2009 Course

Student feedback from the 2009 touch typing course

Adults:

The course changed the way I look at typing completely. I liked the structure of sessions – concentration can wane and breaks for activities were brilliant. The teachers were excellent, very welcoming and efficient and I was impressed with the venue which was not cramped or stuffy.

The course got rid of my bad habits and now I have good ones! It was friendly and focused but needed to go on longer! The activities in the breaks were fun and good to avoid overwork and both teachers were excellent.

I am now on my way to touch typing. I liked going at my own speed. The activities were a good diversion, both the teachers were lovely, the organisation was very good as was the venue and directions.

The course highlighted what I need to do – got me started! I liked that we could go at our own pace. The activities were fun, even for us oldies! The teachers and organisation were excellent and the venue easy to find with lots of parking and airy, spacey rooms.

The course has allowed me to learn where the keys are and to type more quickly. The games were good and the activities made sure you knew how to look after yourself and the teachers make sure you knew everything before moving on. The organisation was very nicely done.
