I remember my Pre-JSS1 days at J-Surgeon Tutors, Apata, Ibadan while we awaited our Common Entrance Exam results. Sagacious Engineer (Gbogbo ara kìkì Skill) was our Head Tutor and he used to take us on special Correct Spelling exercises (the one you call "Dictation" Lol). Sage drilled us ehn. He'll ask us to spell very hard words like Authentic, Brouhaha, Psychology, Pneumonia and we never "entered" JSS 1 óò. At first, 2/10 was a regular score till we got familiar with the words and then Sage would change the game and make it harder. I recall a time when Dahunsi Olawale gave me the secret code to spelling the word "Cigarette", he told me that I should just remember the sound "sì-gá-rẹ-té". Ooh such a good time.
Let the Abuja LEA Spelling Bee Competition 2017 begin. You're invited.
