    Is there a way to disable Word Flow? I find that when I type sometimes, my finger slides along the screen and starts to type for me and I make more mistakes that usual when typing.

    I really just want the normal keyboard.

    No, you can't turn it off, you'll just need to be more careful when typing. You should really give Word Flow a try though, it's much faster than typing out each word letter by letter.

    No... don't use the English keyboard.

    I'm not sure why others are saying you can't disable it, but you can, easily. Go to Settings > Keyboard, tap the language you want to modify, then deselect "Type as I swipe through letters" (the last item). That's it.

    Yes you can.
    First though, Wordflow is the normal keyboard. Shape writing is the swype KB.
    go to settings and disable type as I swipe through letters
