practice. So that's have a look at how the course is structured and, ah, how you're gonna progress through on what you're going to learn as well. So, firstly, you know, we're going to just look at the keyboard. You know where the keys are on day, we're gonna go onto the most important keys. These are called the home Keys on. Also, I'm gonna show you how to always make sure your hands are on those keys on with that. That's without looking at the keyboard. So you better do it without looking down on. Then we'll also talk about which fingers are used. For what? Keys on the keyboard. Uh, movie. Looking at how you need to practice. So remember, this is based on a non optimized way of practising the skill. Learning is based on research, so it works on. I've tested it myself, and it really does work. So I've created this course on typing based on that same principle, so I'll be showing you what you need to do so that you can practice on get the fastest results with ocracy. Eso eso should be how long you need to practice for. I'll be showing you the accelerator tip. I call it an Accelerated because it really does accelerate your practice. Just by doing this simple thing, really, does I'll be talking to you about that as well. Then you need to know how to practice, so that should be giving you drills to practice on, but first need to understand what you should do. Teoh practice properly with that said, than once you understand those things then will be moving on to the actual practice sessions. So, you know, we start with the most important keys, the home keys on in here. You'll find on it. Talk about each pair of keys at a time on quickly demonstrate where you would need to put those on, then how you would practice on after the home keys, we move on to the other keys A swell. So you know, the top road, the bottom row, a swell. After that, at the end of these sections as well, I'll be giving you downloadable practice sheets so you'll find at the end of the each of these sections there will be a short video. And then how to get those practice sheets to purchase with after you've got the letters practice because that's what we do. New letters. Then we'll be learning the number. So, of course, actually, most typing tasks you won't be doing a lot of numbers in this doing data entry. However, you know there will be times we need to type numbers, so again, love it. If you can do that without looking down the keyboard every time you're gonna save a lot of time. So we talk, giving you again drills to learn all the numbers on the top row on your keyboard on again as a practice sheet at the end of that section so you can practice that as well. Okay, after the numbers will be talking about on three important keys on how to practice those. So essentially there's going to be capital letters. Okay, that's one of the keys that you'll be learning in this part on. I'll be showing you the really easy way to learn Andrea to practice typing capital letters without again looking at your keyboard, because that's what wall was. What touch typing is about on when we've done all of that on you. Practice and learn all the keys, and you can do everything. By this time, you will be able to type all the keys and numbers were not looking at your keyboard on. Then we'll be talking about how you go on to improve your speed, so that's essentially what it is. So you get into the course and learn it. Follow the drills. Remember, you must practice. There's no point just watching the course on, then expecting results. You know it's the skills like driving a car snow Point, learning how to drive a car. You need to actually get in the car, and it's the same with type things like everything else. And the more you do it, the better you will be and the faster you will be. OK, No, I really do want you to meet. I want to make sure that you really do learn this skill. So if there's any questions or anything you struggling a little bit with, or anything like that on the dashboard, you'll notice. Here there's a Q and A section. Just click on that and you can add a question here on I know what it is. I will respond may not be straight away and this upon my computer at the time. But as soon as I check my questions of I see that you put a question in there, I will respond as quick as I possibly can know. What I like to add here is well, hopefully I've done this Court knows about a lot of time on this course, making sure that it is designed to give you the best results possible. If, however, there's something that you think could be improved. Or you'd like something added to the course something extra, you know, Please let me know about it by popping the question here in the Q and A section in the course and I'll get back to you if you like the course as well. You know, be lovely. If you could just leave a review. Doesn't need to be, you know, a lot of words. Just a few words will do. Onda. Just let everybody else know that you've also enjoyed the course. Now it's up to you. And if and when you do that review, I probably suggest that you wait until you get to the end of the course. Before you leave, you review because then you will know, you know, you would have seen the whole course. Okay, so with that, let's get on with the first lecture 2. 2keyboard: This is a standard keyboard that you're likely to find on most computers on laptops. It's known as the Quartey keyboard because of the arrangement of the keys. So if you look on the top left keys here, letter keys, you'll see it spells Quartey. Q W e r T y. Now you might say Beau Martin, they designed to Kiev. Overs in goes in like a B C D E F G is on through the alphabet. Well, originally, when keyboards were first designed, um, if the person was able to type too fast, the keys used to get jammed because in the old style typewriters, you had the keys where they would all go into the center that use metal. Arms would go up with each letter on on if some was to type two quick, those letters have become jammed. So they decided to change the keyboard to what we see today the Corti keyboard so that that stopped people being able to type too fast on, therefore, not jamming the keys on the typewriter. But we're no stuck with this form of keyboard. There are other keyboards out there, but this is the normal keyboard arrangement that you're gonna have for the letters. And you can still type very, very, very fast on it. Okay, so the keys on here, the ones that you're gonna be typing the most are essentially going to be these. So you can see all of the letters here. You're gonna be typing along with a code on here. You're gonna be typing using these keys here across the bottom, of course. Also the shift keys. No. If you don't already know, the Shefki is the one where you press hoper. Hold it down on that. If you type a letter, it makes a capital letter on. If you're trying to get a cold on, say, here is the same e chord on cold on. If you just type it, it will give you a court semicolon. If you want the call on which is above this one, it you hold the shift key down first and then press it and it will give you the cool long. So normally find that when there's keys you'll find different things above and below the keys. To get the one above, you would hold down the shift key first and get up on the course. The enter key here or the return key depends on what you refer to it. Normally, that one is what gives you a new line. So if you try typing and you finish a paragraph and you want to come down, you press the enter key on. That would then give you a new line, depending on the aligned spacing on your computer. Normally, if it's one single line spacing you had press the enter key twice, so that would put a space between the next paragraph on the previous one. So those are the main keys that we're going to focus on in this course. Because, let's face it, unless you're doing data entry, lots of figures and numbers numbers are not going to be used as frequently as what letters are. So that's what remain. You're gonna focus on here if you're noticed. So the numbers are