"Spelling is very easy to practise yourself whereas signing is not. So I would sit on the subway riding around New York and I would spell whatever I would see. When I watched a movie I would spell words as they came up." - Richard Masur.

How do you practise your spelling? Are you assigned lists to learn? Do you jot down words which you have misspelled in your work, or words that you misspell regularly, and make a point of learning them? Do you actively search for new words to learn? Invent games to help you pass time which might otherwise be boring?

There are many ways to practise spelling, of course, and you probably wouldn't be taking this quiz if you didn't care at least a little about how you spell. It helps to take a variety of approaches to really strengthen your memory. You can spell aloud, in writing, by typing, forwards, backwards, competitively and for fun. Try something new!
