Learning to spell is something we are taught in America at a very young age. Retaining the spelling of these words begins to get difficult as we grow into adults because our vocabulary becomes the size of actual dictionaries! Although spelling may come easy to some, there are always those words that will stump us from time to time. One solution people have found, is that they use special techniques in order to remember the proper spellings. Remember that third-grade teacher who taught you that dessert is spelled with two S's standing for "strawberry shortcake", whereas desert only has one S standing for "sand"? These little hints we've gathered along the way are great for simplistic words that only vary by one letter. It is when the word sounds a certain way yet is spelled another way that gets us thrown off! An example of this is the word "restaurant". Whenever there is a letter that is silent or there is a letter that is pronounced like another letter, things get really tricky! The word "independent" has always been a word that spell check has to correct for people because the last vowel in the word is pronounced like an A. Some of these words can be even more difficult for people to spell if they have a deep-rooted accent, allowing them to say the word in an entirely different way than it is spelled. Either way, this is a spelling quiz and testing your spelling skills is what we are looking for. So get ready to eliminate some consonants and sound out some vowels because your spelling bee just left the hive!
