    it is calling orthography
    You must learn how to write before You do this

    To write english succesfully you have good grammar and vocabulary. The way you use the structures also play an important role. First you had better not long for a perfect paragraph or perfect essay. You try to write whatever you like such as your friends, your family, your dairly, your school..etc..write as much as possible.It will help you to have good habbit in writing.Then day by day your writing will be better and you can write as you expect.hi`hi`

    These a couple of good places to start answering what I belive is your question. Unfortunately, there really is no good short answer. English language orthography is difficult for anyone relying purely upon phonetics. Fortunately, once you've learned to identify a handful of the most common difficult ones, they remain pretty consistent from that point foreward.

    Since the most famous comment regarding this was made by George Bernard Shaw, it turns out that a good place to start your research on this is to use
    Google to combine the word fish and the spelling ghoti in the same search.
    You'll get many pages of information on how best to deal with this.
