Type to Learn 4 - Download instructions




Type to Learn 4 is the typing software program that we use with students in class. 

By downloading it at home, for free, your child has the option to login to the same TTL4 account they use at school and continue their progress.

Here are the links . . .



Plan for it to take a while for the download and installation to complete. 

When the download completes and you open the program, the log in screen asks for:  
  • User Name (This is the same as what your child uses in class.)
  • Password (This is the same as what your child uses in class.)
  • Account Code 119216
Happy Typing!
