    LearnThatWord is the only fully managed solution that builds this automaticity.

    You’ll meet each word repeatedly over time and explore its nuances and “flavors.” Our multimedia resources bring words to life.

Call for Study Tips and Spelling Tricks - Contest

Website “puts a spell on the web” via individualized audio quizzes

eSpindle Learning announces a contest to solicit personal mnemonics, memory aids, jokes and other spelling tips used to remember commonly misspelled words.

             eSpindle Learning is an educational 501(c)3 non-profit parent-initiative that has created a comprehensive online spelling tutor.
“The creation of LearnThatWord has always been a community effort – from its development to editing its 95,000 word database”, says Rosevita Warda, president and founder.
“A project of these dimensions is never ‘finished’! We hope this call for entries will help to enhance the work of our editors and assist learners worldwide.”

             Everyone has experienced how some words seem to resist memorization or are easily confused and misspelled – frequently using little memory aids will be the solution.
Shirley Brainy, eSpindle Learning’s online spelling tutor, will share submissions with our online community of learners and use them to improve the tutoring experience.

Some examples:

Dessert is Super Sweet
Has Your Two Hips Moving
has a scary ending. 

We invite learners of all ages and backgrounds to submit their favorite spelling secrets. The winner will be chosen via a final drawing on October 18th, 2005, so all entries have an equal chance to win.

The winner will win a classroom (or neighborhood) ice cream party, sponsored by Newman’s Organic ABC cookies and Safeway. Prizes further include a lifetime LearnThatWord membership for the winner and annual memberships for four runners up. T-shirts will also be awarded.

Submissions can be emailed to Shirley Brainy, eSpindle’s virtual spelling tutor, at Shirley@LearnThatWord.org or faxed to 415.814.5727.

             Drawing on an extensive database of more than 95,000 words, eSpindle Learning’s patent-pending technology creates custom learning quizzes based on the member’s goals and skill level. Words are presented with an on-demand audio file, simple definition, sample sentence and links to online resources.

             A member’s unique database profile registers which words are already mastered and repeats those that need practice until they are reliably learned, all the while tracking the member’s performance.

             Affordable and comprehensive, LearnThatWord builds spelling and vocabulary skills in a fun, efficient and methodical way.

LearnThatWord's technology is carefully designed based on scientific research and the guidance of eLearning experts. The project has come to life thanks to the support of a large team of English teachers, editors, writers and other volunteers.
www.LearnThatWord.org is a wonderful tool for improving verbal skills and school grades, avoiding commonly misspelled words, learning English as a foreign language, overcoming learning disabilities, preparing for the Spelling Bee and building memory.

           Shirley Brainy, LearnThatWord’s virtual tutor, also provides the most extensive listing of word roots, prefixes and suffixes available on the web, a section with study tips, and fun facts relating to English Spelling.
