The love of field and coppice, Of green and shaded lanes, Of ordered woods and gardens, Is running in your veins; Strong love of grey-blue distance, Brown streams, and soft, dim skies, I know, but cannot share it; My love is otherwise. I love a sunburnt country, A land of sweeping plains, Of ragged mountain ranges, Of droughts and flooding rains; I love her far horizons, I love her jewel sea, Her beauty and her terror The wide brown land for me!

The sample text is taken from My Country and other Poems by Dorothea MacKellar.

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.