across the top, Onda and you know. So that's where you'll find your numbers. No, some keep keyboards like this one on North. A like mind on my laptop will have a key part over here on the right hand side. Eso if you are doing something where you required to type lots and dots and numbers into, like data entry or something like that. And it's probably suggested that you would use the key part instead of this, because if you practice and learn how to use the key, but you can take the numbers a lot quicker than what you were trying to use your these keys at the top. However, in normal typing, you will be called upon to do where you will put the used in numbers were, for example, you were type a date or year or something like that. Then you be using the numbers. Now. I'm not going to focus on those too much at the beginning. I'm just going to get you proficient at using all of the's keys here and read the numbers. You can get those later on when you do need a number, which will be foreign few between at first. You may well have to keep looking down at your keyboard to find those keys, but on this course, we're going to focus on just using these keys and getting your proficiency that you're able to type them without looking A. He board on Later on your beer to do, even without thinking you'll see it. We're and just type it. Think a bit There is, the more the more you practice, then the easy it's gonna become in the last thinking you'll need to do when you're actually typing. So it's like when you learn to drive. At first you'll be thinking of his a manual control car with gears. Then you're probably at first when you start to drive, you'd be looking at you know where the gears are, which were the clutches, where the brake is an accelerator and so on. On its only then after practice, when you keep doing it over and over again, you will be able to eventually be able to drive your car. But I even thinking about word of gears. Are you finally be changing gears without even thinking about it? It's the same with typing. The more that you do it, more practice that you get your find that you'll be able to eventually just type words without thinking about where the keys are. So with that, let's move on 3. 3homekeys: now I'm going to teach you on something on. This is very valuable, and it's very important as well. So on the keyboard there are these eight keys. Keys. Keys are known as the home keys. The reason for that is because that is the position that the four fingers on your left hand and your right hand should always start from. Because then from that position, it means you will then know where all the other keys are from that position where they're actually looking. So on the left, it's SDF on on the right, it's J K L on semi colon, and of course you can get the call on on that as well. So I'm not going to show you how you can find those keys without looking, because it's quite important, because when you're actually typing, you don't want to keep looking to s so that you can put your your fingers back in that position again, so there's a really easy way of doing it. So there's thes two keys here, the F on the J. Now you're essentially on your left hand index finger goes on the F and your right hand index finger goes on the J. So how to find that? Whether even looking is on each of these keys, there is a little protrusion, little lump that you feel when you touch these key. So what you do what you want? What I want you to do now is get your left index finger and put it on the F key. Andi, then your right index finger. Place that on the Jakey. And I want you to feel that lump onto the key. OK? No, do that. No, no. When your keep your fingers are correctly positioned on those two keys, your other three fingers will be the incorrectly position above the other home keys. So with your left index finger on the F, you don't notice that your big finger will be on the D your ring finger on the S on your a little finger will be on the A on. Similarly, with the right hand, your index finger will be on the J Your long thing. Longest finger beyond the K during finger on the L On your little finger. Of course. On where? This the semi Cool on on across the cold on there as well. Don't worry about up just yet, So this essentially is the home case. So you need to always have your fingers in these on these keys when you are typing course. Yes, you need to move your fingers to reach other keys, but they will always return back to these keys. When you've typed the letter that you wish to type on, you're going to learn these in a very easy way and following the practice exercises that I'm going to give you shortly. So that's the first lesson knowing where your home keys. So what I want you to do is just do a little bit of practice getting used to finding those . So at first you might need to look at your keyboard, but I want what I want you to try and do is look away from your keyboard and try to find those keys without looking at your keyboards, for Just look away from your keyboard. Look up on, then put your hands on the keys until you find those two little lumps with your left on your right Index fingers in that way. You know No, when you phoned that that your index finger is correctly above the F in your right of off the J on your other three fingers will fall nice and neatly above the other keys. No, When you have those four fingers, you may also notice that both of your thumbs for naturally over this key here at the bottom , which is called the Space bar. The space bar is what you use if you don't already know to create a space. So between words and sentences and and so so that's very important. So, as you can see from this position, you can type those four home keys on put spaces in between. What? Your type on from there, all the other keys, you will be able to find them without looking. 4. 4fingersused: So now you've got used to where your fingers go on the home keys. I'm not going to get you to practice anything yet. I'm just gonna show her your fingers. Which fingers move around the keys on your keyboard so that start with our left hand are small finger, which is on the a key. So that finger is responsible for the A, of course, because it's covering that Keyes honky from there, it can move downwards below to get this ed on above to get the queue. Now also, if you're typing a number, that would be number one now be I'm showing the numbers as well, because when you do the numbers later on, um, you know, this shows you which finger goes to the number. But of course, Ah, what we're going to do in this course is get your used typing the letters, um, rather than the numbers for an hour later on. You can probably practice the members yourself when you're more proficient with the letters . So that's the left key? No. If we moved to our left ring finger Ah, these are the keys that would be responsible for. So it's resting above the s on the honkies that would then go downwards to get the X above to get a W. And you know, if when it's a number that would be number two and then a long, long finger of my left hand Ah, accord a four finger is the D which is resting above that on the honky. And then it can go down to get the see above to get the on. Of course, the three if you wish. And I'm not gonna continue mentioning the numbers. You can see that for yourself from now. Just the letters. So the next one is our middle finger. No, this one's got more keys to be responsible for. This has got actually six letter keys, not counting the numbers. So the are left index finger will be resting on the home keys and will be above the F. So the efforts straightaway you compress that was already resting on it. But for now, if it moves it down, you can get the V or above and get the are onda. Also, it can move to the right to get the letter G on duh. Drag me to the right above to get the tea on diagonally below to get the B. There's a reason why it's responsible for more letters, because the right hand finger would have to stretch too far to get the T G and B. It's more natural for the F key