What are some tips to increase my typing speed?

I hope someone can share some ways on how could I improve my typing skill. I am 19 years old and mostly using computer.


If you don’t already know how to touch type, you should look into learning to do so. Touch typing is the best way to type quickly and accurately, and is a great way to continually and steadily increase your typing speed for years to come.

If you’re currently learning to touch type and are struggling, my best piece of advice would be not to look at the keys, even in the very beginning of your touch typing journey. Peeking at your keyboard while learning to touch type can inhibit the learning process and may also hinder your overall typing speed, since you’ll want to double-check every keystroke as you go rather than focusing on your lesson or whatever project or document you’re working on.

Don’t worry so much about speed in the beginning, that will come with patience and practice - focus instead on accuracy and allowing your brain to memorize and map out the keyboard.
