What We Like

  • Partly funded by Goodwill.

  • Animated videos are simple and helpful.

  • Site is clean and easy to use.

What We Don't Like

  • Can't fast forward or rewind in videos.

  • Not designed for young children.

GCFLearnFree has free typing lessons that are geared towards adults with no or little typing skills.

For each lesson, you have the option of learning the keys or jumping right into practicing them.

It's a great program to start out on, but since they don't give you an update on how fast or accurate you're typing, We suggest moving onto another program after you get the basic skills down.