your index finger to reach these letters. No, we move to the right hand till again. Starting with our right are small finger right hand. So that's resting on the home keys that's above. If you press that done, it will give you the coal on key. Or if you hold the shift key down, we'll give you the cool on on. Then, of course, we move our little finger down. That will give us the Ford Slash or, if you want the question question mark would hold the shift key down with our left hand, uh, on Then press that key to get question Mark Onda. Then above, we move our little finger above to get the letter P. Onda course, moving to our ring finger of the right hand that's resting comfortably above the L on the home keys. So just press down to get the l on. If you move it down, you can get the comma. No, You know, there's a greater symbol which and get my pressing shift. But that's probably less common to use more likely to be pressing a comma. So you just move your ring finger down to get the comma. I'm you've, ah, ring finger above to get the o lend them our big finger of our right hand So again, that ones as you can see above the letter K on we would start a big part of my me talked about the f sorry, beg pardon When you move the ring finger of your right hand down below the l you getting a full stops or a bigger pardon? Not the commerce have said so that would be the full stop. So the big finger of our right hand is above the cable removed that down we get the comma and then if we move our ah, big finger up upwards above the k, you get the I. So those are the letters that that finger is responsible for, and then finally, our index finger right hand. So, like the left Onda and Index finger is also responsible for six letter keys not counting the numbers, So it's resting above the J. So you press that down, we get the J. If you move it up below the J, we get an M move above the J. We get you and, as you can see, remove our index finger one key to the left to give us an H. And if you move it, Daigle, you don't left. We get the end on Darnley. Ah, to left above. We get the why, so it's pretty obvious when you're seeing on the screen like this, but when we come when you're not looking at the keyboard as you're able to see on the screen now you'll have to do this from memory. But please don't worry. You'll easily be able to do this. If you follow my instructions in this course on, go through the practice exercises. 5. 5howtopractice: so before we actually start practicing, typing, learning to type, there's you need to understand a few things. So how to make the fastest progress that is a wrong way on. There's a right way by following the methods and this. This is based on lots and lots of research conducted to show the best ways of acquiring a new skill like typing. So we'll be showing you what keys to practice, what keys to practice at a time on the keyboard. We'll also be showing you how long to practice so the optimum time to practice typing on. Also, a be showing you what speed to type as well. When you practice on done, I'll be showing you one off named the Accelerator is quite a good technique, quite a simple thing to do, but it really does improve your progress. Ah, lot. So how do we actually practiced? Well, the usual way that lots of people will do it if they teach themselves at a type is they will get some text, and they were trying to practice the text and then first a bit of keys and eventually learned to do it without looking at the keys and you can do that. And that's the way that I did it. Reddit start until I discovered a better way to practice. So the better way to practice is this. Don't try to practice lots of different keys all at the same time. We're just going to be focusing on the two keys at a time. Not ours, narrows and narrows just doing the same to keys over and over again until you get the two keys and move onto the next one. But no. Two keys at a time. But each combination you'll be just practicing for two seconds, so I should say, two seconds, 30 seconds sessions for each two keys and then you move on to another two keys for 30 seconds. Another two keys with 30 seconds and so on, and then you go back to the 1st 2 keys. Practice those again for 30 seconds and continue on through. Lighten up. So what does that she does is it means that you don't get bored so more likely to do it again the next day and the next after that, but also by doing it for 30 seconds for two keys and another two keys from 30 seconds on gets you used to using not more than one key, because eventually you're not just going to be typing to keep two letter key two letter words, you're gonna be typing longer words and long text, so by doing it 30 seconds for two keys at a time, we'll give you enough practice to learn where those keys are on. Also to get faster at typing those two keys in combination. But also, when you come to type words and longer texts, you will find that you'll be a lot faster by first just starting out by practicing two keys at a time, essentially, our recommend that you practice each day between for 20 to 30 minutes. I don't suggest that you sit at your computer typing for an hour or 234 hours a day because you might be forgiven for thinking that, you know, if I practice for hours a day instead of 30 minutes, I'm gonna make faster progress. Well, arguably, you might, but it's actually you make. Progress has been proven that you make fastest progress, not by the amount of time that you spend practicing each day, but it's actually the frequency of her practice. So it's daily practice. That is the key. So practice every single day for 1 to 2 sessions for about 20 to 30 minutes at a time. Andi, that will give you the best best results. What I should also tell you to do here. Start slowly because what you don't want to be doing is if you're practicing typing and you keep messing up, typing the wrong keys over and over again eventually is going to be a habit on that. It's gonna be a habit heart that's hard to break. So it's important that you start slowly, even painfully, slowly if you wish where, however slowly it takes you whatever it is, make sure that you get hit each key right the first time every time you do it, um, on, then you congratulate. Increase your speed. So that's why I suggest you do when you're doing your 32nd practices. Start really slowly at first, especially at the start, when you're getting to learn where the keys are on finding on the keyboard without looking , you need to start really slowly, get it right and then increase your speed. Now, when you increase your speed. If you start noticing you're making mistakes, then it's just a kind of scratch, slightly slowing his speed down again on getting it right on. Then, once again, try to increase your speed. Just slowly increase your speed on Keep your accuracy. That is key to learning to type following this method. Now here is what I call the accelerator Now. It's a really simple thing, but it's actually does give really, really good results. Essentially, this practice before you go to bed. So why is that important? Well, actually found out this technique s somebody who was learning an instrument of keyboard, most trying to practice certain p a piece of music on the keyboard on his progress was, you know, like most people, quite slow and sometimes painful on. What he found was is that when a few practice before you go to bed, the course after your practicing, you sleep, and that's when your mind recharges itself for the next day on its being found improved that you actually make faster progress if you do it before you go to sleep. I'm so I'm not going to give you all the science behind it. You just let me tell you that it does work. The first new person who was practicing the keyboard, he found that when he practiced the piece at night nice and slowly being accurate, making sure he did it right. Not mistakes. He noticed that the next day, when he woke up when you practice again, his ability improved dramatically. A lot different than what it it did when he was practicing through the day. So I strongly suggest that if you're gonna practice, do you practice to become try to fit it in for 20 to 30 minutes before you go to bed at night and you'll find it. You're gonna make ah lot faster progress. So next it's time to actually start practicing on learning to type. 6. 