Many adults struggle with spelling, and it’s not entirely their fault. Spelling and using proper grammar comes with years and years of practice, and, like with everything else, if you don't use it, you lose it.

The internet, texting, and spellcheck have enabled us to get a little lazy with our grammar skills. While helpful and accessible, these things have also stopped us from practicing proper vocabulary and we sometimes struggle to remember words that are notoriously difficult. If you're a good speller or a person who uses proper grammar in today's technical age, pat yourself on the back—those skills are getting harder and harder to master!

Do you know the rules of spelling? Can you tackle commonly misspelled words with ease? Were you always a spelling bee champ? Are you a stickler for proper grammar? Do you correct your friends from time to time? If you said "yes" to any of these questions, then this is the place for you!
