Everyone likes to think they’re good at spelling. The truth is, though, most people have an Achilles heel when it comes to putting their Ps and Qs in the right place — be it a tendency to stick an extra a in ‘apparently’ or double up the z in ‘bizarre’. While the odd misspelling doesn’t really matter on Facebook or in an email to your mum, such errors can look outright unprofessional in certain formal correspondence, and can often mean the difference between success and failure.
