This course is for you

Embarrassed by your spelling? Can't seem to remember spellings? Need to improve your job prospects but your spelling's holding you back? You're not alone — this Spelling Rules Course is here to help you.
  
                                                                                                                                                                                                                          
This unique course is for adults, especially British and American English users who can read and write but need to improve spelling.
                                                                                                                                                                                                                        
                                                                                                                                                                                                                        
Learning spelling rules can significantly boost your spelling and writing confidence because you'll understand why spelling is the way it is with its strange letter patterns, regularities and irregularities, which means you won't be so frustrated with spelling. 
                                                                                                                                                                                                                          
Learning spelling rules will also improve your reading and how to say the word too (this will become clear when you do the first section and discover the magic 'e' silent 'e', drop the 'e' and 1:1:1 doubling up rules).
This course will give you the confidence to write that perfect word that expresses how you feel on an application form, on social media, in letters and emails, when writing reports, and notes to your kid's teacher.                                                                                                                                                                                                                           
Don't let your poor spelling get in the way of being able to have the life, work, education you want.

She’s the owner of www.howtospell.co.uk, a spelling website for adults.                                                                                                                                                                                                                         
The Course
The course is divided into relevant sections, and each section builds on the last one, which is why it's important to go through this course step by step. Revision sections are included to consolidate and revise your learning.
                                                                                                                                                                                                                       
All the lessons have a video and PDF information worksheet, and if relevant, a spelling test video and exercise.

Learning the Rules 
Enjoy discovering the rules and patterns, and don’t be discouraged if you forget them: that’s natural — spelling and spelling rules can’t be learned overnight, so keep coming back to this app again and again.
                                                                                                                                                                                                                        
You must work at and study spelling — notice it, think about it, question it, use it. Then your spelling will improve and you'll be able to confidently write that social media comment, write reports, job applications, and even be able to help your kids, or grandkids and won't feel ashamed you don't understand spelling.
