How old do you have to be to type?

I am 12 and I was wondering how old do you have to be to type???

Hello, @agarcia34!

You are the perfect age for learning how to type!

Practicing good keyboarding skills is good for any age, but it is recommended to start no earlier than age 7 to allow for full development of the literacy and motor skills necessary. Younger kids will develop muscle memory skills quicker, but older kids will be more comfortable with reading and writing, so somewhere in between is best.

Good luck in your typing journey! Make sure to come back and update us on your progress!

Older than four. Their is no real minimum requirement, starting early is always good though.
