Ultimate Spelling™ is one such spelling improvement solution that helps people master this essential skill. A variety of impartial reviews on Ultimate Spelling™ make it immediately evident that Ultimate Spelling™ can help people master orthography in little time and with minimum effort.

Vocabulary learning site heaps praise on Ultimate Spelling™ for its effectiveness
While TopTenReviews was conferring excellence awards to the spelling improvement software by eReflect, the editors at Vocabulary.co.il (part of the Vkids company) were preparing their own review of the software.
As the editors note in their introduction, text-speak has made many people sloppy language users and this can have its toll on how efficiently people use language, in speech as well as in writing.
To offset bad spelling skills and habits, Vocabulary.co.il suggests trying Ultimate Spelling™. Their review of Ultimate Spelling™ ends with this quote: “Whichever way you look at it, Ultimate Spelling is learning to spell made very simple, and does exactly what it says on the packet.”
The Ultimate Spelling™ reviewers analysed the program’s features and integrated technology, focusing on its progress tracking tool and its all-encompassing approach to learning spelling, one that caters to young spellers as well as adults.
Its comprehensiveness and rigorous no-nonsense approach to spelling mastery are two other features of the Ultimate Spelling™ the review praised. In fact, Vocabulary.co.il made a point to recommend using Ultimate Spelling™ for learning how to spell, in view of its breadth of activities and structured yet customizable learning experience.
What seems to have impressed many reviewers of Ultimate Spelling™, Vocabulary.co.il included, is the sheer size of its word database (over 142,000 words, more than any other software reviewed). What seems to be even more impressive to most reviewers is the program’s in-depth approach to word mastery.
The program doesn’t simply teach the spelling of a word and stop there. It allows the learner to truly master a word by offering more information about the word, not just its spelling. The user is provided a chance to learn the word’s pronunciation and its definition(s), and the system even offers multiple usage examples for each word so that the learner can confidently and correctly use the words they’re learning to spell.
