About This Class

Let me show you how this Touch Typing course will help you:

First you will learn how to place your fingers correctly on the keyboard.

Then you will learn how to type your first two letters: F and J. Very simple, right? Right.

After knowing how to type your first two letters, you do exercises to practice your typing. The exercises so far will contain only these two letters that we have just learnt: F and J.

When you have mastered typing these two letters F and J, you move to your next lesson where you learn two more letters D and K. But this time, in the exercises, you practice touch typing four letters: D, F, J and K. As you can see, you review the letters F and J from the previous lesson and you practice touch typing the new letters D and K.

This process goes like this until we study all the letters!

It is important to mention that from lesson 5 we have very interesting exercises: we will exercise typing words that contain only the letters that we have already studied.

For example, if we haven't studied the letters B and Y, we won't have exercises that contain these letters (like Ball, Yellow, etc)

This course also covers CAPITAL letters and punctuation Marks.

So, by the end of this course, you will be equipped to type fast and accurately

I am sure you will enjoy this course that will give you this very important skill for life.

Many thanks and hope to see you in the course!

I am a polyglot from Mozambique. 31 years old. I speak and write 5 languages, namely

Portuguese (my native language), English (the first language I learnt when I was 15), French (the second language I learnt 5 years later), German (two years later, I learnt this language) and Arabic (still studying it to fluency).

I believe there is a better way to learn a language. It does not have to be that hard. Since I leant all those languages by myself, I found out better and faster ways to learn it. I am sharing those here with you.

For example, language learners try to memorize 100 words of a target language. After they memorize it, done. They memorize other 100 or 200 words. After 2000 words or more, they wonder why they cannot speak the target language, or even remember w... See full profile

