    Are there any words you always get confused?

    It happens to teachers too – even English teachers. Shhhh.

    For me it’s practise (verb) and practice (noun). I should know the difference, and I do…, but I still always want to double check because I didn’t know the difference for years. So now I lack the confidence that I’ll get it right first time.

    What’s your spelling confusion?

    It’s nice to hear I’m not alone with spelling confusion!

    When I was at school, I could never spell “embarrassing” correctly. I could never remember if I should have one “r”, or two! I had the same problem with the “s”. Should there just be one? Or is it two? My English teacher always told me it was embarrassing that I didn’t know how to spell “embarrassing”.

    I know now, but whenever I see the word, I stil check to make sure there’s a double “s” and a double “r”!
