TypingWeb has been helping the world learn to type for 10 years now, and what a trip it’s been. And while we’ve been enjoying our little site, and our millions of happy users, we decided to kick it up a notch.. BAM! And so we all sat down one day, and one of our crack team said, “What if we rebuilt TypingWeb from scratch.” Some of us snickered, and some of us stared wide-eyed. But then we all had a “hmmm” moment, and it clicked – why not?

And from that fateful comment, a new typing tutor was born. Not a scratch of code was reused. We laid out every feature we could dream of. “All new professionally designed skins?” OK! “Oh, I think we should support every major world keyboard format!” Sure. “Can we translate this so the entire world can use it?” I suppose so. And so, without further adieu, here’s a brief list of new features for your enjoyment.

What’s the best way to go about doing the lessons?

I suggest starting in order from The Home Row Keys in the beginner section.

Learning to type has been…refreshing if i could say it like that. but want to type faster so that i don’t look retarded while my friends can type faster than i can spell

How important is it that I use all of the assigned finger-key placements? There are a few keys that seem easier to hit with the opposite hand to that assigned, and perhaps a few keys that are easier to hit with different fingers than those assigned.
I am at the Advanced level –according to Typing Web!!–though I average around 10WPM when typing letters, capitals and a handful of the more common punctuation marks. I haven’t really integrated the number keys. I have a feeling that following the positions exactly will help integrate the keys in future lessons. Otherwise it’s kind of like the foundation of a building working just fine without a small ingredient, until the building is built on top of it!
My instinct tells me I should follow the positions EXACTLY as Typing Web teaches me. But I just want to hear other people’s opinions. Thanks.

It is VERY important! You will never be able to gain the speed you are looking for without learning the proper technique from the beginning. It is exactly as you said, the building would fall on a foundation that wasn’t built properly. Don’t start bad habits now that you will just have to break later!

That is definitely important, but is an entirely separate subject that we cannot cover on our current website. I’m sure there are many tutorials out there that address word processing skills.
