It’s true that, with the expansion of the digital instant messaging, we pay less attention to the spelling when we write. It’s common to think that we can manage to decide when to write properly and when ain’t necessary. But that is not 100% true. If we don’t take care of how we spell when writing emails, sms or on WhatsApp, we will probably get used to that way of communication. Consequently, we are going to commit mistakes when writing important texts such as CV’s, job searchs or business emails.
Paradoxically, technology gives us a problem but also many solutions. There are several apps which aim to impove the quality of our spelling.
Let’s take a look:
¿Cómo dice que dijo?
It consists in a web game that tests your spelling. Through a sequence of sentences you can assess your level in terms of spelling.
The game’s objective is to reach 41 points. Each point consists in a sentence with a missing word and two options to complete it. Choose the correct option to earn a point and continue to the next phrase. In general, they are tricky options, but you can learn a lot with the app and challenge your friends on social networks.
