I jumped at the opportunity to send my kids aged 7 and 8 to learn touch typing. My kids both loved their first class with Judy at South Coogee Public School. My daughter is raving about her ‘first trophy’ and my son can’t stop telling me how fun the games were.
Most people don’t see the benefit to touch typing until they are in high school or the work place where they have to start typing every day, then they find it very hard to find the time to learn to type and difficult to break old “two finger” habits. I learnt to type 20 years ago, it is the best skill I ever learnt.
