It is common to make spelling and grammar errors while typing. Many word-processing programs check spelling and grammar for you, but they cost money to download and are sometimes more confusing than they are helpful. Fortunately, there are spelling and grammar checkers online that make it easy to check text for spelling and grammar errors for free without having to download anything.

Skill level:


  1. 1

    Go to an online spelling and grammar checker such as (See Resources).

  2. 2

    Copy the text you want to check by highlighting it and typing "Ctrl-C" or by right-clicking it and selecting "Copy."

  3. 3

    Paste the text into the box provided on the spelling and grammar checker by typing "Ctrl-V" or by right-clicking the text box and selecting "Paste."

  4. 4

    Check the box next to "I'm anglophone" if English is your native language. If you keep this unchecked, the spelling and grammar checker will provide feedback to aid you in learning English.

  5. 5

    Click "Check Text" to have your text checked for spelling and grammar. Spelling errors will appear underlined and in red; grammar errors will appear highlighted in yellow. Hover your cursor over the spelling or grammar errors to see an explanation and correction of the errors. Change your text to the corrected version.
