I was always very good at spelling in English. Nowadays, I am experiencing unexpected problems. I think it's to do with French and English being so alike......
Wanting to spell "tranquil," I had to look it up in the dictionary as I'd written tranquille and it looked absolutely fine to me. Until the spellcheck tells me I have got it wrong!
Does anyone have similar problems?
I'm not too happy about all of this as I cannot imagine having now to learn to spell in English all over again! I mean I learnt all that years ago in Primary School......!!!
