My 6 year old is just beginning and my 2 other children have been typing for a few years. This program meets all of their needs! Well done, fun and creative while allowing the parent/ teacher to control many functions.
My children (ages 6, 8, 11) beg to "play the typing game." Since I have bought this program, they don't ask to play video games anymore. So I am pleased that it keeps them engaged, and they enjoy doing the exercises. They are learning to type, but are enjoying the process. I also like the fact that the selections of passages for typing practice are very good, chosen from classical literature.
We had tried another Touch Typing computer program previously, but my children found it quite tedious and it died out. I was excited to find this product and, so far, they are really enjoying it and often come and report back on their speed and accuracy with much excitement. They enjoy the 'game' aspect as well as the added feature of choosing from a large variety of music to accompany their lesson. I have, however, found it too difficult for my 7 year old in terms of finger co-ordination at this stage, but my 11 and 10year olds are doing well.
