Test Your Spelling Mettle Against The Washington Post

Illustration for article titled Test Your Spelling Mettle Against emThe Washington Post/em

Tied to this year's spelling bee, the Washington Post has provided you with series of sentences with misspellings of common words. Plus, it lets you compare your results to everyone else's. Which can be a good thing or a bad one.


There's a level for every letter except J, Q, X, Y, and Z. After each level, the misspelled words are revealed, as are the number of people who guessed that a word was misspelled. We'd show you what that looks like, but we wouldn't want to spoil a sentence for you. Go ahead and test your skill over at the Washington Post.
