This website could only be made by someone like me - a father to a 3rd grader, with a routine of preparing her every week for her spelling test.
I knew I couldn't disappoint myself. If there is a technological solution that could replace me and save me those precious 10 minutes every week - I am the one to find it. And if it couldn't be found - I will make it.
I thought it's a matter of two-three months.
But like many projects - you know how it starts, but you don't quite know how it ends…
As work was in progress, I realized I should add some typing practice too. And games. And word lists. And I found there are much more English words than I initially thought. And that it isn't enough to record only the popular and easy words, because teachers often have the habit of picking rare and challenging words.
Now, after 8 months of programming, testing, and mostly staying up all those nights clipping and editing thousands of words - I can finally sit back and enjoy another cup of coffee every week. And every sip is worth it.
My name is Barak Sofer and I'm a website developer. I own this website as well as free-training-tutorial.com - an educational portal. I grow with my kids and create online learning materials that suit them and other students around the world…
I tried to keep this website simple as possible, making it practical and an easy-to-use learning tool for teachers, parents and students.

Almost two years have past, and my daughter insists I mention that she isn't in third grade anymore, she's now in fifth. So here, I'm mentioning it.
