Spelling: Unstressed Vowels 2

When spelling some words, you'll come across unstressed vowels when those words are spoken. To get more of an understanding try this second quiz on unstressed vowels.

There are many words in the English language where vowels are unstressed. How many can you think of? These words are tricky to spell purely because they sound so different. Do keep practising your spelling skills - bad spelling can be seen as a sign of laziness and could cost you a job you really want to get when you leave school.

If you did well in the first 11-plus Spelling Unstressed Vowels quiz, then here's your chance to become a super British English 'spelling bee'. If you didn't do too well, here's your chance to improve your overall score.

Take your time, think carefully and good luck!