6practiceintro: No, it's time to do the practice sessions to learn to type, to touch type. So first of all, go through each video and then, at the end of each video, practiced the key combination that I show you move onto the next video and practiced up. So first of all, we're going to be working on the middle keys. That's the home keys, including the G and H Andi. That will be you getting used to those keys on. Then what I want you to do is to continue practicing those keys until you get proficient at it. No, once you watched the videos of gone through each combination by watching videos, then you just simply continue your practice by following the practice sheets, which I'll give you your boat. Download those after we finished the section on the middle keys. From then on, we'll do the same thing with the top keys. First left hand, then the right hand so again would be a video on each one of those key combinations on at the end. Practice sheets for you to get used to those on. Then, of course, finally will do the left and right hand keys for the bottom row of keys. So that's how we're gonna follow this here. So essentially, what I want you to do is get proficient at the middle keys first by practicing those women your okay and familiar with where to put your fingers, typing those keys by doing the practice drills exercises. Then you'll be able to move on to the next section of practice, which is getting used to the top keys. Get profession at those keys on both pounds. When your profession at those you then finally be able to move and getting the bottom keys to get those right. Once you've done not, you then be ready to move on to the next step. 7. As: So here is the 1st 2 keys You're going to practice for 30 seconds. So simply the A on the eso back and forth without space is just a s a s A s A. So if Europe When your keys are on the home keys, you'll find that your little finger will be over. The A on your left ring finger will be over the s so simply you were just getting used toe used to these two keys. So remember, start slowly. Just getting used to not looking at the keyboard. Just pressed it a on the s slowly back and forth, back and forth, back in force getting used to the world they are without looking at the keys. So just simply look screens you like freeze the video where you're looking out for 30 seconds and type those two on Then once we've done the 30 seconds will be ready to move on to the next two letters 8. Ad: Now, here's the next two keys. So you be using typing the A on D back on forth gain. Remember, start slowly on, then gradually build up speed as time goes on. Just doing this for 30 seconds each time you do these two letters. So you haven't guessed it already. If your fingers air correctly over the home keys, you were using your little finger on your big finger to type these keys A little finger, of course, over the A on big finger over the d. So just do that for 30 seconds on, then move on to the next video for the next two letters. 9. Af: no for our next two letters, the A on the F. So the little finger of the left hand off is the A andare index finger. Left hand is over the F, so we'll be practicing those two keys for 30 seconds. When you've done that, then it's time to move on to the next two letters. 10. Ag: the next two letters to come A practice in combination are the A on G. So the small finger, as you know no is over the A. Because you've been doing that a few times on the G is by moving your index finger from off the F key over to the G. Um, wanna suggested probably trying to, if you can, is when you press the G, move your finger quickly back to the F on as you press the A. Then I'll get you used to moving your finger off from the F over to get the G practice up for 30 seconds on, then go on to the next to let a combination. 11. Sd: No, we're doing the s and D in combination. So practiced this for 30 seconds, going backwards on Ford's So just S d SD s d like. So just remind you if you know already, you should already know. Now, as the ass is over your left ring finger on you use the big finger of your left hand to press the date. When you've done that, then we will move on to the next two letters. 12. Sf: The next is s on F practiced ease. Two letters in combination, one after the other. So again the S is under your left ring finger the F under your left index finger, so practice those for 30 seconds. 13. Sg: no for our next two letter combination to practice together. So this is S and G. So the s You don't need to be to keep telling you after a while, I'm sure you'll know which one's which fingers are for what keys. But it's the S under the left index, left ring finger on your left index finger moves from the F to the G. 14. Df: the next to let a combination to practice for 30 seconds is D and F. The course is under your big finger on your left hand and the F as you know onto your left index finger. So practice that for 30 seconds and then move on to the next two letters. 15. Dg: never going to practice T D on G keys. So the left the the big finger pressed a D on unusual index meet finger to move from the F to the G on like we did with the A earlier try if he can. After pressing the G to quickly move your index finger back to the F as you press the D key on that will give you practice moving your finger from the F to get over to that G letter. 16. Fg: I know the final two letters were practicing with our left hand F and G. So this is just using our index finger. Get us used to going from the F to G A bit more practice on that. So f and G for 30 seconds, Andi, then we'll move on to the next part. 17. L: Here's the next two keys. No gonna work on our right hand. So our little fingers over the colon on our ah, ring finger on the right hand is over the l. So we're just gonna practice thes two keys like we did before For 30 seconds on, then we'll move on to the next two keys. 18. K: Here's our next two keys. So the little finger over the cool on again this time are big right finger over the case. And we're going to practice those to pack and fourth for 30 seconds. 19. J: never practicing the colon, Andrzej. So the small finger is our colon on our index finger on the right hand on the J. So practice those two keys in combination for 30 seconds. 20. H: no practicing the coup on key again with our little finger with the h on me, You do that by moving are right index finger to the left to hit the H key. So practice those two keys back and forth for 30 seconds. 21. Lk: never gonna practice these two keys together. The l on decay for the l is are right in the right key. Finger on the K, of course, is our long finger on the right hand. So practice these two for 30 seconds and then move on to the next to 22. Lj: and they were going to practice the L Andrzej together. So begin. The l is with our right hand ring Finger on. The jays are right on index finger. So we're just gonna practice those two together for 30 seconds. 23. Lh: Now we're going to practice the L and J T and L and H together. Beg pardon. So again, the l is our right, hon. Ring finger and never gonna practice moving. Ah, getting the J for the H will get it right in a minute. So we move our index finger from the jade that left to press the H. So we're just gonna practice noted L on day H for 30 seconds. 24. Kj: No, it's time to practice Que Onda j So that's our big finger andare index finger of our right hands. So practice those two keys for 30 seconds. 25. Kh: No. We're gonna practice the K and H together. So again the k with our big finger of our long finger of your right hand on, we'll move our index finger to the left from the J were it rests to get the h key. So a practice that for 30 seconds 26. Jh: on the last combination for the middle row of keys with our right hand again using our index finger, we're going to practice the J on decay back and forth for its the J pressing down and moving our index finger to the left to press the h on. We're going to do that back and forth for 30 seconds. 