Words Frequently Misspelled / Part 1
English spelling gives almost every English learner a hard time. Why is it pronounced ['medsin], yet spelled 'medicine'? Why should we write 'their' and 'there' but pronounce them both the same way? Why should one letter make such a big difference, as in 'thorough' and 'through'?Well, all English learners must be prepared for that. Spelling isn't easy and most of the times foreign English learners should learn the spelling of certain words by heart.
