What is the average age?
Most of the children who participate are around 10-11 years old. But we have even had very young participants of only 7 years old.
It is important that the reading level is good and that the child's hands are not too small to operate the keyboard properly.
We have also had outliers at later ages; for example, someone aged 80 has learned to touch type with TypeTopia.
Of how many lessons does the TypeTopia touch typing course exist?
TypeTopia consists of 19 modules, each with 5 daily assignments. In total, there are 95 tasks to do. That is more compared to other online typing courses, which is logical because at TypeTopia we teach you to touch type so you will never forget. And that just takes more time and practice.
How much should you practise each day or week?
When learning the keyboard, it is important to practise frequently with as few breaks in between as possible.
Elke dag opdracht duurt ca. 20 minuten. De dagopdrachten zijn zo opgebouwd dat we eerst beginnen met herhalen wat er vorige keer is geïntroduceerd. Daarna volgt een nieuwe letter of symbool waarmee voldoende geoefend wordt zodat je het de volgende keer weer weet te vinden.
If there are too many pauses between practice sessions, choose "Extra practice" from the main menu first. This will train only the previous exercises, strengthening the basis.
If you want to finish the course sooner, you can! But make sure you have enough breaks between the individual daily assignments. Do something else in between that does not require you to concentrate. For example, play outside, play sports, chill out...
How long can I take to complete TypeTopia?
We will help you until you have learned to touch type properly, hitting at least 120 strokes per minute.
Almost everyone finishes the course within a year. Of course, there are exceptions in case of illness or other personal situations that make you take longer.
If your child needs a longer period of time due to personal circumstances, please contact us within the contract period of one year so that we can make an arrangement.
There is no additional charge for this extension.
Want to transfer from another course?
