As to whether it is worthwhile giving attention tospelling in English learning, there is a long-running controversial debate.It’s quite natural that people from different backgrounds may have divergentattitudes towards it.
Those who have already benefited from practicing itsing high praise of it. For one thing, they are of the opinion that spelling isa basic skill and correct spelling can make a great contribution to our Englishlearning, especially to remember words. For another, they advocate that correctspelling is very necessary in communication. What’s more, it is a mark or signto indicate the level of our English and education.
However, there are a large number of people who hold adifferent view concerning this case. They argue that most of us do not havemuch chance to speak English or communicate with the foreigners in the future.Thus they considered that training spelling just a heave and a needless burden.
For my part, I stand on side of the former opinionthat spelling is an important and necessary in English learning. Therefore, dueattention should be given to spelling.
