Touch - typing technique
How does touch typing method work? Everything is simpler than can seem. The keyboard is divided in areas; moreover each area corresponds to appropriate quantity of fingers, for instance keys QAZWSX should be typed with a little finger. The position of hands also depends on areas; your left hand's fingers should be placed on home row keys ASDF and your right hands' fingers should be on keys JKL;. The letters on keyboard are positioned so that most frequently used letters are placed in central row and are pressed with forefingers.
By way, there are a lot of different variants of layouts. The type of layout is also important in development of technique of typing. The most habitual and accustomed is QWERTY, moreover it is most frequently used layout, but according to results of testing Dvorak proved to be more effective as it increased speed of typing for 20 - 40 percents.
In touch typing not only correct position of hands and type of layout are significant, but position of body also plays an essential role. Your posture should be straight, legs shouldn't be crossed, palms and fingers should be loose as though they rest over keyboard. Imagine that you are having an apple in your hand and it is going to slip. You should hit keys lightly and abruptly. The quieter sound from keyboard is, better it is. Touch keys with finger cushions and after hit withdraw finger from key.
Hence, I recommend you not to procrastinate and to set to touch typing right now. Remember "Knowing how to study is like knowing how to fish. It is a set of learning skills that lasts a lifetime and brings many rewards. Just as there are ways to know that you are a competent fisherman, there are ways to develop skills competency." And one of them is touch typing.

How To Find The Best Foreign Language Courses?Written by Linda Correli

The credibility of courses. Note that if courses were established not so long time ago, it is more evidently that they didn't establish solid reputation and wouldn't be able to provide you with all necessary facilities, professional teachers and guarantee you respectable certificate. The recognition of courses by Council of country language of which you are studying. This factor is highly important when choosing language courses. If courses are recognized by Council it acknowledges that level of language teaching offered in these courses is adequate. Keep in mind that courses attached to Council are always more respectable. First, tutors there are native speakers. Second, certificate of The Council is generally accepted. The curriculum of course. Clarify at once whether course you are going to take is a set of modules designed for students taking short-term courses or it is a full structured course. Keep in mind that way language is taught is a very important point, because methodic of teaching foreign language as a second language differs much from methodic of teaching this language as a native one. The variety of programs courses can offer (business, conversational language, language for some specific fields, for Law, for medicine, intensive course). The diversity of languages and programs courses can propose adds up to their credibility and reliability. The longevity of holidays. For sure there must be a break in studying, but it mustn't be too long for you not to forget everything you've learned. You must be in language speaking environment as much as possible. Hence, language must be on credit side, you should use language actively. The courses fee. Check all money details very carefully. Check whether registration fee is included in general price for course. Get to know what a variation of fee for different programs is. Make sure if there any discounts for program you are going to attend. The organization of any extracurricular activities: social events, excursions, discussion halls. Get to know if there is any extra charge for these.
Hope that these selection criteria of foreign language courses will come in handy to you and will help you choose courses where you master language perfectly well. Test them in practice and make certain that they are sure fire to work.