1. 00 Course Overview: Hi, My name is Adam Mohammed. And welcome to the course. Touch typing may be easy from beginning mastery in typing in this video, I will give you an overview off the course. I will show you how this course is organized and how it can help you with your typing skills. So at the end of this course, you will be able to tap using your 10 fingers without looking at the keyboard and at a minimum speed off 60 words per minute. Let me show you how discourse is organized. First, you will understand the keyboard layout so they seize the keyboard layout that will be using in this course. So this is a quality keyboard, and also we have here on the right side off the letter L we have semi colon. This is the keyboard that will be using in this course, right. After understanding the keyboard layout, we will learn how toe set up dis keyboard on our computer for Meg and four windows. All right, After these preparation, we will have year. We will learn how toe type of the lattice F and J All right. First we learn how to place our fingers correctly on the keyboard. Then we learn how to have the letters F and J. All right, so we have year the keyboard layout, the first letters that will we learn our F and J. After we learn how to tap these two letters, what we'll do, we'll do some exercises. So here, let me show you the exercise that will be doing here there. So we learned these two letters F and J. That means the exercises will have only these two letters that we just learned here. Will type J J F F D J F F D J F f and so on finish here the speed 55 words per minute and so on. We have four exercises that you can choose and you can practice after you are good at it. What you will do, he's let me go bag here. Next we'll learn how to tap the letters D and K. All right now we know F and J now D and K, and the system is the same. You learn how you watch and learn how to type, and then you do the exercises. The exercises they contain. Only this two letters. OK, D and Cape or bad. Well, I should say, is that in the second exercises, as you can see right now, we we know we know no four letters DFJ and K. So the exercises will have these four letters. So that means we'll review F and J from the first pleasant. Then we'll practice deed and K from these second lesson, as you can see. And the third lesson will practice f we learn how to type s and l and will do exercises containing these six letters s and l Here they are. Okay, here they are s and help. All right, until we cover all the home row A and semi column. 12345678 All right, these are the letters off the home rope. Here they are. Now, With this exercise, we cover all the eight letters A s, the f J K l Semi colon. This is how will practice typing all these letters. All right after that will go further and we'll learn how to type e and I are. And you the process is the same. Let me show you will type, eat and I are And you let me show you that with these letters. T and o, let me add here T and O Okay, here they are tea and over here we have to taps off. Exercise is the first time they are random letters for us to practice typing this latest e And also we practiced typing t and also we review all the letters that we have already learned. As you can see, here they are. This is the first exercise and the second exercise words containing the letters T and O in the second exercise your practice typing the letters, the words, these words they contain Onley the letters that we have already covered. For example, we haven't studied the letters b and why for example, So you won't find these letters in these words. So this is a good way for you toe practice type, typing actual words that exist. And this way you will improve your typing speed. After that, we'll ran How toe type capital letters. So these letters here that we have already started we'll learn how to type all off them in upper case. All right then, as always, will do some exercises next. Well, type the letter C and comma here. See and coma. All right. Next G and H and V, T and AIDS and and I see next Dublin, mq and people W and Q and a pig next be and white finally said And ex, as you can see this way we will cover all these letters. So in each lesson we study two letters. We do exercises only then we move to the next lesson. After covering all these letters, what will study is will learn how to tide colon and semicolon. Okay, where is Colon? It's year Semi Colon is here then will study full stop and a comma here is full stop. Here is karma will review actually comma next question marks and exclamation mark, Where is each question Mark? Your is question mark. And here is Exclamation mark. Finally the last lesson will have dash but emphasis and quotation Mark here is Dash No, Dash is here. There is dash quotation mark and had entities. So this is everything that we have for you in this course. As you can see, the scores has for you lots off exercises for you to practice because you you will agree with me that it's not enough for you to know how toe type, how to type for you. You have to know how to type. But also you need the resources you need. The exercise is for you to practice actual typing. Okay, so this course has everything for you. After. As a said, after finishing this course, you will be able to Taib without looking at the keyboard. Okay, You will be able to attack without looking at the keyboard. You could be able type using your 10 fingers. You don't need to memorize anything. All right, Here. You don't need to memorize anything. You don't need to look at this at this picture while you are learning, because this will go to your mind automatically. I mean, after you practice, for example, F and J, you learn and you do Lords off exercise is what will happen is that you will end up memorizing it. Not by like had core memorizing. Okay, but with practice, for example, I myself I know how to type. But if you ask me where these letters are located, I will have a hard time telling you. But if I'm in front off a keyboard, for example. Here. Okay, I just type Would sailed trays. Or was or would order and so on. This is what will happen. I don't know where what fingers I I was using Type what? Let us adjust. Tap them. Click finish And my speed. 59 words per minute. And I committed zero mistakes. So at the end of the scores, you will be at this point or even better. Okay, I say minimum speed is 60 words per minute, but I believe you can do much better than that. So thank you very much. 2. 