Naturally, we want our children to learn to type, even if they don’t know how to spell (one is still working on the alphabet). Of course, they can just bang on the keyboard and have fun, but actual typing becomes a skill that lasts a lifetime (or, until Apple’s Siri takes all our dictation for us).
Here’s the tale of a typing tool that improves your typing skills, or can teach you to type.

This is how learning should be. Fun. Typing Tournament is a typing tutor app in the form of medieval worlds. If you improve your skills you may be allowed to take on the Dark Typist.
Whether you’re new to typing, or need to improve your skills, or you want to test yourself to see how good your typing skills really are, Typing Tournament is an intriguing way to do it.
As you type through the medieval worlds, including the Dragon’s Cave or the Throne Room, you’ll have lessons, practice drills, and three different typing games– and a progress test.
This is no ordinary game or commonplace instruction app. It’s training with a purpose and an attitude.
Typing Tournament uses the Multiple Progressions Model. Think of it as steps in a staircase. You get better as you take on new challenges.
There are 16 lessons with drills, games, and a progress test that runs across three maps. You even get a printed certificate of achievement as you reach new levels.
Typing Tournament is loaded with useful features. Track up to 10 different users (tournament players). View or print out statistics for each.
The animated interface is a bit over the top with the kid-friendly attitude but the learning and improving process is solidly professional.
There’s no easier or funner way to improve typing skills and have fun at the same time. Typing Tournament is good for children, too, though you may have to explain the medieval lifestyle and the objectives.
