How to learn to type 9

When typing, type each line to the end, that is, to the entire width of the page (both now and in all subsequent exercises). To make a new line, press “Enter” with the little finger of the right hand. With the same little finger, press “Backspace” if you need to adjust the text.
Let's start:

  • f f f f f f f f
  • j j j j j j j j j j
  • fa fa fa fa fa
  • jak jak jak jak
  • al; al; al; al;
  • dad dad dad dad dad
  • lad lad lad lad ladd
  • asdf asdf asdf asdf
  • jkl; jkl; jkl; jkl; jkl;
  • fdsa; fdsa; fdsa; fdsa;

and so on.
After typing this text, start making up your words. Work creatively, it will be more pleasant for you if you do this.
That's all for the first day. The more you do, the better.

Good job again, Oleks! You are right, practice makes perfect! When I first learned how to type, I did not practice enough and I faced a lot of problems when I actually started to work using my typing skills. Now I know that before you get to the real work, you need to practice to master the skills you need.

Thank you Ali! I can only confirm your words. At first it’s worth a little work, so that later it will be easier.

When typing, type each line to the (very) end, that is, to fill the entire width of the page (both now and in all subsequent exercises). To make a new line, press “Enter” with the little finger of the right hand. With the same little finger, press “Backspace” if you need to adjust the text.

Let's start:

 

    f f f f f f f f

    j j j j j j j j j j

    fa fa fa fa fa

    jak jak jak jak

    al; al; al; al;

    asdf asdf asdf asdf

    jkl; jkl; jkl; jkl; jkl;

    fdsa; fdsa; fdsa; fdsa;

 

and so on.

After typing this piece of text, start making up your words. Work creatively, it will be more pleasant for you if you do so this.

That's all for the first day. The more you do (practice), the better.

Good job Oleks! With practice you do get better. You have certainly improved in your language skills.

Practice a little more with pronouncing the word creatively- https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ahz9iwU0GgA

Hi Oleks,

You are right - when we learn a new skill, it is important for us to find ways of working creatively. This makes the learning process as enjoyable as possible. :)

Another fantastic, clear and informative post.

Just a couple of (very) minor observations

1. When typing, type each line to the end, - This bit is not so clear. I would change it to "make sure your sentences fill the entire width of the page". Does that make sense?

2. with the little finger of the right hand - again, you are speaking directly to the reader. "with your little finger on your right hand"

Hi Ed! Thank you! I need to memorize better about replacing "the" with "your". Your first suggestion is perfect!
