Spelling:  -le
Look at the pretty rose petals!

Spelling: -le

Sample, dimple and ankle are spelled with 'le' at the end. In this 11-plus spelling quiz, you are going to get some practice in spelling words that end in el, al and le.

There are no rules when it comes to ending in el, al or le which makes learning them even harder. Look at the following three words:

  • pedal
  • marvel
  • crumble

All these three words have the same-sounding ending. The only way to know the difference is to memorise them. Spelling is pretty tricky in English, so make sure that you spend time on your spelling and don't confuse the spelling of words ending in el, al and le.