01 Understanding the Querty keyboard layout: Hi. Welcome in this lesson. We're going to learn about the keyboard layout that will be using in this course. This is the keyboard layout that will be using this is called quality because off diesel letters right here. Q w e rt. And why? When you read these letters, you say clarity. That's why this keyboard is known as clarity. This is the keyboard that will be using in this course. Also, another point is that we have the letter l here on the right side off this letter. Hell, we have the semi colon, as you can see. So this is another point. We have the letter l on the right side off the letter l we have semi colon. So two points. We have to remember. The first point is that on the up up here, we have Q, w e rt and white. So thes keyboard is quality because off these letters up here and we read them as quoting the second point is that we have the letter ever here on the right side. Off the letter l we have semi colons. As you can see, there are other quality keyboards like this one. This is also clarity. We have here kill W e rt and why? But on the right side, off the letter l we have this letter here. See Sevilla. See, it's a dealer, so we won't be using this keyboard. Disk aboard is used by 40 days speaking. People describe Ortiz used to type particulates. I won't be using this keyboard, though it's quality, but because we don't have a semi colon on the right side off the letter L we won't be using this keyboard a keyboard and that will be using is this one because it's quality. As you can see, it's quality also let the air and semi colon down here. Also, you have to know that there are the keyboard layouts that are antiquity. For example, this one this is not quality. This is a 30 we have a Z e rt and why so the skateboard is mainly used when you want to type French. Okay, this keyboard is toe type French. This is toe type Portuguese. Okay, this is this is used to type Portuguese, so we won't be using these keyboards. The keyboard that will be using when this course is this one two points. When you want toe, identify the keyboard layout that will be using in discourse to u W E R T. And why is the first point you have to remember? The second point is that we have the letter l and on the right side we have semi colon. 3. 02 How to set up input source for Mac: in this lesson. We're going to learn how to set up English s our input language in thes computer. So we have here a Mac system in order for us to set up English as our input language. What we do, we click this April logo, then we click system preferences. Now we have re assistant preferences. We click keyboard. We have year keyboard, text shortcuts and input sources. This is what we want. Input sources. So we click here. We have Portuguese as our input source. So we want to type English. What? We do the click here. We select English. Now let me choose USA us. So you see here this is the keyboard layout that we started in the previous lesson. We have clarity. Okay. Q w e rt. And why we have you the letter l on the right side off the letter l we have semi column. So this is the keyboard layout that we want. We click ed. We can also now we have here to input sources for two gates and English. That means I can type Portuguese and I can type English. Let me add Arabic, for example, can come here Arabic Arabic PC and Ed, As you can see here, this is the keyboard layout for Arabic. So you see that this is a different keyboard layout? Okay, we have rear the Arabic letters on the keyboard. So what we want, we want these keyboard here. Let me add another language like Greek, for example that may select it. And now now we have four input sources. English of the United States is Arabic, Greek and Portuguese. That means if I want to type or Tagus I select this keyboard. If I want to type Greek a select this keyboard and I want to type Arabic, I select this keyboard. And if I want to type English, I select these keyboard. Another point is show include menu in menu of birth. This is very important. Okay. When we have these select like this So we see the flag here you click here and you select the input source that you want. If you want to talk Portugese, you select Portuguese. If you want to type Greek, you select it here. Also English. You select it here. So if you and check this you won't see any flag up here. So it's very important for you to keep this checked like this. Now let me close or I can put this right here. Okay, so this is our physical keyboard. You see that? This keyboard is quality we have here Q w e rt. And why This is a quality keyboard. Also, we have here the letter l on the right side of the letter L We have seen Sevilla Seaside villa. So that means this is a Portuguese. That means this is a Portuguese keyboard. Okay, I use this. Keep word to type Portuguese. But right now you have to understand that this physical keyboard this is an important What is important is the input source that we have year. Okay, If I want to attack Portuguese, I select Portuguese. Then I type a s the F and so on. So my keyboard, my physical keyboard is particulates. Also, my input source my in court source is also particulates. So this is the same. And there is no problem. We have you the letter l as you can see also see Sevilla. Okay, that isn't But if I select English as my input source So I am really the particulates keyboard and as input source I have English. So what will happen? Everything will remain the same. But ah heavier. L on the right side, off the letter l on the physical keyboard. I have see Sevilla. But if I click here, I see Semi Colon. All right, I see here. Semi Colon. Why? This is happening. This has happened because I have this input source selected as you can see here we have us A We have the's layout here. This is square T on the right side. We have on the right side of the letter l we have semi colon. So this is what will prevail. All right, These physical keyboard here it has said Sevilla. But what will prevail is these semi colon right here. Okay, so if I click here I see semi colon because the include source is this one. If I select for example Arabic. If I select Arabic PC You see that everything changes right now I don't have any more quality. What I have is this Arabic characters. Okay, Arabic alphabet. So let me select Arabic as my input source. I have selected it now let me Tyler Clarity! So cue w t rt and why we have your equality. But when I type, I don't see any to you. Right here. What they see is this Arabic letters. Okay, so once again, you see that what is important is the input source. So if you want to type English, you don't worry about the key border to have you may have there with you and English keyboard. That's cool. But you have to make sure that your input source is also English. For example, if I select Greek, it will change instead of Arabic. Now, I selected Greek as my input source. So right now you see Greek. Okay, so this is how it works. What? This means that if you want to type English, you have to make sure that English is your input source. You don't worry much about your physical keyboard. You may have an Arabic keyboard or and whatever keep what you have, but it doesn't matter. These letters engraved here they are not important. What is important is that you select English as your input source. And what you know about Europe keyboard layout is that it is quality, as we learned in the previous lesson, Also, what we learned is that on the right side, off the letter l we have sent me Kahlan. So we have clarity. And on the right side, off the letter l we have semi column. Doesn't matter that you are. You are saying that you see right now, See, Sevilla, it's not important, OK? You can see an Arabic script right here, or let me see Greek whatever Chinese. But if you selected English as your input source on the right side off the letter l you will have semi column. So this is the keyboard layout that we want. We want this keyboard layout. So we select us as our input source. We are selecting this input source because well, heavier quality. Okay, we will be using these clarity keyboard layout also, we have semi colon on right side off The letter l 4. 03 How to set up input source for Windows: If you are using windows and you want to set up English as your input source, this is what you do.

