Writing is an important means of communication. For an effective written communication, correct use of spelling play a vital role to have an impact on the reader. Incorrect spelling can irate the reader, setting a question mark on the writer’s intelligence.


There may be a number of reasons which can cause an individual to make spelling mistakes while writing. They may be:

·         Improper breaks and emphasis while speaking the words

·         Lack of understanding the rules of the language etc.


So, how to improve spelling mistakes?


1.      Speak (Read) while you write

When you read out your thoughts which you wish to pen on paper, spellings automatically gets improved. In fact the pronunciation of words also gets enhanced with this regular practice.


2.      Analyze the causes and check them right away

The reasons mentioned above can be the cause of making spelling mistakes. You should be able to identify them and take corrective steps to ensure mistakes aren’t repeated.


3.      Re-read or Re-write

If you do not understand the rule or the concept, re-read it. If you think reading is not a problem and only writing is, then, re-write the areas, sentences or words where you tend to make mistakes.
