Personal Best Spelling (Adult Version) v1.5 Description:
is a self-paced spelling tutor designed for adult literacy and education teachers, tutors, and language learners. Based on emerging research into the psychology of learning, and verified by government-funded research, mediational learning explains why adult learners trying to improve their spelling forget what they learn from one day to the next, and keep falling back to their old ways.
Personal Best Spelling uses human factor coaching skills which accelerate the unlearning of habitual spelling errors, known as learned errors, clears up spelling confusion, and speeds up the learning of correct spelling.
You are encouraged to pronounce every displayed word and asked to type it several times while the program tracks your problem areas.
It consists of three modules: learning new words, being tested, and correcting problems or habitual errors.
Personal Best Spelling includes two sample word lists, enabling you to create your own as well as download other ones from the Web.
