  • Increase your English reading habits; this could be from English newspapers (www.thedailystar.net), novels or elsewhere.
  • Set up a target of learning twenty new words every day. Get yourself the new Spellato 2020 or just a dictionary and maintain a pocket journal for learning words.
  • Keep a specific time every day for testing your own spelling skills.
  • Make a list of your commonly misspelled words. When you catch yourself spelling the same word wrong over and over, write it down somewhere. When you get a chance, look it up and put the correct spelling next to it
  • The only way to really learn a word is to use it. When you look up how to spell a word, write it down several times in a row, and do it again a day or two later.
  • Write a blog, a journal, an email or anything that will keep you using words – and pay special attention as you write to the words that come up wrong using your spellchecker.
