Information for adult learners

No need to feel shy or embarrassed about your spelling. Now there's an easy-to-use and fun way to improve!

It is well known that English spelling is very hard and many adults struggle with this subject. There are many computer programs to help children with spelling but most of them are not suitable for adults. You may not have received the help you needed at school and Spellzone can fill those gaps.

Spellzone doesn't just test you to see which words you already know - it actually teaches you - not just by giving you lists of words, but by teaching you how to learn them.

Where a spelling rule exists, Spellzone teaches it. Where there are no rules to help, Spellzone gives you tips on how to remember tricky words - especially those words a computer spell-checker can't spot: the words that sound the same but have different spellings for different meanings, for example:

Homophones and English spelling rules dew / due    brake / break     stationery / stationary

led - shown the way
lead - a heavy soft metal

The tour guide led us up the hill.
The roof is made of lead.

lead has the letter a - so does metal
