Hello big shots! Congratulations! It must have been very difficult for you to get here! Welcome to the big stage! Now, imagine you are the stars! Look at the seats; they are full of audiences!

Are you familiar with the cool guy holding the microphone? He is the rock star of the first stage. I guess you must have noticed that there are lots of familiar faces. Yes, members of the band for tonight are the characters from stage 1 to stage 11.

The stage is bigger and more splendid than any other stage, and the warm up round is still there. However, it is way more difficult than before. You must have completely took in what you have been taught during the last 11 lessons since you were able to finish all the tasks successfully. Go back to the previous stages where you did not learn the information as well if you cannot finish all the tasks.

Today you are going to learn something you never saw in the last 11 stages – the combination. This time, you will hold one key down and then type another key to make the correct letter or mark. Don’t be scared, Mr. Goat will give you guidance.

The important thing that you have to remember is the “shift” key. It is a very good assistant. If you want to type capital letters, you need to press the button “shift” and hold it with your left little finger when you want to type a letter controlled by your right hand, then type the letter. With the other hand, use your right little pinky to press and hold down the right “shift” key when you want to type a letter controlled by your left hand, then type the letter. “Shift” plus slash equals a question mark. The last thing I need to mention is using the left “shift” key because the slash key is controlled by your right hand.

Hey kids, did you learn all of this? Remember, only practice can do the trick!
