    Synopsis

    How to win a Spell Bee? With practice of course! Acing the spelling bee competition needs preparations. In this article we list fees of three spelling bee preparatory courses that can help your child in preparing for the competition. 

    A spelling bee competition is the ultimate test of a student’s knowledge of language - right from spellings, meanings, phonetics and so on. A student who participates in a spelling bee has to spell a wide range of words with increasing difficulty correctly in order to win the competition. The inception of the National Spelling Bee competition can be traced back to 1925 in the USA where nine leading newspapers came together to conduct this competition.

    Almost 100 years later, this competition has now reached more than twelve million students across the world. It brings together thousands of children, giving them a platform to interact, share ideas and most importantly test their determination and grit at an international level.

    A huge emphasis is placed on language comprehension skills and lexical knowledge. If your child is fond of reading, vocabulary and curious about language, consider signing up for the many spelling bee competitions that are conducted by schools.

    There are many spelling bee competitions listed on the internet where students can register. Out of all spelling bee competitions, the two major competitions for students from India.

    1. MaRRS Spelling Bee: MaRRS International Spelling Bee (MISB) is an international competition for students from Class 1 to 12. It is held globally every year. It brings thousands of students together from all over the world to compete, interact and learn from each other. MISB competition rounds are designed in a way that goes beyond the school curriculum.

    1. India Spelling Bee: India Spelling Bee (ISB) is one of the largest spelling bee competitions in India. They allow the participation of students from classes 1 to 9. ISB is trying its best to reach all schools in India so that students can enjoy the benefits of competition. ISB aims to organise international level spelling bee competitions in future.

    Students from India have always done well at spelling bee events. The spelling bee encourages the interested student to explore the depths of the language. It also inculcates the desire to learn new words, their spellings, pronunciation and their usage in the sentence. This training makes your brain sharper and helps you perform better in academics.

    When you’re competing with scores of international students, it is a tough contest. For such an event, kids will require the right kind of training. Help from teachers, parents and general reading can definitely help, but a professional coach can add more value to the preparation process.

    Keeping this in mind, here is a list of three preparatory courses that can assist students to win the spelling bee competition. Parents and students can consider these options to hone their preparation skills.
