    Default spelling

    some of my student often do the same spelling mistake. Example: They know the word child, but when they write they just write in jumble like chlid, tow and so many easy spelling.

    I also consulted their language teachers and they said they too have same problem.

    What would you suggest?

    Looking forward to hear your positive suggestion.

    Frankly, it sounds like lack of care rather than a cross-language problem. More attention in class to the phonemes of new vocabulary and more spelling tests would be my first thoughts.
