Perfect for boosting school lessons, assisting home schooling, and hitting UK national curriculum SPAG (Spelling, Punctuation and Grammar) criteria.

Get near-instant results with this powerful way to learn spelling, punctuation and grammar (SPAG) for school spelling tests, and as practice and revision for SATs. Sir Linkalot's multi-sensory app improves spelling for students of all ages.

Over a third of 11-year-old children don't meet literacy test standards. Students using our app typically improve their spelling scores by 70%, with a 150% improvement for those who find learning tricky.

The Sir Linkalot app uses spelling animations, quizzes and puzzles to improve literacy with: ▸ spelling ▸ vocabulary ▸ homophones ▸ etymology ▸ rules & patterns ▸ punctuation ▸ grammar.



Word bundles are sorted into difficulty level and subject area, and contain 20 animations plus two tests: crossword spelling challenge and multiple-choice questions. Each bundle is named after a famous literary figure in history including: Spaghetti Shakespeare, Diarrhoea Dickens, Broccoli Bronte, Weird Wordsworth, Patient Potter, Anxious Austen and Colon Conan Doyle.

A Premium subscription (monthly at £6.99, or a 1-week free trial with yearly membership at £49.99) allows full access to our word bundles. Payment is charged to your Apple ID account after the trial period. Subscriptions automatically renew unless cancelled over 24 hours prior to the subscription period. Manage or cancel your subscription in your App Store account settings.


SPAGBOL (Spelling, Punctuation and Grammar Based on Linking) is suitable for 4–18 year olds (and beyond!). Our App features whimsical 'flashcard'-style animations to teach mnemonic devices — refined over years of school workshops and pupil transformations — that are perfect to help spelling for kids and adult students.


▶ For students:

▸ Entertaining and hilarious flashcard-style animations teach you fast.
▸ Max your ALF (average last five) quiz score.
▸ Become a better LIAR (extend your 'links in a row').
▸ Smash your spelling tests and share your scores with friends.

▶ For parents:

▸ Encourage your child with bitesize learning sessions.
▸ Join in the fun to beat repetition and embed difficult facts and figures.
▸ Especially effective for children with special education needs (SEN) and specific learning difficulties (spLD), including dyslexia, ADHD and autism.

▶ For teachers and schools:

▸ Support your in-classroom learning and take-home practice.
▸ Use it to revise the spelling of 100s of tricky high-frequency English words in the UK's national curriculum.
▸ Complete a crossword spelling challenge in under two minutes.
▸ Multiple-choice spelling game to immediately test learning (core targeted for KS1, KS2 & KS3).

▶ Sir Linkalot's multi-sensory approach is truly effective over all age ranges and abilities:

▸ Covers pupils with different learning modalities, including more visual or auditory learning styles.
▸ 'Linking' aids the recall of any fact at a later date which could delay the onset of dementia.
▸ Life-changing for adults with dyslexia or those going back to study as a grammar and spelling refresher.

10/10 for Engagement and Results

This is by far the best app we have downloaded to use for home schooling. Will definitely buy a subscription afterwards. The boy child LOVES doing it and will choose it over all other activities. He loves the animations and remembers then straight away. We did a spelling test at the end of the first week and he got 59/60. At school, he would get about 2/10. It is also easy for me and he can work independently but then I get jealous with him laughing at all the fun animations and so I have to come and watch it too! Even the teenager is interested (although she pretends she’s not)! Who knew spelling could be so much fun!?

If any parent is reading this review and wondering whether to give this app a go.... DO! I am in no way connected to this app so it’s an entirely impartial review. I feel incredibly grateful that it was made free to access during this time of schooling from home. My 8 year old twins and 5 year old (and even my 2yr old!) love it... the humour is spot on but it doesn’t ‘dumb down’ as the Susie Lexicographer snippets are brilliant and Sir Linklalot also uses lots of factual stuff eg. geography in his links. I really enjoy doing it with them and learning too! I hope you love it as much as we do!

Awesome and very educational but also some bad parts 😢

Sir Linkalot is very good for learning spellings and words you need to know by the age of 17. It’s awesome videos make sure you understand the word and meaning of it too, the videos are funny 😂 and good for kids I’m 9 and love it so much! 💓 The only bad thing is when you do a cross word, it goes all rubbish and you can’t type in the right boxes 📦 also in tests when you get a word right sometimes it says it’s wrong, once I thought I got it wrong because it said it was so I showed it to my mum and said “Oh I only got 19 out of 20 😭!” She said “Hang on you got them all right this app is wrong!” So that is my review thanks for reading 😊