27. Homepracticesheet: So now it's time to continue your practice for your honkies. So with the short lectures, I've shown you the position of each key and which fingers to use for each one. Of course. Um so no, you need to get your practice sheets s so that you can continue practicing those in your 20 to 30 minutes a day. Remember? Is 30 seconds for each combination? No. In the next lecture, after this one finishes, you will be showing a screen like this one here on DA On it, you will see this little blue link what it is doing my computer on. If you click on that, that will then load a box where you can then download this to your computer and then loaded up on, then have it on the screen or printed out. Better still, if you want it next to your computer, or you could have it so you could have that screen on, say, one side of your computer screen on an your word processor on the other side so you can actually front just typing in there. Now, when you get your practice sheet, you will see the left hung keys that we've gone through. Ah, the home keys on the other. And then, of course, the right. Keep right. Two fingers. You know the right keys for your right hand as well. No, beneath that, you will see further practice where you're practicing the honkies with both hands. Now, I didn't need to create lectures to demonstrate how to press those keys using both hands. Because we've, of course, already gone through the positions off these keys on your keyboard as we've gone through left and right hands in the lectures. So what I suggest you do is practice the left hand on the right hand combinations and then do both hand combinations as well. Just go around the bone. Keep doing that into a competent enough, um, with those keys so you can do all the exercises without looking down at your keyboard. When you're competent enough for that, then still continue to practice. Of course, you're typing because the more you practice, the better you'll get. But then that you are will be able to long you're confident enough. Then it's time to move on to the next sessions, which is looking at learning the top row on your keyboard. 28. Topintro: So in this section you're going to learn the top row of letters on. I'm going to be showing you in the following lecturers one of the time which finger you reduce to press each of these keys on. Then you will be able to practice. Those have been a practice what? Them in combination with the keys that you've already learned, Which is, of course, the letters on the middle row on. So each letter you're gonna practice in combination with the letters on the middle row one at a time on that will give you the benefit of that is that you'll be then used to getting the top key on getting it from After pressing whatever key it is, you press on the middle and of course, by doing that, not only able to improve your speed later on when you come to actually type text, but also it will help you learn that key very, very well. So you get to the point where you're confident on that you don't need to look at the keyboard so and at the end of this section, you will actually have the opportunity of dough. Noting a practice sheet where it will give you each key accommodation to practice, which you're practice each combination for 30 seconds each. So without, let's get on to learning the first key. 29. Topq: so no for our first key in the top row of letters. So we're gonna practice first the cute So you already know where your keys and are now on their home keys. You know, the keys on the middle row so don't need to teach. It was again cause you've hopefully being practicing those Nurcan do those without looking at the keyboard. So first it's the queue. So essentially, we're going to do a thank you in combination. So the finger that you used to press the Q is the same key you press the A with. So that's the small finger on your left hand. So simply first to 30 seconds of a ink you on, then, when you've done that, 30 seconds of S and Q. 30 seconds of Dean Q F in Q G Q. On continue across the board like that, so that then you've done all those fingers that you've been practicing on the middle row on . You do them in combination back and forth with the Q 30 seconds each. No, there's the practice sheet after these lectures, which will give you something that you can use to practice with, which will give you these combinations to practice 30. Topw: no For our next letter on the top rule, which is the w on again, we're going to practice back and forth in two letter combinations with the keys on the middle row to get used to the W, impressing them also in combination with all the keys that you've learned in practice so far. So the W is pressed with the same finger that you press the S with. So that's your left hand ring finger eso That's the ah, finger that you used to press the W. So again you'll be practicing each of these letters with the W for 30 seconds each across the middle row of keys on. But like on the last lecture at the end of this section, for the top row, you will find your practice sheets, which you can print off if you like, or just have them on your computer screen next year. Word processor where you can practice these keys. So that's the W key 31. Tope: The next key to practice is the E on the E is pressed with the same key that you press the D with. So that's your longest finger on your left hand. So once again, you practice for 30 seconds each the e with a one with one of the letters on the middle row for 30 seconds of each letter. So they eat, for instance, for instance, e a a for 30 seconds, Yes, and so on D and so on. So that's the E. 32. Topr: no for the letter R on our is you press that using the same finger that you press the f So that's the index finger of your left hand so onto game for 30 seconds each, you're gonna practice the are in combination back and forth with each of the letters across the middle. On that, all of these practice sessions will be in your practice sheets at the end of this section as well. 33. Topt: no for the letter t that letter T is pressed using the same finger that you pressed the F key with. So again your index finger is used. So you use indexing finger for there are. But we also use it for the tea as well. So 30 seconds each so T v d t but F g h j and so on red across the board, 30 seconds each. On Once again. These are all in your practice sheets at the end of this section. 34. Topp: no. Still with the top keys. We're going to work from the right hand side. So good to start from the left US booze. But just it seemed logical to start from the right. So the letter p. So the finger that you used to pass the P is the same finger you would use to get the semi cool on, which is your right hand? Small finger. So that's the key. That's a finger that you use depressed the letter p Once again, you re practicing each key in turn across the bottom one of the time for 30 seconds each. So P, l, K, P and J for 30 seconds Ph for 30 seconds and so on. That's the letter p. So practice that one. 35. Topo: no for the next letter. That's the oh on. You may have already know getting the idea. The finger that you used to press the O is the same key that you pressed the L. So that is your right hand ring finger. So once again, who just simply go through 30 seconds each O j o j o j so on for 30 seconds, the same with O H g and so on all the way across on. Like I said earlier this these exercises will be in your practice sheets at the end of this section. 