Picture this:

A young student hears the word "awry" which happens to be unfamiliar and wonders if it means what he or she thinks it means.

So, wanting to settle the matter once and for all, the student tries to look up "awry" in a dictionary and after a long search, is unable to do so.

Discouragement is likely to follow with perhaps these thoughts or thoughts similar to them: "Why did I waste my time?" or "Why am I'm so stupid?" or "Will I ever be competent in English?" What is needed is a Spelling Buddy.


Below you'll find a solution to this age-old situation which the English language–without malice–constantly springs upon its learners and users.




PROBLEM: How can you look it up if you can't spell it?

SOLUTION: Using this Spelling Buddy, you can look up a word's sound.

If you can say the word, you'll be able to look it up on the first try.

Younger gifted students
