This 'Sound ul' spelling quiz introduces elementary school children to ‘ul’, which can sound like ‘al’, like in the word ‘beautiful’. Or, it can be ‘ull’ and make an ‘u-ll’ sound, like in the word ‘bull’. This quiz will include both sounds and spellings that have the ‘ul’ letters.

The letters ‘ul’ can make an al/au sound and if you add another ‘l’ – changing it to ‘ull’ it makes the ‘u+ll’ sound. This quiz will test you on words that have 'ul' in them and as you go, practice how to say these words as the pronunciation might vary. Improve your spelling in this quiz!