36. Topi: no for the letter. I the letter I, as you may have guessed, is pressed with the same key. You press the letter key, keep the letter K. So that is your long finger on your right hand. So once again, 30 seconds each, along with each key in the middle looks restaurant key there on. So it's simply across the keyboard, like so I along with all of those keys. 37. Topu: No. We're going to practice and learn the letter. You So the letter you is pressed with the same finger that you pressed the letter j. So that is your as you or I may have a guest. Your index finger of your right hand. So once again, you're going through each of the letters one at a time for 30 seconds each in combination with the letter U. 38. Topy: I know for the last letter in the top row. So it's the letter y You pressed the letter y with same finger that you pressed the letter J with eso that is your index finger of your right hand. So once again, you would practice the 30 seconds come in combination with each of these letters on the middle roll one at a time, which will, of course, also these will appear in your practice sheets. 39. Toppracticesheet: So you have no learned all the top kiesel, the keys in the top row. All the letter keys that is in the top rope, if you aren't those unpracticed them each 30 seconds each. Now I want you to continue practicing those Just keep practicing over and over until you're able to type All the keys were there looking down at your keyboard. So to help you do that, I've included a practice sheet you can download to your computer so you can either printed off Andi, have it next to your computer or if you wish, you can have it on your computer and have it so this next to your word processor on, then you can type in. Practice it that way. So you get your practice sheet by clicking on this link here. So this is it. The next lecture. So, just after this lecture finishes, the next lecture will be this screen click on this link here, which says talkies practice dot pdf on that will then allow you to download it to your computer. Now, on the practice sheets, you'll notice there's three sections for a section is the top left keys and then the second section is the top right keys, but below that, then there is a section for all the top keys. That's essentially where you're practicing a combination of all the top keys. One of the times. Remember each quite key combination, 30 seconds each on continue practicing over and over when you're on, then competent that you can type all the keys without looking at your keyboard. Then it's time to move on to the next section, which is the bottom keys. 40. Bottomintro: So in this section, we're going to learn on practice the keys on the bottom row. So I'm going to be showing you one of the time which finger you would use to press each of these keys on course to really learn them on, get the benefit of it. You're going to be practiced them in combination with the keys have already learned on the middle rope which includes your home keys. On benefit of that is so not only will you be fast when you come to do actual typing of text, but also you're going a really learned these keys so well that you won't need to look at the keyboard, which is the whole point off touch typing, which makes you faster at the end of this section. Of course, like the last section, you will then have the opportunity of downloading a practice sheet, giving you each of these letter combinations to practice. So you be practicing each letter combination like before for 30 seconds each. So with that, let's get gets, get on and learn the first letter 41. Bottomz: so the first letter that we're going to learn and practice is the letter said eso the letters as you press that key with same finger that you pressed the letter A with on the left hand that is your small fingers. The small finger is used for the a a zealous the que Onda said. So never going to practice and learn the zed key. So do this for 30 seconds on your going to do it for 30 seconds as well, in combination one of the time with all of the letters across the middle row. 42. Bottomx: No. We're going to learn the X unpracticed that three X is pressed using the key the finger that you used to press the letter s, which is the same one you used to press the letter W. So that is the ring finger of your left hand. So once again, we're gonna practice that for 30 seconds with each key across the middle row, just like we did with the said. 43. Bottomd: no for the next letter. That's the letter C on the sea. You press that key using your longest finger of your left hand, which is the same let a finger that you used to press the letter d. So that's used. The big finger is used for the D the e above in the seat, but never gonna practice to see once again for 30 seconds each one of the time with each of these letters across the middle. 44. Bottomv: next, we're going to practice the letter V on the V. You press not using your index finger of your left hand. So that's the finger that you used to press the F, the F key. And also, of course, the R key. So once again, 30 seconds each letter combination. So the V one at a time with each of these letters across the middle. 45. Bottomb: next is the letter B on the finger that you use to press the letter B is the same finger that used to press the F on the middle rope, which is your index finger of your left hand. So once again, we're going to practice 30 seconds a time with each letter across the middle row, so 30 seconds with each letter. 46. Bottom: Now we're going to move over to the right. The bottom kiis thes four slash key off CC is a question mark there as well, which you get by pressing shift for and hope holding shift. And in doing that, you were just gonna refer to that as a slash key to make it easier and simpler. So we're going to start by practising that 30 seconds with one of the key in the middle row one at a time. So gonna go from right all the way over to left this time because it's for the right hand. Um so practice that key for 30 seconds on the finger that you used to place on that key you may have already guessed is your small finger on your right hand. It's the same key used to press the semi cool on key 47. Bottomstop: So the next key we're going to practice on learn is default. Stop key. Eso The finger that you used to press the full stop key is the same finger that you used to press T l which is your ring finger of your right hand. So once again, we're goingto 30 seconds at a time with each of these keys across the middle rope. 48. Bottomcomma: the next key we're going to practice and learn is the comic E. The finger that used to press the comically is the same one that used to press decay on the middle row, which is your longest finger of your on your right hand. So once again, we're gonna practice for 30 seconds a time in combination with these keys across the middle . 49. Bottomm: the next key that we're going to practice is thes letter M on the finger that you would use to press the M is the finger that you used to press the J on the middle road. Also that you above on the top row and that's your index finger of your right hand. So once again for 32nd time in a practice in combination with each key on the middle row one of the time. 50. Bottomn: on the next key on the bottom rule is the end. So we use our index finger our right hand to press the ends. That's the same finger that used to press the J on the honky. So we're gonna practice that key with one of each of the keys across the middle one of the time for 30 seconds each. 51. Bottompracticesheet: so we have no gone through all the bottom row or the keys on the bottom of the letters on. Learn which fingers to use to press each one in practice, each one for 30 seconds. Eso You need to continue practicing that over and over again. 