  • Hi, everyone, and welcome to part nine of this beginner English Phrases for Conversation series.

  • Today's phrase is: "How do you spell that?"

  • This phrase can be used to ask someone how to write a certain word.

  • This question is asking about the letters that you need to write the word.

  • It's not asking about the meaning or the pronunciation.

  • Let's pretend you hear the word "connected" and you don't know how to spell the word.

  • You can say, "How do you spell that?"

  • How do you spell that?

  • Some different ways to say "How do you spell that" are:

  • Could you spell that for me, please?

  • Would you mind spelling that for me?

  • Spell that for me, please.

  • So if someone asks you, "How do you spell that'", how do you answer this question correctly?

  • You can say, "It's spelled...", and then you give the spelling or you can just say the letters that you need to spell that word.

  • For example, if someone says to you, "How do you spell 'connected'?"

  • You can just say ," C, O, double N, E, C, T, E, D."

  • When we have two of the same letters together, it's better to say "double".

  • Double means two.

  • For example, double O.

  • Double T.

  • Double C.

  • Now let's talk about a common mistake with this phrase.

  • Many students like to say, "How do you spelling that", but this is incorrect.

  • After "how do you", we normally need a verb 1.

  • For example, "How do you eat that?"

  • How do you make that?

  • How do you write that?

  • So to correct this, you need to say, "How do you spell that?"

  • Not "spelling".
