Is 20 WPM a good typing speed?

This depends on age. For example, this is a good typing speed for elementary and middle school children. Many kids learn to type with 20 words per minute, although someone may be faster. As children practice typing more, their speed should increase.

For high school students, a speed of 20 WPM is low. Take a typing course and your typing speed will increase.

20 words per minute it's not good for adults because it is significantly below the average typing speed of 41 words per minute and does not provide enough time for efficient and accurate typing. Typing at such a slow rate will often result in mistakes and decreased productivity. 

The best way to get better at typing is to practice. You can take online typing tests and classes that can help boost your speed. Work on increasing your words per minute (WPM). You can do this by first mastering the basics and then setting short-term goals to speed up.
