High Frequency Words: A Spelling Aid for Students of English

Image result for spellingDear Parents/Students,

Please find attached a list of high-frequency words or ‘common’ words in English. These are words that are used every day in writing and speaking. All students of English would benefit greatly from knowing how to say and spell this list of words. Although many of the words may seem too simple to warrant extra attention, it is our experience in correcting your child’s written work that these small words often pose greater problems than the more ‘difficult’ words.

This is an optional download for parents and students. This is NOT a homework exercise and will not be graded or corrected by the English team. It is simply offered as a learning aid for your children to use at home, should you wish to use it. We advise that your child works through the list of words in their own time, practising the spelling and reading of these words. Perhaps you can incorporate five words into their study sessions? Or ten words at the weekend? It will benefit their writing, build on their confidence and improve their grades in school tests.
