7 Ways To Improve Your Spelling

Whether you are a child or an adult, there are 7 great ways to improve your spelling – and they all come from the same place. To be more specific, they are contained within the one computer software program: Ultimate Spelling.

Designed by top educational software developers eReflect, Ultimate Spelling has “7 learning advantages” that are guaranteed to boost spelling skills quickly, and enjoyably.

And that quite simply is the key to this program’s success, as the creators have fashioned a well-balanced easy to use system that combines effective learning, with fun to use features with simple, easy-on-the-eye graphics. It is little wonder this piece of software is proving so popular with both children, and adults alike.

So what are the 7 ways to improve your spelling that Ultimate Spelling provides?

The number one “learning advantage” is the three-step drill process that allows students to get instant feedback answers to their learning attempts when practicing their spelling. Not only that, but Ultimate Spelling will ensure the student types the correct word at least once before continuing.

Another of the methods (which is mainly aimed at schoolchildren) is the grade-boosting spelling lists for Grades 1-10 that are contained within the program. There are 10 lists per Grade, which ensures that every word that needs to be learned in each particular age group is available for study, and practice. The lists are divided into progressive levels so that the student can learn at their own pace.

The third advantage is linked to the second in that students can create their own spelling lists in tandem with the words that are currently being learned in their own class. This keeps the student up to date, and enables them to practice speedily, and steadily, especially if they need to concentrate on problem words. This function is ideal for preparing for class tests, spelling bees, and other competitions.

Advantage number four is the fact that when using Ultimate Spelling it is as if the student has their very own personal tutor guiding them, as the program won’t allow any time to be wasted practicing words that are already known. This allows greater focus to be devoted to new words, and is why the same drills, and tests are not repeated once they have been learned.

Another key facility in the program is the in-built “human” voice that can pronounce words for the student to help with understanding the sounds of words. There are over 20,000 words in the program’s database, and it also boasts an impressive 142,647 word dictionary/thesaurus, which is especially good for the older user. A further useful tool is the access to Word Discover, which enables students to surf the Internet if they want to know ore about a particular word.

The sixth learning advantage is the excellent tracking system that monitors development, and progress on a handy graph that maps out all the results of the test, and drills the student has completed from the very start. All words successfully spelled are displayed enabling the student to bask in the glory of their progress.

So, what are the 7 ways to improve your spelling? The answer comes in just two words – Ultimate Spelling.
