    Why irritates me is that auto correct keeps 'correcting' my English spelling to American on my iPhone. I get tired of correcting auto correct and just leave it sometimes. It's tiring.

    I will type it out when I get the chance, though, if you like.
    If you don't mind I'd be really interested, just from a teacher perspective. I can't imagine how they could justify that sort of reasoning is all...

    I have this problem, too! My phone does seem to be learning and getting better at it but I've restored every back up of my phone since 2008 so it doesn't have to relearn every time I get a new phone.

    My phone managed to lose all of my frequently typed words! It won't remember my kid's names, how to spell my street name, and the most infuriating of all - it has forgotten *all* of the ducking swear words (which is kinda handy if they get censored automatically ).

    My phone confuses the English and American spelling but unfortunately I forget the correct spelling so I generally go with it.

    Apple won't let my phone remember swear words! So annoying when you want to have a really good rant about something!

    To those who were curious, I have typed out the letter (I left out 3 sentences as they involved a different issue and had identifying information).
    @Awesome Queen of Amazingtown @Apple iPhart6 @FrothyFrog @HeavenBlue (I think that's everyone?)

    Dear Parent/Guardian,
    It has been brought to my attention that Years 1, 2 and Kindergarten are having difficulties in English.
    The teachers of these 3 year groups are concerned that the emphasis that needs to be placed on spelling is not being met.
    I must remind you that as part of your child’s enrolment, you agreed to assist the school with your child’s learning, by doing some work at home.
    These are crucial stages in a child’s learning, as this is when they form the basics of their knowledge. Without these basics, your child will not perform to the best of their ability.
    If you have any concerns about your child’s abilities, or wish to discuss learning strategies, please contact your child’s class teacher.
    I will be arranging a meeting with all class representatives next week, as this is an ongoing issue.
    Warmest regards,
    [Principal]

    Check that you have your language set to English (UK) and not English (US).

    I've changed my phones language to English (Australian). Hopefully that makes a difference. I can't believe I didn't even think about the phones language. Duh!

    If my school sent that letter home... I can't even wrap my head around it. This is their job. Yes, parents have to be involved and to be accountable for some of it, but by crikey! When asked 'what is a school for' the answer should be something along the lines of 'it is an institution designed to educate students, and most importantly in the areas of reading, writing, spelling and mathematics"....
    I'm sorry, but for them to throw that back at parents is a cop out. I'd be mighty peeved. I *am* mighty peeved and my children don't even go there!
