A Fun Way to Learn Typing Very Fast

Learning to type has to be the commonest skill that almost everybody knows these days. However, it should come as a surprise if you get to know that only a limited percentage of people can type in the right way! Now, there may be some confusion regarding the correct method of typing. Ask yourself these two questions? Question number one: do you use all the ten fingers while you type? Question number two: can you type constantly without even glancing at the keypad? 

Helping to practice

Actually, not even highly experienced computer users can claim to answer affirmatively to both questions if they do not have the practice. For example, many people may be able to type rather fast, but they only use their index fingers and thumbs mostly. It requires practice, and as responsible parents, you should definitely consider introducing your kids to good online tutorials. You can find highly innovative dance mat typing lessons that help kids to learn to type scientifically. 

These are colorful flash animation lessons that are very attractive. They immediately connect with the attention span of even the most restless children and keep them engaged for hours while learning a new skill. Not only that, you would find cool animated animal characters who will be online tutors for the kids, helping them through the lessons. 

Introduce them to the wonderful typing lessons and find them soon becoming friends with the yak, the rooster, the hippo, goat, the snake, Queen Ant, the Ninja Turtle, Flamingo, and the Giraffe. These helpful ‘tutors’ not only help with the lessons but also celebrate the completion of the lessons with a colorful ‘musical show’. So, you see, the kids willingly complete the lessons fast just so they can enjoy the wonderful show at the end. It is an incredibly fun way to teach something so useful. The way they classify the teaching program into various modules, it is impossible to forget it anytime. 

Step by step to success

There are two main aspects of this typing schedule. Firstly, you learn to be familiar with the placement of keys on the keyboard through step by step modules. Parents should see that kids are comfortably taking as much time as they need! The only important aspect is not to skip a lesson. The dance mat typing guide by bbc is available in 12 successive chapters, and missing any one in between disrupts the rhythm of learning. It also hampers the scientific process by which the lessons have been designed. 

The foundation lessons classify the entire exercise into several simple formats. For instance, first, you learn to place your fingers only on the alphabets a, s, d, f, and g. Then, you proceed to h, j, k. and l. As you already know, these alphabets are in the middle row of the keypad. Similarly, other lessons attend to q, w, e, r, t, y, and others, one lesson at a time. Memorizing the positions of the keys with fingertips takes you to the second most important aspect of the typing lessons. Essentially, it assures that the learner is using all the ten fingers simultaneously. 

Something motivational 

At first, this should take significant time, and even the simplest of words can prove to be time-intensive. However, as kid-friendly typing lessons are, a good tutorial would not keep track of the words per minute right from start. Such picking upon the less typing speed can definitely discourage the young heart to continue farther, and so keep the lessons incomplete. Every creative process must have a natural rhythm. Anything that is really useful ought to be a creative thing to practice. Whether you are painting anything, playing an instrument, singing a cool song, writing poetry, or making sculptures, you must allow the necessary scope. 

It is vital to retain the attention span and keep practicing. Many parents worry that their children suffer from attention deficit syndromes such as ADHD. Let not these things limit you? Do you know that even the well-known Washington DC rapper Wale is a patient of ADHD, as he revealed in the latest interview? Along with it, he also once revealed that he suffers from acute depression and went through many difficult moments in life. Even then, the rapper had been able to achieve a lot as you can find

Life stories like these are definitely inspiring, but it is time to get back to the typing lessons for kids. If you are thinking about providing a really creative way to help the children learn their lessons during the vacations, without any stress, check out fun online lessons. Everything turns out to be simple when it is done in the right way. So, you must check out those that are encouraging, colorful, and creative. Besides learning this crucial skill, the happiness of seeing the kids beam with joy at their accomplishments is a great reward in itself.  

