A little trick for spelling

Hey learners, 

So I was reading an article and found this little trick might help you as well when you have to write spelling and there is no way to check ( as in most of English exams).

I am posting it here as it is on source site:

I/E Rule

Write I before E

Except after C

Or when it sounds like an A

As in "neighbor" and "weigh"

i before e: relief, believe, niece, chief, sieve, frieze, field, yield

e before i: receive, deceive, ceiling, conceit, vein, sleigh, freight, eight

Exceptions

seize, either, weird, height, foreign, leisure, conscience, counterfeit, forfeit, neither, science, species, sufficient.

There is also exercises available on source site to practice these rules.
