Woah… Did Sam really just write that?
Spelling is not important when you’re in the middle of a conversation or debate.
What is important is communicating your message effectively and clearly.
When you’re asking a question, in the middle of a conversation or having a debate with someone, the last thing they’re thinking is: “can they spell that word?”
In these situations, spelling just doesn’t help. If anything, spelling will just make it harder for you to talk.
But there are times when you need to know how to spell correctly. For example:
- Writing an essay
- Filling out an application form
- Writing a letter of complaint
- Updating your status on Facebook
- Creating slides at a conference
- Writing a love letter to your beloved
- Making a leaflet for your event or company
- Building your website
- Reading and understanding anything
spelling is important when it helps you to communicate your message clearly and effectively.
When you’re speaking… it’s not important. But when you’re writing, your spelling can be very important.
Your spelling can be the difference between a pass and a fail. Your spelling can be the difference between a successful job application and a rejected one. Your spelling can help you to get a visa or to be rejected.
These are times when good spelling is important.
So, I’ve made a quick spelling quiz for you to test your spelling.
Take the quiz here:
How many words can you spell correctly? 4? 7? 10?
After you’ve completed the quiz, share your score with your friends to see if they can do better.
Oh, and don’t worry if the quiz is a bit slow. Apparently, it’s a new piece of software.
Here it is again:

Ps. About communicating clearly and effectively…
When you know how to do it, you won’t find it too difficult.
You might even enjoy the process…
But you’ll find that you never truly stop learning and improving.
Communicating clearly and effectively is something that I’m covering in-depth in my new project, ‘The Difference’.
If using English is important to you, your life or your work, then this program is something that you’ll be interested in.
I’ll be sending more information out this week, but only to the people who are on the waiting list.
