In our first three lessons we covered the first three rows of the keyboard. This
being our fourth lesson, we shall, in keeping with custom, cover the fourth row.
The number row. speed typing lesson
The left index finger will control the 4 and 5 keys, the right
index finger will control the 6 and 7 keys.
The left middle finger will control the 3 key, the right middle
finger will control the 8 key.
The left ring finger will control the 2 key, the right ring finger
will control the 9 key.
The left little finger will control the 1 key, the right little
finger will control the 0 key.
The number row.
LF = little finger, RF = ring finger, MF = middle finger, IF = index finger
The number row presents a unique challenge to the typist. It is the furthest
from the typist's finger's resting position, the home row. These exercises
will attempt to accustom you to the range of movement your fingers must achieve
when dealing with a mixture of alpha-numeric keystrokes.
We shall also, in this lesson, build on our use of the shift keys and capital
letters introduced in the last lesson. To test your geography, and because we felt
the pun too fine to overlook we shall make extensive use of capitals, in our practice
While your fingers hone their skills you can also dream a little as names of
far flung places evoke memory and imagination. What wonders these places may hold,
what customs its people practice and what mysteries you might there unravel.
When you are ready to begin the lesson select an exercise and strike the key
requested. Try not to look at the keyboard, it will be difficult at first but as
the exercise progresses you will find it becomes easier and your fingers will begin
to move without you consciously deciding which finger is associated with which key.
Before you begin typing make sure you are sitting up straight, your feet flat
on the floor. Keep your elbows close to your body, your wrists straight and your
forearms level, and remember to take regular breaks.
As before, you may find it helpful to quietly say the name of the key
as you strike it. Don't let your mistakes cause you to lose heart, touch-typing
is a skill that can be learnt by practice.
Repeat each exercise at least three times.
