Greek II

Good morning everyone. This week we will take a look at how the vowel sounds are spelled in Greek, more specifically, the sounds pertaining to “a”, “e”, and “i.” Most of the sounds are self-explanatory, but some of them are special in Greek.

Spanish V

Hello everyone! In this final installment of the Spanish videos, we will finish up our vowels and wrap up by revisiting our ten sample Spanish words and applying the rules that we learned. Remember, Spanish is a very phonetic, consistent language so these rules will work almost all the time! Enjoy!

Spanish I

Good afternoon everyone! Hope everyone had a wonderful Christmas! Now we will start our study of another Romance language, Spanish. Spanish is closely related to French, which we have already covered, and also comes from Latin as well, which we have looked at also. In this first video, we will take a look at its background, some sample words to get you acquainted with the style of the language, and some common stems that pop up quite frequently. Enjoy!

Also, please don’t forget to donate to water.org to help make a difference in people’s lives! The donation link can be found at https://spellingmantra.com/donation/. All and any donations are welcome; thank you to those who have helped out already.

Finally, I have put the link to Scott Remer’s Words of Wisdom (2nd Edition) book in the Introduction post. Scott has been an invaluable mentor and I would like to thank him for all he has done.

Wishing everyone a Happy New Year 2014!
