Student feedback from the Easter 2011 touch typing course
I think the course is perfect already and it is fun.
I can now touch type.

It helps a lot to touch type. You can learn the whole alphabet too.

I liked making new friends. The teachers were encouraging and helpful.
The activities were fun and you got to know other children.

From the parents:
Excellent software, teachers and venue, excellent. Great feedback from my seven year old son. Good value for money. Parent
I’m hopeful that I will now persevere and not regress to looking at the keyboard. The pace is steady and the variety of software is very helpful. I can’t think of anything that could be improved about the course and the teachers, organisation and venue were very good. Father and Student
This course has helped my children both with typing and confidence about trying a new activity. I liked the programmes which were geared towards the right age group. Can’t wait to do it again! My children liked the activities a lot and thought the teachers were fabulous – mentioned their kindness. I thought the cost was very fair. Parent
I liked the duration of the course. My children are now able to type using home keys and not looking. It was disciplined, fun and results producing. Good value for the results. Parent
I will recommend this course it is short and efficient. Parent
Soon to be Teenagers:
I liked being able to have fun while learning a very useful skill. The teachers were great and taught us in a fun way. An extra day would have been good though.
I am much faster and more accurate. The teachers are very experienced.
So now I can do my homework faster. It had games and I learned a lot.
I am nearly at secondary school and there will be a lot of work on the computer. If I can touch type – I will be fast. All the games were not boring, they were fun, so you really engaged and learned a lot. The software was good and teaches you a lot and made you want to keep going. The teachers were really nice and encouraging, they made a big effect on learning touch typing.
It helped me type quicker and I liked the games, really enjoyed the software and the activities were fun. The teachers were very kind and the venue nice.
I have learned all the rows and punctuation marks off by heart.
It has helped me improve my typing speed and accuracy. It is friendly, fun and enjoyable. The teachers are very nice and helpful and the course is efficient and organised. The venue is clean and comfortable.
