IMG_3030Why wrong:  In French, the word adresse is spelled with only one letter d and a final e.  In English, address takes a double letter d and no final letter e.  To avoid this mistake…

Correct it: Write “address.” Spell checkers are very useful for writing when they are used. Make it a habit to use them before sending email or before presenting wiChecklistth slides.

With handwritten notes, however, be careful with words that are similar between English and French, since such mistakes can make people question your credibility:  contact Roy for personalized classes adapted to your personality and interests!