All right, now what I do is the following after adding the input sources that I want. Actually, I just want English from the United States. But I also added this one for you to say that your physical keyboard is an important. What is important is for you to select the right input source. So after adding my in court sources, I select and vested advancing settings. All right, here. I have a year. I have advanced it. Sentence override for Windows, no override for default input, no stretching input method of these third option 1st 2nd and third I click here. Options. All right. Hear a click Options.

Now let me select docked in the task bar because it's better. Okay, it's here. Let me select English from the United States. Okay, so everything's fine. I click. Okay, now let me quick back also, what's important for us to see is that for the English from the United States I have options. Okay? Options also perf you So this is the keyboard layout that we want. This is quality as we learned get its appear quoted also we have on the right side off the letter l we have semi cordon. This is the input source that we won't Okay, it's quality also on right side. We have semi column. If I select, for example, Arabic, okay. And a quick review. I see just the Arabic characters Arabic lettuce. That means if I type and we're on my keyboard, I, uh the result will be these Arabic letters as we saw it in the previous lesson. So let me close it. And we have here this physical keyboard let me select English as my import source. So I click a s the all right f g h and so on. But here here we have the letter l as you can see on the right side in this physical keyboard, and we have already talked about it in the process lesson. But let me repeat it again. Okay. We have here D letter l l also, we see on this physical keyboard that we have D c Sevilla Okay, But when we click, the result is semi colored. Why is it because we selected English as our input source? Okay, this is this layout is a Portuguese scored against because off the sea said a lot. If I select Portuguese from Portugal now it's like this. We click this seaside villa and the result is seats. Sevilla, as you can see. So once again you see that this physical keyboard is an important. What is important is for you to have the right input source that you wound with one to board. You can type any language you want. For example, if I want to type Arabic, I select on a bit curious. Then I type all taboo una. The book is here. Okay, so this is a party gates keyboard. I just right Arabic because I selected Arabic as my input source. Now let me change. I select Portuguese as my input source and all right, believe Rukh a star I keep or all right.

The book is here. The couple is sweet. Okay, Same keyboard. I don't know Greek, but if I knew it, I could select the Greek and time Greek, but I don't know, but you see, you see the result. The result is that when you select Greek and you type using the's propagates keyboard, the result is Greek characters. Why? Because you selected drink as your input source. So once again you have tow. Understand that if you want to type English, you have to select English as your input source. Maybe you have already English selected as your input source. But it's better for you to check once again if everything is fine. Because we'll be using English as our keyboard layout type throughout the course.

We are going to learn how to place our fingers on the keyboard. This is the keyboard. So we place our fingers correctly like this. Okay, so this is the right position off the fingers on the keyboard. As you can see for the left hand, the pinky finger is on the letter. A the ring finger on the letter s the middle finger on the letter deal and the index finger on the letter f like this. So a s the f a S d f a as the f As for the right hand, we have the index finger on the letter J. This is the index finger, the middle finger on the letter cape in the ring finger on the letter l and the pinky finger in the semi colon. As you can see, J k l and Semi Colon. All right, So this is how we place the fingers on the keyboard. As you can notice the F and the J case, they have these little protrusions. Okay, They are here to help you place your fingers correctly on the keyboard without looking at the keyboard. So when you make this move and you'll find these natural protections. You know that you index finger is on the letter f and you are the index finger off the right hand is on the letter J. So please remember that the lettuce F and lettuce J they have these little protections toe help. You place your fingers without looking at the keyboard like this. Okay, I'm not looking and I am placing correctly. Why? Because I know the index fingers. They should rest on this case. And the other fingers, The place they are arresting correctly in their places. Now we have this thesis parents. Okay, left hand and right hand. They arresting you? Call it in the space bar. That means that you can okay the space bar. You can type it with the left hand with the left time or the right time. As for me, what I did just I decided that I will always type the space bar with the right hand like this. I don't have toe. Think about right now what? Some will use toe type the space bar, Whether it is the left or the right son, I decided to every time type the space bar with the right, Sam. So when a type and it's time to type when I'm typing and it's timeto to press the space bar . I just used the right term every time. So this is how you place your fingers on the keyboard. Also, you have to know that is eight. This eight case A s, the f J k l semi colon. They're known as the home row because this is the basic position off your fingers when they're not doing any typing, they're just here resting, so they should be every time here. Okay, If you want to make a move, type for example. You want to tap the letter t your tap it and you go back to the home row to the basic position. Also, What we have to know is that we use the pink finger off the right hand like this type the enter key. As you can see, this is the move you are typing and you make this move like this. Okay, type and enter. Enter if you want to tap the back space, it's the same between finger like this. And you go back to this basic position. Okay? Your fingers should always be at home row when they're not doing the job off typing like this and er okay. Dark, select everything I want to delete. Click here. Okay, I am typing English. And if I want to delete a creek like this and it should always go back, the same happen. School Enter. Okay, so what is lesson? What you should know is that you should always place your fingers in the emerald. The Homaro are the case a s D f j k l Semi colon. So your place your fingers like this. Ok, a s the f j k l Semi colon. Also, you noticed that the lettuce f, the kids F and J have these little provision in order for you to place correctly your fingers without looking at the keyboard. If you're coming like this and you'll find these little petitions, you know that your terms, your index should be here and the other fingers they come in place. Now you're fams.
