To type accurately and quickly, you need to be very focused. This requires a high level of concentration and quick reaction time.

So even if you already type well, play these typing games anyway. They'll give you a more powerful brain!

All the fun typing games above follow the same basic rules. If letters fall down the screen, type the letters as you see them.

Or, if a word appears suddenly, type the word quickly and accurately.

The number one tip for becoming a better typist is to practice "touch typing". Touch typing is a method where you use muscle memory to find keys without having to look at the keyboard.

This method involves using all ten fingers and knowing the home row keys, from which your fingers reach out to other keys.

Strategies for Better Typing

Okay, so you figured out that you're not that great a typist. What are some more things you can you do about it?

To be an excellent typist, you need to do more than learn the position of the keys on the keyboard. You must form good typing habits, and try to avoid falling into bad habits.

Here are a few typing habits you should cultivate:

  • Position. Proper body/hand/arm position will decrease errors and fatigue. Keep your feet flat on the floor.

    Your chair should be high enough that your forearms are parallel to the desktop. Keep you head still when typing, and your eyes should only move enough to follow the line.

  • Peeking - Don't Do It! As tempting as it might be, don't look at the keyboard when typing. The goal is to force your brain to learn where the keys are without looking.

    Peeking sabotages this effort. Once you've learned the position of the keys, force your hands to make the corrections without help from your eyes.

  • Practice. The only way to "train" the neural connections between your brain and your fingers is to practice a lot. With enough practice you'll be able to touch type, meaning you never need to look at the keyboard. So practice, practice, and practice some more.

Proper hand position hasn't changed much in decades. Below is a keyboard typing chart from 1937. Listed on each finger of the chart are the keys that finger presses when typing.

It's the same as what's used today. Cool, huh?

So as you practice with these fun typing games, and when typing at other times, keep the good habits in mind. If you find yourself falling into bad typing habits, make corrections.

Stay focused on improvement, and you will get better at typing.
