I come from China, as you know, English is not the native language of me, so I'm not skilled in typing English words and I'm very curious that how many words can you type in one minutes? And to a very skilled typer, what is the record of the Englis words typing? Any opinion, post here and just let me know.

I don't know about the record, but I used to know a woman that could type 120 words per minute, with a 99.7% accuracy rate. It was amazing just to watch her. I myself type between 70-80 words per minute, with a 98% accuracy rate. It takes lots of practice, but the more you do it the faster you will become.

I had never paid more attention to it, so let me take a test. now, it is beginning. If i just type some words according to the articles, then i can type 80 words in a minute, if i post discussions and responses, then i can type only 50 words, because i have to think of it while typing the words. is it too slow? frankly, i dont' know the common standard of type speed. besides, i'm from China, too. glad to meet you here.
