Spelling Bee app
The department has launched a new app that helps students of all ages practise and improve their spelling.
The Premier's Spelling Bee 2013 app features almost 3,000 words and corresponding sentences from the spelling competition of the same name, and uses Australian spelling and pronunciation.
The app—designed for Android phones and tablets—features junior and senior categories with a number of levels that increase in difficulty.
In 2012 a record 123,306 students from across NSW took part in the 2013 Premier's Spelling Bee, making it the largest competition of its kind in the country.
