Introduction to Exercises

Introducing words and three more vowels
Follow the colours and finger numbers in the next chart to practise the specific movement pattern of your fingers as they complete the following drills.  Visualise where the letter keys are and use the fingers shown in the image below.

Using only the four Left Hand letter keys, D and F on the Home Key row with E and R on the row above we can feel out the word ‘fred’ which is one of 16 words that can be formed from only these four letters.

Place your fingers over the Home Keys.  Don't actually type anything at this point.  But with the Left Hand first finger lightly tap f r f r f r f r. Now with the second finger lightly tap d e d e d e d e.

On the Home Keys tap these fingers on d f d f d f d f then on the row above tap e r e r e r e r.
Within these four letters the Left hand can type the patterns de ed re er.

Feel them under your fingers now by lightly touching the keys.

These patterns are used in words like demand, remind, asked, walker.

just scroll to the
