This article Spelling mistakes 'cost millions' in lost online sales by Sean Coughlan, the BBC News education correspondent, illustrates why companies and organisations should seriously think about including a spelling course for their employees as part of their personal and professional development.

Those seeking work should also consider this. A recent survey by the CBI found that 42% of employers are not satisfied with the basic reading and writing skills of school leavers; apparently, almost half have actually had to invest in some kind of remedial training to improve their skills.

"Thank goodness for Spellzone during this remote learning phase. The site is easy for students to navigate independently and they're really enjoying the activities and spelling games. You get an awful lot for your money with Spellzone. Really reassuring is the very prompt response with helpdesk queries. I've very rarely needed the helpdesk, but when I have, the issue has been addressed and sorted within a very short time."
