Ginger Spelling Book

Good news everyone!

Ginger Spelling Book is now up and running. Kudos to everyone on the team who has put in their sweat and tears to see this through! This is another part of our massive effort to improve Ginger’s product and services, with our users always in mind.

Ginger Spelling Book provides you with two comprehensive, non-exhaustive lists of misspelled words and confusing words. This feature would be of great help to learners of English as a second language (ESL). Nonetheless, anyone who uses English would definitely find it helpful as well.

The index of words in the Confusing Words list captures the subtle differences between words that sound alike or have very similar spelling, but have vastly different meanings. Learning these differences would bring your English grammar skills up one whole notch. Similarly, the Misspelled Words list provides a comprehensive library of words that have tricky spelling.

So check out our new Spelling Book and help spread the word to your families and friends!

Yours gingerly,

Paul and The Ginger Team

Jacobsson brings his social gaming and international business development experience to our company as we look to expand our footprint overseas and capitalize on what we see as an underserved market.

We thank you for your continuous support even as we consolidate and re-position ourselves. Expect more from us as we all look forward to exciting times ahead! =)
