Why taking a course 'Touch typing' for adults?

Computers play an important role in our daily life . Wether this is for study, work or private use, being able to type fast is important for anyone and saves a lot of time. Writing emails, letters and reportsgoes faster when you can use 10 fingers instead of just 2. You have more time left for other, more important, tasks. And how much time (and money) is wasted when employees still use only two of their fingers when using the computer?! Also when you are searching for a job, being able to type with 10 fingers is a benefit for you.

When you are able to do your typewriting without looking down at the keyboard, you minimize the force on your muscels in your neck and shoulders. This reduces the change of severe damage in this area. A relaxed physical position reduces the chances on stress and RSI.

Research shows that being able to focuse on the text rather than the keyboard, your brains are way better to understand the text you are typing. There is no need anymore to focus on where to find the keys on your keyboard.
