ESL game Spelling Knockout is a spelling competition that is a great way to practice spelling in class with your students. Spelling is often overlooked by ESL teachers but it plays an important role in developing reading skills for students. Not only this, but it also aids in helping cement the connection shared between sounds and letters.
Spelling can be particularly difficult for students whose first language may be more phonetical than English is. Because of this, spelling activities can play a vital role in language proficiency.
