Student feedback from the Summer 2011 touch typing course
From the parents:
Thanks for responding to my son’s needs.
I liked it that the course was relaxed but with good discipline. The games were enjoyable and the course good value for money.
Good structure to the course.
It has given my son the confidence to try and do everything the correct way.

When I came I couldn’t touch type but now I am leaving – I can. Girl 8
I had no idea how to touch type, having spent 30 years on two fingers. I now know where all the keys are and which fingers I should use.
I liked that we could all do it together as a family.
I was glad of the opportunity for all ages. I liked the individuality and that there was no pressure. It was a brilliant and well managed class. The venue is pleasant with good parking.
I’ve learnt the keys and built up my confidence. It was well structured and catered well for all age groups together. An enjoyable four days. Thank you.
