I guess I can since I'm doing it when writing this post but I never really thought about it. Been using computer many hours per day since I was 11-12 years old at least so it comes naturally. Went to high school specialized on programming and spent 6 hours per weekday in front of a keyboard for three years there too, after which I went home and spent another 6 hours or so per day at my own computer. Maybe not healthy but hey, it's what I do.
Not sure if I use the "proper" method, probably not since I don't care what the proper method is. I just do what feels natural to me.
The test said:
Your speed was: 66wpm.
Congratulations! You made no mistakes, practice does make perfect.
And it's a foreign language for me as well, some of the spelling was a bit annoying. Then again, I don't live in my country anymore so I'm pretty used to English.
