If there’s one thing that we can all agree on when it comes to English is that its spelling rules are HARD — even native speakers know that and spelling is taken very seriously both in and out of school.
But did you know that spelling words correctly can even get you money in the States? All you have to do is take part in (and win) a spelling bee — the most famous is the Scripps National Spelling Bee.
In this competition kids are asked to spell incredibly long and complicated words like Bewusstseinslage, haecceitas, koinonia.
Now, although we may not be ready to compete with these brilliant kids, we can still have fun trying to spell these often misspelled English words.
Let me know how it went in the comments! Good luck!
