The English language has thousands of words including plenty of hard words to spell that we tend to overlook. Some of these words may seem easy at first, but sometimes you might end up misspelling them.

Separate is one of the most commonly misspelled words in the English language. This is because most people write it as 'Separate' misplacing the 'A' following the 'P' with an 'E'. The second most commonly misspelled word is Definitely. This is because people normally mix up the second 'I' with an 'A' and sometimes completely forgetting to add the final 'E'.
Some words may seem easy while pronouncing them, but when you actually get down to writing them, they tend to be hard to spell. Due to the clashing nature of American English and British English, misunderstandings relating to the spellings of words are usually experienced. Therefore, giving the right guidance to those who have a problem with spellings is very important.
