Englishtype Junior Single User Home (MAC Version)
Englishtype Junior is suitable for ages 6-12 years.
Englishtype was developed by an Educational Psychologist with 25 years' experience and is designed to maximise additional literacy benefits at the same time as teaching touch typing. The multisensory design, unique letter and finger colour coding accelerates learning to type while the strong literacy content also improves spelling.
Designed for the UK curriculum, Englishtype is great for schools and the self-directed learning means it works well both in the classroom and at home. It is a great combination of lessons and games with optional extra spelling lessons; the collection of gems, trophies and certificates creates a fun, computer game style which will appeal to all students.
Englishtype Junior is excellent in the classroom and for mixed ability groups; challenging the brightest children whilst providing extra help for Special Educational Needs children. The inclusive design means all children can use the same program and work at the same time, but at their own pace.
