My 10 year old wants to learn to type, not to be amazing at it but to be quicker and more efficient. As a child with handwriting issues due to hypermobility this is potentially something she will have to do in the future anyway so whilst she is keen I would like to encourage her.

Are there any good free download programmes for this for her sort of age?

Thank you

Dance Mat Typing on the BBC website is good - the voices of the different characters are irritating as fuck to adult ears, but it's accessible enough my 6 year old's been doing it from choice lots of half term.

My ds learned to type with this site.

But he got really good by doing coding, writing story on pc, doing research homework on pc etc, more practical way than just practice typing.
