Not being funny, but if you're really concerned about your english and it's worrying you, have you had a test done to see if you're dyslexic? (Why is that such a hard word to spell?!) - sometimes putting the wrong letter in, or missing words out of a sentance can be a sign of it. You may just have a very mild case of it, in which case you can get computer programmes and things to help you out with writing to make it easier.

Other than that, perhaps try a basic english course like the ones offered by learn direct? it might help you a little

Good luck, hope it gets better for you

I should have had the test years ago, but for various reasons it got overlooked. Due to other problems such as my hearing i had an extra help anyway during school so they thought ti wasn't worth me having the tests done.

Do you not know how the words are spelt or are you simply trying to type too fast?

I purposely type that bit slower to avoid mistakes.

A bit of both, if I am writing stuff by hand or into my PDA I make much less mistakes. I type really fast so I make mistakes that way. There are words that I somtimes don't know how to spell though, I get mixed up at times.

Try slowing down the typing a bit then? Proof reading always helps too.

Personally, I think that lots of reading is the best way to learn to spell.
