Spelling helps for the 21st century Nigerian
Fair or not, your spelling skills are used throughout your life to evaluate you as a person. Several months ago the results of a study of Fortune 500 human resource employees were published, saying that of the people they had interviewed, some 85% threw away a resume or cover letter that had as little as one or two spelling errors.
The logic was, if you didn’t care enough about your application to make sure everything was spelt correctly, then you couldn’t be trusted to care enough about your job – where a tiny spelling error might undo an important business deal or cost the company money
But what if you’re a reasonably intelligent person with a fairly good sense of writing style who, for one reason or another, just doesn’t spell very well? How do you improve your spelling, without going back to elementary school and sitting through four or five grades in English class again? There are books and lists of commonly misspelt words available, but they’re too overwhelming to be very useful. Looking things up in the dictionary isn’t all that helpful if you don’t know already that you don’t know how to spell something — or if you can’t spell it well enough to find it!
