  • Even though there's no see involved like foreign heights neighbor beige, there's no trick for them.

  • You'll just have to memorize how those words are spelled great.

  • So instead, I should remember the rhyme I before e except after c on.

  • I just try not to cry from all the confusion.

  • Susan.

  • Grammar illusion.
