Englishtype Senior

Englishtype Senior is a version of the best selling children's typing tutor, Englishtype Junior, designed for older students. Englishtype Senior was developed by an experienced Educational Psychologist and is designed to boost literacy at the same time as teaching typing.

Unlike other typing tutors, Englishtype Senior is designed to maximise additional literacy benefits at the same time as teaching typing. We recommend Senior for over 12 years old up to adults, or sometimes Junior can be good for older children if they have Special Needs (see Special Needs section).

  • supports general literacy learning: improves reading, spelling, grammar and punctuation

  • uses age appropriate, relevant & useful vocabulary including the 300 most common words in adult English language

  • uses real words from Lesson 1, and does not use nonsense words or jibberish that can be very confusing, and even damaging, to literacy skills

  • uses quotations and proverbs to add interest

Englishtype Senior is excellent for mixed ability groups; challenging the brightest students whilst providing extra help for those with Special Needs. The inclusive design means all students can use the same program and work at the same time, but at their own pace (see Special Needs section for more details). It has a Special Needs friendly design, including:

Englishtype Senior Lesson Screen Background Colour Options


  • a multi-sensory approach

  • strong colour coding

  • visually simple & uncluttered presentation style

  • both spoken & written instructions

  • choice of background screen colours

  • highly structured content

Englishtype uses a unique colour coding system to build learning quickly and efficiently. Learning key & finger relationships as rapidly as possible is the main aim of any typing tutor. Supporting this link is an integral part of Englishtype's unique design.

There are three learning Options:

  • Basic - easy and essential words

  • Everyday - general adult vocabulary

  • Advanced - more mature language

For schools & colleges, Englishtype Senior has a detailed Teacher Administration package including a Class Management function, certificates, printing & exporting results (see Teachers section).

Englishtype Senior teaches with a combination of short, motivating self-taught lessons and arcade-style games to encourage painless practice. There are 12 lessons in total, and 3 games which are introduced at the end of different lessons. Playing the games is essential - this is where you test what you have learned.
