SPELLING BEE 2015

Watch the upcoming 2015 Philinter Spelling Bee Challenge. Watch as Philinter focuses on the linguistic aspects of expanding vocabulary range and control. Phonology will also be an important part as students learn to pronounce consonants and vowels as they spell the words. Students learn also many different areas in language as they learn the synonyms, definition and usage of words in proper context.
