What is different from TypeTopia for primary school?

tips to type faster

We have kept the best of TypeTopia. So we'll still take you on an adventure and the characters are the same too. And not to worry, there are still games to help you learn to touch type. But we have shortened the storyline and adapted the practice texts to suit the age.

  • Special practice texts for your age
  • Including Games and Challenges
  • Less intrusive storyline
  • Faster towards results

The advantages of touch typing

Beter performance at school


When you touch type you do not have to look at the keys to find the right lettters. So you can entirely focussed on what you want to type. This makes it easier to write a full answer or a better report.

Take notes during online classes

Nowadays, there is also more online teaching. If you can touch type, you can make good notes while looking at the screen. Of course, this also applies in class or later at university during lectures & presentations.

Prepared for the future

The computer has become an integral part of our lives. In secondary school, you probably already notice that you use the computer more and more. When you start studying, this will only increase.

And what about when you start working later? There is almost no profession you can think of in which you do not often come into contact with the computer. Chances are that you regularly see your parents working at home on a laptop, often typing with two fingers and constantly staring at the keyboard.

We also spend a lot of time in front of computers in our private lives, so learning to touch type is a huge advantage. Nice to have now, indespensable later!

How long does the TypeTopia touch typing course take?

We understand that in secondary school you already get a lot of homework and your time is valuable. TypeTopia is set up in daily assignments. Each day task takes approximately only 20 minutes.

You choose how often you want to practice per week in your online schedule. Five, three or four times a week. We do recommend that you do those 20 minutes at least three times a week. And, for example, in the weekend 1 or 2 extra assignments.

  • 5 x p/w = exam after 20 weeks
  • 4 x p/w = exam after 25 weeks
  • 3 x p/w = exam after 33 weeks

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...

Please note! TypeTopia takes a bit longer than other online touch typing courses. This is because we teach touch typing, guaranteed, so you become much faster.

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.

Each daily assignment takes about 20 minutes. The daily assignments are structured in such a way that we first start by repeating what was introduced last time. This is followed by a new letter or symbol which is practised sufficiently so that you will be able to find it again next time.

We understand that in secondary school you already get a lot of homework and your time is valuable. So you can choose how many days in the week you want to do a 20-minute assignment. We recommend you practise at least 3 times a week and, for example, do 1 or 2 extra practice assignments during the weekend.

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...

What is the average age?

Most children who have done the regular version of TypeTopia are around 10-11 years old. But of course it does not matter if you are older. You are never too old to learn. We have also had outliers to higher ages, for example, someone aged 80 has learned to touch type with TypeTopia.

The 13+ version is intended for children in secondary school. The year really does not matter. The storyline of the primary school version has been shortened and the exercise texts have been adapted to the age.

The typing games are actually really fun to do at every age.

Of how many lessons does the TypeTopia touch typing course exist?

TypeTopia consists of 20 modules, each with 5 daily assignments. In total, there are 100 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 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 everybody finishes the course wihin a year.
