Tux Typing

Let’s face it; typing has become just as important of a skill as reading, writing and arithmetic. Just as you practice reading with your children, writing their ABCs and teaching them basic math to get ahead of school children now need to practice typing.

Tux Typing is an easy to use, fun and designed to teach your child typing while cleverly camouflaging itself as a video game. Your child will help Tux the penguin feed himself fish and shoot meteors out of the sky by pressing the right letters on the keyboard. With five different scenarios inside of both games and four difficulties your child will be working with Tux for a long time.

The first scenarios are designed for young children learning their ABCs at the same time that they learn to type. During this scenario there are only letters to be recognized and the correct keys typed, which makes this particularly helpful for both typing and learning to recognize letters. As the difficulty of the scenario rises, the letters come along faster, increasing a child’s typing and recognizing speeds. Use of this program can result in a child knowing how to type before they can spell.

The remaining scenarios are for increasingly more advanced readers, differentiating between short (3-4 letter), medium (4-6 letter) and long (5-7 letter) words. As the difficulty of these scenarios increases, the benefits can be felt by just about anyone. Most adults will have trouble keeping up with the long word scenario on hard difficulty so don’t think of TuxTyping as just a tool for your young children but also older children and for yourself as well.

The final benefit to TuxTyping is probably the best: TuxTyping is freeware. Freeware means that you can try Tux Typing right now at no cost. TuxTyping is distributed through the GNU license, one of the most popular freeware licenses.

If you have children or you need to learn to type yourself, then you can’t go wrong with Tux Typing because if you download it and find you need something else then you haven’t lost a thing.
