eReflect Promotes Typing Practice Using Different Languages

Share Article

Learning to type is more than practicing typing accuracy with "home row only" or "left hand only" touch typing exercises. eReflect suggests that using different Roman-alphabet based languages is an effective technique for improving touch typing in a short amount of time.

Through touch typing practice a person acquires muscle memory; they learn which key matches with which finger and this can be easily transposed to touch typing in other languages.

The eReflect team revealed today that touch typing is in fact as creative as the typists wants it to be. Asserting that touch typing training can involve a wide range of creative exercises and drills, eReflect confirmed today how touch typing practice can be both entertaining and effective by using other languages to challenge the typist and turn typing exercises into a game.

In order to learn to type it's not necessary to only focus on repetitive drills and typing exercises. As the statement from the eReflect team reminds readers, fun techniques and approaches are everywhere. In today's announcement, the team representative illustrated this idea by discussing how touch typing can be improved through exercises that involve typing in different languages, particularly in languages like Spanish and German which use the Latin (Roman) alphabet. As an example of this technique, the eReflect team used its Ultimate Typing™ blog to provide readers and typists with multi-language text passages people can use to practice touch typing with.

As an eReflect representative said today, touch typing is an automated cognitive process and even if a person starts learning the basics of typing in their native language, whether that's English, Spanish, or German, these skills can be used and practiced in any other language written in the Latin alphabet. What this means is that anyone can improve their touch typing skills by practicing in a variety of languages just as long as they use the same alphabet, one that corresponds with the keyboard the typist is using.

Touch typing is a skill that can be approached in many complementary ways, explained the eReflect representative in the announcement today. Through touch typing practice a person acquires muscle memory; they learn which key matches with which finger and this can be easily transposed to touch typing in other languages. Learning to touch type through other languages makes practice challenging and rewarding since each language follows different rules of spelling, syntax and other linguistic patterns, thus allowing the learner to access comprehensive training and improve their touch typing in a balanced manner.

eReflect, designer and developer of Ultimate Typing™ software, encourages typists of all levels to try touch typing with texts in other languages to see for themselves how entertaining and effective such touch typing practice is in improving their typing skills.