Wale Shares Details, Reveals Producers for Forthcoming Album ‘Shine’

In January, Wale became the first rapper to open a president’s State of the Union Address. Barack Obama took to the podium for his final SOTU speech as Commander-in-Chief after the D.C. rhymer delivered his hits “Chillin’,” “LoveHate Thing” and “White Shoes” at the White House viewing party (Jan. 12). At the end of his set, Wale also announced his fifth album Shine.

Two months later, Wale repped his native city once again as the headliner for the Events DC Presents Music showcase, hosted by the Washington DC Economic Partnership at the Historic Scoot Inn for Austin’s SXSW festival on Tuesday night (March 15). During his set, Folarin offered more details about his forthcoming project, teasing that it would arrive in a “couple of months.” He also debuted a new track called “Pretty Young Thing.”

“It’s a little bit more melody and shit ’cause I been on some, like, I don’t want to call nobody to do my hooks no more,” he tells Billboard after his performance. “I want to do it myself but just as an evolution as an artist.”

Wale admits that during the creative process, he’s penned material for another artist that may end up his own. “I’m also writing for other artists so sometimes I may sing a song I wrote for somebody and I’ll be like, ‘Eh I like it. It’s me.’ even if it may not be performance good,” he said without offering specific names.

He even nodded Lil Wayne for his dual talents. “Lil Wayne said something in an interview where he’s like, ‘Yo I want to be the best at everything.’ or like, ‘I want to be a great rapper but if I write a song, it may not be the best vocally but I wrote it and you’ll get what I’m saying.’,” he explained. “I’m conveying the emotion so that’s what I’m trying to do currently with this new shit.”

But don’t start calling Wale a rapper slash singer just yet. “I’m not trying to go full R&B or nothing like that,” he offers. “I just wanna make vibes.”

On the production side, the  revealed that he is working with beatsmiths Nez and Rio, Diplo, Beat Billionaire and Metro Boomin’. He kept a tight lip on features, tough. “I just want to make sure the business is straight on those,” he said.

Beyond rap, Wale — who scored his second No. 1 album on the Billboard 200 with 2015’s The Album About Nothing – says he is serious about starting his own pro wrestling company. The long-time WWE stan (his favorites include Shawn Michaels, Rey Mysterio and CM Punk) says, “It’s a great business and I don’t know anybody with my point of view [who] has ever attempted to do it.”

Wale Performs at President Obama’s State of the Union Address, Announces Fifth Album ‘Shine’

Wale opened President Barack Obama’s State of the Union address (the first rapper to open an SOTU) for a special performance at the White House viewing party on Tuesday (Jan. 12). The DMV MC ran through a string of his hits including “Chillin’,” “LoveHate Thing” and “White Shoes” according to clips posted on Twitter.

Last year, Wale stopped by 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue twice — once in January as part of the guests for Obama’s gun control speech and again in July, teaming with Michelle Obama as part of the First Lady’s Reach Higher initiative aimed at encouraging every student in America to complete their education beyond high school.

After his performance, Wale also announced the name of his fifth studio effort, the follow-up to his second No. 1 album on the Billboard 200, 2015’s The Album About Nothing. “My name is Wale. My fifth album. Shine. 2016,” he said. 


Wale has tried it all: go-go, pop, bombastic trap, soul samples, braggadocio, introspective soul-bearing. And through it all the DC native has never felt quite at home as he does on his fourth album. With a title that harkens back to the mixtape that helped him catch fire, The Album About Nothing finds Wale at a place of peace. He’s not Zenned out like Rick Rubin; his problems haven’t all fallen away, but instead he seems to have come to grips with the realities of his career. Maybe that’s helped along by his idol Jerry Seinfeld who acts as a sort of polestar for the album. The production here is fresh and urgent, giving Wale’s staid flow more grunt and his melodic choruses more of a lush boost, such as on album standout “The Need to Know” featuring SZA. “Still know what my core needs, so f*ck who ignores me,” he raps on “The Helium Balloon.” Let’s hope Wale holds steady to that epigram. —Damien Scott
