Full Description

Unlike other typing tutors, Englishtype Junior  is designed to maximise additional educational benefits at the same time as teaching typing.We recommend Englishtype Junior for Primary pupils or for older children if they have Specific Learning Difficulies.

Englishtype Junior  is excellent in the classroom and for mixed ability groups; challenging the brightest children whilst providing extra help for Special Needs children. The inclusive design means all children can use the same program and work at the same time, but at their own pace  It has a Special Needs friendly design, including:

  • a multi-sensory approach
  • strong colour coding
  • visually simple & uncluttered presentation style
  • both spoken & written instructions
  • choice of background screen colours
  • highly structured content

Englishtype uses a unique colour coding system to build learning quickly and efficiently. Learning key & finger relationships as rapidly as possible is the main aim of any typing tutor. Supporting this link is an integral part of Englishtype’s unique design.


For schools, Englishtype Junior has a detailed Teacher Administration package including a Class Management function, certificates, printing & exporting results

Englishtype uses short, motivating lessons and arcade-style games to encourage painless practice. There are 12 lessons each with 3 compulsory sections and 2 providing the opportunity for extra practice and 6 games. Individual key accuracy is displayed after each lesson to identify any problem areas.
