Description of Mario Teaches Typing

A great typing tutorial that is best described as Mavis Beacon Teaches Typing for kids, Mario Teaches Typing is a full-featured typing program that has something for everyone, although kids with no typing experience will get the most from the program-- while enjoying cute antics of Nintendo's popular Mario brothers.

After you sign in, you can choose from many activities that suit your level of typing proficiency. If you are a beginner, the game will teach you from the ground up, letter by letter. The interface is one of the best I've seen in this type of program: you will see two cartoony hands at the bottom third the screen, which will flash the finger you should use to press keys when the letter shows up in in the top screen.

The top two-thirds of the screen is taken up by attractive graphics, showing Mario (or Luigi or the Princess, whomever you choose) doing his cutesy Mario-things (e.g. knocking blocks, jumping on turtles, etc.) when you press the correct key. Do it right, and you will see Mario advance to the next level, just like in the Super Nintendo version.

In addition to many difficulty levels you can choose from, one of the program's best features is the Report Card, which not only displays your accuracy in percentage and your WPM (words per minute) count, but also "problem keys," i.e. keys you have most trouble with. And as if that is not enough, many sentences you will be typing are taken from famous plays, novels, or historical documents, with the source always given at the end. This adds extra educational value to the package, and make you want to come back to it even after you have mastered typing.

Overall, Mario Teaches Typing is a very enjoyable typing tutor that no house should be without. Two thumbs up!

I've installed the dosbox, but when I try to install the install.exe file, I get an error message that says my version of windows won't run this program. What should I do?

BTW, to the commenter below: "words/min" usually means how many words you type per minute and is a measure of your typing efficiency. I think these days if you can 30 WPM it's pretty OK, especially for normal emails and stuff.

DickfaceDownloader 2014-12-06 -1 point

Very good textures, but this accomplishment is overshadowed by a very complex moveset. Did not learn full moveset until game was finished.
Overall I grant this game 2/5

@ MT6
"Sh!t i can't run it it says make sure you have downloaded the appropriate version of this file x64 or x86./... :)
But thanks for this amazing share :)"
just a rule of thumb, anything Windows XP and newer wont run dos programs. Microsoft has remove quite a great deal of dos. actually i believe Windows me was the last time i ever saw mario teaches typing on a native system. what you can do is search for DosBox. either here @ my abandonware or google its one of the best dos emulators and yes thank you guys and gals at my abandonware for mario teaches typing loved it as a kid now want to show it to my kids

I want to use this product for when my team has stand by time, let them take a break from the rigor of being on duty. but as a team leader I want to get something back (better typing skills). It has already made a difference on the XP's Users, they have not noted that it has made a difference.

I have had no problem with our XP's. It went just fine, installed just how the instruction say.

The window 7 unit though are stuck at set 3 to 4. at this point d-fender display an error in void file path.

Flippers 2013-10-06 0 point

Those who just don't know how to play this kind of game should first learn how to use DOSbox. Once you got that figured out, playing this game is a walk in the park. Btw, you don't INSTALL the game, you just type in the correct path to the game and BOOM. So yeah, Google up "How to use DOSBox", newbies.

@"hi" This looks like a Windows version.

I originally played this on an early, pre 256 mac performa. Kind of annoying at the time, as it was just typing, and could not really pay attention to the graphics, and practice typing well. It did get me to try typing a bit more, but it was not until an early release of Mavis Beacon a couple years later, that I really learned the full basics of typing. MB was less distracting, and much more helpful.