30 seconds for each double key combination until you're able to type each combination without looking down at your keyboard. Onda No, I've given you a practice sheet, of course, that you can use this to continue practicing to ignite a printed out or if you wish, you can have it on your computer, so have it so that you can see it next to your world processes. So have the practice. She on the left. You're a process on the right or whichever way you want it on. Then continue just practicing the combinations by looking at the practice sheet without looking a keyboard. Keep doing that until you eventually able to do it without looking at your keyboard. It all, like the previous practice, shoots three sections, so the 1st 1 is or the let bottom keys on the left hand side of the one you use your left hand to type on, then the next section is the keep bottom keys on the right hand side, which is what used you type with your right hand on. Then the final section is where it's all the bottom keys in combination of two debtors at a time. So, like I said, practice each combination for 30 seconds each. Just keep going over and over and over that until you're confident enough to practice all the key combinations without looking down at your keyboard. 52. Numbersintro: So on the next section, I'm going to be teaching you the numbers in the very top row of your keyboard, like we did with the letters we're going to practice, um, in two numbers out of time. So 30 seconds each combination pair of numbers. That way, it would become automatic for you on. Do you bear to type the numbers? Ah, lot quicker. Using this practice method without looking at your keys at the end of the section on number practice. Then I will be giving you the opportunity to download a practice sheet. Until that you can continue practicing the pairs of numbers until you're proficient enough to do this. Type any number without looking at the keyboard, so without that's go on to the number practice. 53. Nb12: so far, our first pair number one aunt to together, we should practice for 30 seconds back and forth like we did when we did the letters on the keyboard. So, of course, if you haven't already guessed it, the one you used, the small finger of your left hand on for the two. You use your ring finger of your left hand. So essentially using those fingers who pressed the one under two on. So we do it for 30 seconds back and forth so you would go 1212 It's on. Start slowly on Samake. Keep short. Make sure you keep accuracy on. Then slowly build up your speed. If you start, then getting the wrong keys, just slow slightly reduce your speed again until you can get back to accuracy on. Let your speed slowly build up from there is continued practicing. But just 30 seconds for this pair, and then you would move on to the next pair of letters on the next para next parents so on and so on. And then eventually you go back to the first pair. Want to again start all over again? Continue practicing that way 54. Nb13: The next number is three, which will practice with one. Do you already know which finger to use on one? That's a small finger of your left hand. Uh, the three. You used the longest finger of your left hand to press that. So that's actually the one is pressed with the finger used to press a Cubans at the same finger, the finger that used to press D, E and C. Use that to press three for once again back and forth, starting slowly, gradually building up speed to keep ocracy 1313 and so on. So do that next for 30 seconds and M will do 30 seconds for the next pair of letters. 55. Nb14: the next pair of letters is one and forth. We're learning the new left turnem number should, as a nice pair of numbers one and four. So we're learning, of course. A new number, which is four. So one You know which finger to use to press. Want a small finger the left on before you will use your index finger of your left hand to press that one. So the same finger used to press the F and R N B. So once again back and forth, starting slowly, gradually building it with speed for 30 seconds, one on four. 56. Nb15: next number is five. You practice that still with one. So one and five. The five you will use again your index finger of your left hand to press the five. So it used for the same number. So you your index finger like use it for F and G on the middle row. You also do the same for you. Numbers above. Use it for the four on the five. So no for the five. Practice one on five. Back and forth. Starting slowly. Andi, do that practice for 30 seconds on, then do the next pair of numbers. 57. Nb16: the next number to learn and practice is number six. No, the number six is you. You press that with the index finger of your right hand. So never starting to use numbers with our right hand. But the this I'm going to keep the pair of numbers all with the bond. So far, don't worry. You'll also practice in combination the other letters of the numbers together as pairs as well. But that will be in the practice sheets. But the purpose is here. Eyes learning which finger to use to press each number, Uh, in these videos. So one and six. So the one is with a small finger of the left hand. Of course, you know the six with the index finger of your right hand. So practice for 30 seconds, that pair of numbers 58. Nb17: on the next number is number seven continuing to practice along with the number one as a pair. At the moment, eso the seven again is your index finger of your right hand. So the index finger of your right hand essentially is used for the number six on the number seven. So we're gonna practice now slowly at first and building the speed up to keep accuracy. The one on the seven do that for 30 seconds on. Then we'll move on to the next pair of numbers. 59. Nb18: The next number is three number eight. So the eight use your longest finger of your right hand. So again, practicing with number one at the moment. That pair who do other pairs later on when you get your practice sheets so you get to practice all the numbers in in in combination. So for now, we're going to just practice one on the number eight. So start slowly and build up your speed keeping accuracy. So 1818 on a game member. It's the longest finger on your right hand for the number eight. 60. Nb19: The next number is the number nine on. You may have already guessed that being finger that you used to press the number nine is the ring finger of your right hand. The same one you used to press the letter l on, of course, the O and the full stop below. So again, one on nine together as two numbered combination practice starting slowly. These two numbers for 30 seconds on, then we'll move on to the last number. 61. Nb10: no for the zero on you will press that using your smallest finger on your right hand, the one that you used to press the semi colon and also the letter p and, of course, below the slash or the question mark of you. Hold down the shift key first, so one on zero. So the small fingers on both hands this time. So it's a smallest finger on your left hand for the one on the smallest finger in your right hand for the zero on to gain 30 seconds, starting slowly on. As you continue practice keeping accuracy, you build up your speed to become faster. 62. Numberspracticesheet: I know that I've shown you which fingers to use for each of the numbers across the top. You'll continue your practice off that using the practice sheets that you'll be able to download in the next lecture on those practice. Shoot then will get you to practicing combination a la the numbers in pairs. So the next one after that, the one on 21 and 314 on top 20 you'll be two in 345678 to 9 to zero. Moving on, then 23 and four reason we don't go three and Mourners because you've already done one in three on. We don't do two and three again because you've already done two in three. So we just start from the three up to the north impaired and go four and five because you've already done the three and four right. So back in 44 and five and so on, going through right up to get to the nine on the zero right at the end. So that's the practice. Sheeps, though, So in the next lecture you be able to download the practice sheets. So like in the previous sections. In the next lecture, you will see the screen, which will give you the link to download the practice sheet. So just simply click on that on download, and then you can use it on your computer screen side by side B, A word processor or, if you prefer, you can print it out. 63. Capitals: I'm gonna show you the easiest way now to practice doing capital letters on. Do you do that by pressing the shift key on your keyboard? Also, the shift key will be of