can u spell gud?

I found this online spelling test while doing some research. It's from a site created by a former copy editor - she's come up with a list of 50 commonly misspelled words based on her eleven years' experience.

Take the test here.

Don't be embarrassed if you don't do well. These are tricky words. I'd hate to admit my first score. Needless to say, I've since learned by heart the words I originally spelled incorrectly.

How can you reduce spelling mistakes in your own writing? Use a dictionary to look up every word you're not sure of. The second time I took the above test, I used a dictionary. When we pour passion and intention into our learning, it sticks in the brain longer.
