I guess you are/were also used to commit some of those mistakes. Feel free to share this list with your kid or niece. It will be great to fix their spellings from the beginning.

Also, if you are an English teacher, you can an exam/quiz from the list for your students.

Don't forget to share it with your friends so they can benefit from it as well.

  1. Spelling is definitely a hurdle for me and it's my first language lol growing up I always got mixed up with words, especially "special" and "because", luckily I learned some catchy rhymes to help me remember them. Tongue is also one that often tripped me up.

    1. When it is your first language often times we overlook the writing part of it. As we are good in speaking so we don't bother working on the spelling/writing parts. Thanks for coming by :)