what you reduce to access the characters which appear above another character on your keyboard. So if you look on the bottom right, you'll see the slash key on. There is a question mark above it. You will get the question mark by holding down the shift key and impressing that key. And I'll give you the question, Mark. So we look along the keyboard like above the numbers. Quite a few keys, have another option above thumb on. You get that by holding impression down the shift key. Now, you may already know that, Uh, no. You begin. We want to be learning how to press the shift key without actually having to look down at the keyboard, because otherwise it's going to slow us down. So there is a really easy way of doing that. So first we're gonna get used to which fingers you press used to press the shift key. So on on your left hand, your small key, that's the one you used to press the A on the home case. You slide that down to the left, okay, diagonally down to the left on press it onto the shift key. Similarly, on the right hand side, your usual small finger used to prepare a press the semi cool donkey on slide that down diagonally over to the right to press the shift key. Okay, so that's the fingers that you would use. But when you're not looking at the keyboard, you know, sliding, of course, making sure you know you actually hitting that key, sir, where we need to practice. So this is what you would do your parents want to recommend. And it's this. So, as you remember, in the earlier lesson, we talked about how to find the home keys on. That is by having your little fingers on the F off the left hand than the index finger of your left hand on the F key. Your right index finger on the Jakey. And remember, there was a little pump on that key so we could find it. So keeping on a So essentially keep your for the and if you want a capital letter on the let using your left hand. So, for instance, if you're using your right hand to press the letter that you want to be a capital, you would then use the left hand left hand to press the shift key on, then your right hand to press the key. You want to be a couple letter on vice versa. So on the left hand, you're pressing the letter to be a capital. You use your right hand, so the way I recommend that you do it so it is your left hand is too. Keep your index finger on top of that F key one where you can feel that little bump on it on, then slide. Keeping your index finger on that key. Slide your left finger diagonally down to the left on. Then hold that shift key. Whilst so essentially your index finger of your left hand will still be touching the F key while your little fingers slides across down, likely to pressed and hold down the shift key on your right hand. Be used to press the capital letter. That's what I recommend. That way you're not gonna moving your whole hand down onto the bottom keys because then you is going to slow down, going back, moving your hand back up to find the home keys again. Find the F key will keep your index finger on the F key the whole time as you pressing that shifty, similarly, with the right hand is the same thing. Keep your index finger of your right hand on the J the whole time. Eso your little fingers over the semi Koran. So keeping your index finger on the J slide it there in diagonally to the right on. That will give you the shift key so that then you can hold that down on. Press the letter with your left hand to get the couple letter there, so how to practice it? So here's away. It's really, really simple. So you could say All right, practice lots of text with capital letters at the start. You couldn't learn it that way. Um, I mean, obviously you you will be doing that as well. But as you progressed, however, to practice learning the shift key, it's a really simple two step method, right, So again, remembering to keep your index fingers on the F on the Jakey with your left on. Of course. One on your right hand. You then practice using your little finger moving that across whilst keeping your index fingers on those keys. As you get the shift key, you're gonna do that back and forth. So essentially, you would just simply flied your left finger. First diagnosed down and present. Hold the shift key on, then slide it back up to the again on then do the same with the right hand. Slide that finger there whilst keeping your index finger on the Jakey onto the shift key. Hold that and then back up again, and it's simply a case of just doing that over and over again, and then you will learn the shift key. 64. Spacebar: you may have noticed that so far I've not mentioned a particular key on the keyboard. The big, long one at the bottom of the keyboard, the space bar. There was a reason for that because you don't really need to practice that one to be able to press the space bar where they were looking at the keyboard. Because you're you will have your thumbs on top of that key the whole time that you're actually typing. So it just be a case of pressing your thumb down will that she left or your right thumb. Okay, depend on what lettered that you press s so it doesn't really require me to give you some drills trying to practice that. But you know, when you come to practice actual text typing text, your noble and there's a space between a word at the end of a sentence or whatever it is, simply press the space bar, done, uh, also to give you a new paragraph. The key on the right there the enter key, depending where it is on your keyboards, usually on the right to get a new paragraph, A new line Should I say on the word processor. I mean, you may have to maybe look at your keyboard the first few times, but you know that it's over to the right from your small little finger. So again, when you start practicing text actual text and moving down two paragraphs taking part us moving to new lines you after a while, get used to that as well, pressing the enter key. So I didn't really think it was a requirement to give You actually practice drills to learn those, because when you come to type in text to be fairly easy, so remember, you know when you have your fingers on those on home key. So the SDF left on the J. K l on the court. Semicolon fear right hand Your two thumbs will naturally rest on top of the space bar. So that's really all I need to tell you about the space bar under course. I did mention the enter key as well 65. Conclusion: So you have no learned all the keys and hopefully you've been practicing all the keys so that you're able to learn how to type. Know should be a type, every single key on your keyboard without actually having to look down. Uh, about it. Okay. So just keep up the practice. Remember the drills. 30 seconds. Each pair using your practice shoots cute during that day. T until you're proficient us. Keep slowly. Don't make mistakes. Only increase your speed gradually. So eventually you will. The more you do it easier or get on the faster you'll get as well. Eso do dual the pair's Believe me, this is the way the fastest way to learn how to touch type and be faster on the keyboard. Now with that continued practice So what I would suggest that you do A swell is this now is to practice actually typing riel text so simply just get you know, passages of text or whatever our next to your computer or on your computer next to, you know have the text on one side and oppose word process on the next. Just practice typing texts again. You know, my advice is slowly at first type slowly make sure its accuracy keep accuracy on, then slowly build the speed or otherwise. You try to go too quickly at first on your making. Mistakes were eventually going to be practicing mistakes on. You'll just be harder than to learn to get rid of your mistakes. So keep slowly. Just continue practicing text passages of text as often as you possibly can, and you will find your speed will get faster on faster and faster. And that's what I did to learn typing myself. Now I sincerely hope that you have enjoyed this course, but more than that, that you will be a much faster type ist to be more productive.
