Words are all around us and are increasing in number each year, that is why we need to know how to write them down.
Spelling is very important since we do writing throughout our lifetimes. Spelling also aids in reading, so that writing and reading have a common factor- proficiency with language.
Bad spelling gives others a bad impression about you. No matter what you say, if the spelling is poor, the reader will notice this before anything else. Punctuation errors often go unnoticed, but everyone notices spelling errors.
If you struggle with spelling, take the challenge below and improve your spelling skills. Choose the level of difficulty and test yourself. You can do it as many times as you wish.

Before you start watching the funny video, first check out the instructional video below and learn about an effective method to improve your listening skills in English so that you can watch and easily understand the movies without subtitles.
Good to remember! The technique of changing playback speed would work well with short-length videos and movies.
If you want to watch a full length movie, the best advice is as follows: The more you watch, the better you understand the English speakers, both native and non-native ones.
And now it is time to get some laugh in front of your screens. The subtitles are accompanying the conversations in the video below.
Short Tip: I would encourage you to just listen to the characters without focusing too much on the subtitles, otherwise you might overlook the main message conveyed by the speakers.
Now, after you have got some tips on improving your listening skills and watched the short video answer the following:
1) Do you think the method mentioned in the instructional video can help you enhance your listening skills?
2) What other techniques do you think might help you understand English in movies? Which do you use?
3) Can you suggest a few videos/movies/TV series you like watching? What do you pay attention to while listening in order to better understand: tone/rhythm/ non-verbal communication/ accent etc.?
