Spell + Friends


The ONE App for all Spelling Bee Contest Preparations!

Spell + Friends provides the entire Consolidated Word List (CWL) at your fingertips!

Spell + Friends is the one app for school bees, regional bees, and for anyone aspiring to the highest ranks of the National Spelling Bee.

It contains over 2,000 words in 3 categories with clear and crisp pronunciations, definitions and etymology.

If you are skeptical about studying with anything other than the dictionary, we recommend that you use our Spelling + Friends App to start improving your word bank for this year’s National Spelling Bee!

The Spell + Friends app provides definitions and their correct pronunciation. Word pronunciations using the recorded audio files which are embedded in our app deliver the words the way they should sound — so you do not have to rely on the dictionary or search for each word on the internet.

Our Spelling Bee Learning Flashcards better any other traditional workbook and dictionary study methods by providing a constant mobile companion, spelling guide and kit – which tracks your progress word by word.

Words can be marked out as favorite and incorrectly spelled words will be tagged for future improvement and practice.

Our word lists are constantly updated and are comprehensive and suitable for most spelling bees, including National Spelling Bee, North South Foundation Spelling Competition, UIL Spelling Competition, and various school bees, county bees, regional bees, state bees, and hometown spelling competitions.

The Spell + Friends word list includes challenging words from Paideia, the Consolidated Word List (CWL), and regional and national bees since the 1970s, while the bulk of the more difficult words includes Scripps’ Consolidated Word List (CWL) with all the words with pronunciations, definitions, and etymology!
