Once more unto the breach, dear friends, once more; or close the wall up with our English dead: in peace, there's nothing so becomes a man, as modest stillness, and humility: but when the blast of war blows in our ears, then imitate the action of the tiger: stiffen the sinews, summon up the blood, disguise fair Nature with hard-favour'd rage: then lend the eye a terrible aspect: let it pry through the portage of the head, like the brass cannon: let the brow o'erwhelm it, as fearfully, as doth a galled rock o'erhang and jutty his confounded base. Now set the teeth, and stretch the nostril wide, hold hard the breath, and bend up every spirit to his full height. On, on you noblest English.

The sample text is taken from King Henry V by William Shakespeare.

Typing is learned by practice.

Expert typists are not born with an innate affinity for keyboards. They have not taken a magic typing pill. Nor do they rely on enchanted keyboards for their skill. They practice.

The lessons of the typeonline course should have given you a grounding in touch typing. To improve, there is no substitute for practice.

Before you begin typing make sure you are sitting up straight, your feet flat on the floor. Keep your elbows close to your body, your wrists straight and your forearms level, and remember to take regular breaks.
