The is a great program and it is now free. I have always been a poor speller, but I have never found a program which would drill you on words like this one does. Great idea and program for any age.

Very cool! I do run the 9.x version though - clearer speech (that's why the one for X is a beta). My 7 yo loves it, and it's a GREAT way for her to practice her school spelling. I love entering the words and then having the example sentances magically appear! Love the existing words, and fun categories! Words missed will resurface in future tests until they're mastered - great feature!

I like the program a lot, but I was wondering if there was any way that you could have it ask you vocabulary and spelling.
