I learnt on a manual typewriter back in high-school.  (They insisted
on manuals with the rationale that if you can touch-type on a manual,
you can type on anything.  I really built up strong fingers in that
course, especially little fingers.)  We have a portable Panasonic
electric somewhere, as well as a Selectric (but the font wheels no
longer line up properly).
