apparently i can type at 97 wpm:

You reached 412 points, so you achieved position 10692 of 1144262 on the ranking list

You type 523 characters per minute
You have 97 correct words and
you have 0 wrong words

a bit surprised cos i thought i could only do around 60. i guess all this EF training paid off

Re: EF Challenge: How fast can you type? [Go on!]

LOL!!!! Secretary needed much?

Reminds me of an alternative skit

"You're typing all the wrong letters!"

"I'm typing all the RIGHT letters, but not necessarily in the right order"

that wasn't easy because the words aren't any logical order. I thought it was a chinese translation at first.

Nevertheless I got 88.

Re: EF Challenge: How fast can you type? [Go on!]

47 wpm (no mistakes though!) - used to be a lot quicker than that.

To be honest I think I'm quicker with sentences that make sense. Typing random words is pretty hard!!

Words per minute (WPM) 67
Keystrokes 333
Correct words 64
Wrong words 0
You reached 333 Points so you achieved position 7447 of 60531 on the ranking list (last 24 hours)

The main thing which slowed me down was looking up to read the words - I still have to watch my fingers when I type
