Fun in practicing

How to incorporate fun when practicing?


A fun way to improve your typing speed is to practice with text that is familiar and/or interesting to you. For instance, touch type your favorite poem, or excerpts from your favorite book.

By practicing your touch typing while engaging with an activity or subject matter you find enjoyable, it makes the process much more pleasant. You will improve your typing speed without even realizing the effort you’re putting into it!

Hello, @antonywood!

Typing practice does not need to be a mundane task! You can utilize typing games to help keep yourself engaged. Aside from keeping lessons fun, typing games allow you to track your progress, focus on areas of weakness, and practice hand-eye coordination, a skill much needed in touch typing.

Luckily, since touch typing relies so heavily on muscle memory, anything you do on a keyboard could technically be considered practice. As long as you are being careful about hand placement, anything you do on a computer will be strengthening your typing ability. Sometimes just reframing your thoughts to think about it positively like this helps with motivation!
