My spelling is bad. Will I loose marks if I do bad spelling? Thank you.



Hi Fenella! A lot of my students ask this...Next time you write a task 2 answer do it on a computer with the spell check turned off, when you've finished turn it back on and look at your errors. Copy them onto a separate piece of paper, ask yourself, are there any words that you often get wrong? are there any patterns? Next practise spelling them correctly - use the say, write, cover and check method [say the word several times, cover it with a piece of paper, write it next to the original and check!] and check out this useful document

Hi Fenella. I think Jane's technique is really useful. You could also use this website to create your own lists of words that you want to learn the spelling of. The site then generates different activities for you to help you practise.
