What an amazing site. I work with pupils with ASN and you have given me a brilliant solution to help them. I am sitting at home planning for parents evening tomorrow and have found a solution for so many pupils. My spelling isn't great. I am thinking of registering for the lessons. Thank you Claire :-)

Hi there - have only just discovered your website and am finding it very useful indeed. I teach EFL and am also specialising in pronunciation for non-native English speakers. Thanks for all the free stuff ;-) Kind regards, Carrie

I have to do all of the quizzes on here for my TAFE course.
Is there anyway I can print them off once they are completed as I have to print them off to show I have done them all to pass? Thanks. Ash
(Just go to File then Print... And you should be able to print them.)

Hi Joanne,
I would like to thank you for taking the time to make it easy for others to learn.
Many thanks.

Thank you so much for your help over the past year, I couldn't have got this far without your help. Can you believe that I am helping my 8 year old grandson with his spelling, it's a fantastic feeling. I still go on your site which I do quite often just to remind myself of all the different spelling rules - still away to go I think but I will get there. I am so pleased I came across your site it changed my life and gave me so much confidence which I thank you for.
So keep up the good work that you do and you deserve a medal.
Kind regards
A.W.

I am your fan. When I was a hotshot kid I would PRO NOUNCE the word aloud or to myself (doesn't matter) the way it is spelled.i.e. "separately" always confounded me. So I taugt myself to say SEH PAR (rhymes with bar)- ATELY
The key phonetic syllable was PAR. Of course I never spoke it that way. Later I forgot this phonemic device. With my phonetic dyslexic daughter, we would invent stories using the spelling words we traveled to jungles there were heroes, and her spelling words along with color crayons and drawing paper. She ended up getting A's in spelling. The latter method I shall never forget. It belongs in a Separate place in my heart, Juan

Joanne, your spelling course has been amazing. I've found it extremely interesting. Thank-you so much, Kate :)

Dear Joanne
Really your lessons help me to improve my English.
Thank you very much for your emails and your help
Sincerely
