I have encountered this site when I was having my training as a Nurse Coordinator in my previous job. My typing skill then was not so impressive. The first time I took this typing test, I only got 15wpm (yes, my typing skill was NOT so good). However, I got the chance to improve it. Not instantly of course but with the help of this site.
Compared with Touch Type Tutor, this is more fun to use. Aside from its unique way of getting your wpm (word per minute) count, you can get the chance to know some random news in the web. You can see yourself trying to finish the whole article in just a minute because you are so interested with the topic that you are typing. Thus, allow your typing skill to improve.
You can choose topics from Technology, Sports, Entertainment, Health and Business. Most of the time, I clicked the health and the business news because those two are the most interesting topics for me. You can choose your own. It’s just so addicting. You get to know something new and at the same time, getting your typing skill in place.
This is the page where you get to type the words that were gotten from BBC news. Yes, it’s from BBC news because I checked it myself. And it’s the most recent news you can see there.
However, I have discovered one great way to use this as you review your notes. Example you have a test and you want to review it, you can also use this site by clicking on MY TEXT and start pasting your notes there and those are the words that you will be typing.
As you type the words, you can also get the chance to remember each word and sometimes, you don’t only familiarize yourself but can also memorize them. (That is what I used when we had some test after the training. haha!)
Two birds in one stone. You get to review your notes and increase your typing speed.
I hope this could help you increase and improve your typing skill in a fun way.
Enjoy the fun guys!
PS: Thanks to my previous trainer Ms Julie who introduced this to us.
