The Complete Guide to English Spelling Rules is the only book you will ever need to learn or teach how to spell English words. No lists to memorize, no endless "exception rules" — just straight forward, concise and easy-to-comprehend rules. The guide is perfect for young students and foreign students learning English. Professor John J. Fulford spent over thirty years refining this guide through his extensive teaching experiences in K-12, college, and English as a Second Language (ESL). The knowledge and experience gained from working with such a diverse group of students in America and overseas, honed the clarity of the rules. This guide is the first time anyone has broken down English spelling into simple, step-by-step lessons.
