Why is typing speed important?
Whether you are applying for a job as an office assistant or a paralegal, being able to type quickly and correctly is maybe the only difference between you and another applicant that is equally qualified as you are. At the Speak Academy, we will do our best to improve your typing in Italian in the shortest possible time.
Benefits of good posture
When you are learning how to improve your typing speed it is also important to have a good posture. Probably you heard many times at your home, school to stand up straight! Comments like that might be annoying but they are not wrong. Your posture, the way you hold your body while you are sitting or standing it is a foundation of every move that your body makes. We are already spending too much time sitting at work or home in front of the computer. If you don’t hold your back straight it can affect your learning. You will feel fatigue and you will easily lose your focus and concentration. Good posture is very important! Stand up straight and be open for learning.
The right-hand positions
To increase your typing speed, you should learn the right-hand positions. First, we need to learn the order of the letters on our keyboard. The left fingers should cover the letters ASDF. The pinky is on the A, the ring finger is on the S, the middle finger is on the D and the index finger is on the F keystroke. Your thumbs are on the spacebar. Now, let’s learn about your right fingers positions JKL; the pinky is on the semicolon (;), the ring finger on the L, the middle finger on the K and an index finger on the J and the right thumb is also on the spacebar. You will use your left index finger for the letter G and your right index finger for the H. When you put all the fingers on the right place you should practice typing those letters. This will increase your typing speeding. Now when you are ready we can try to type some basic Italian words such as:
Per favore. Please.
Grazie. Thank you.
Prego. You’re welcome.
Mi scusi. Excuse me.
Mi dispiace. I am sorry.
Buon giorno. Good morning.
Buona sera. Good evening.
Those are phrases that Italian people are using in everyday communication. This is a good exercise for you to learn words and phrases and to increase your typing speed.
Learn how to type without looking at the keyboard.
