How well can you spell?
You probably think you get by pretty well. But studies have shown that 1 in 4 people actually have quite a difficult time with the written English language. Experts attribute this to a lack of proper teaching and too much time spent on social media.
And unless you’ve not been paying attention, you know that social media is overflowing with spelling and grammar errors galore. Of course, there is more to a person than whether or not they have a firm grasp on the English language, but you can’t deny it, standards have gone down in recent years.
However, there are still a good amount of people who care about proper grammar and spelling. Some even go so far as to double-check their spelling before posting a simple tweet about their day. And then there are those that seem to have a natural ability to spell without the need to check for accuracy. But are they really as good at spelling as they claim to be?
