    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.

    Re: spelling

    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.
