In the US, teens have been taught how to “spell” a few of their favorite words, and now there’s a British teenager who’s learned how to do just that.
In an interview with British newspaper The Times, 13-year-old Lewis Williams of Wigan, England, told The Times: “I have a really strong vocabulary.
I know about a hundred words.”
He also said that when it comes to learning words, he believes “he should have been born with it” – something that was confirmed in an interview conducted by The Times.
“It would be nice if everyone had a bit of knowledge, but for me, I just know so many words, so I don’t have to know anything.””
Williams, who lives with his mum, is currently studying for the first time and hopes to study the language he’s learning in the future. “

He told The Telegraph: “To be able the next time I’m looking up a word, it’s like ‘oh, it works here’, because it’s so familiar.”
He said that while the word “spell knowledge” was something he’d heard a lot of people say, he’d never heard anyone actually spell it.
“I think I’m the first person to say ‘wow, I don,t know, I’ve never heard of that’,” he added.
“It’s not just my mum, I mean, I think people who have never been taught to spell can spell words too, and I think it has some kind of a meaning.”
The teen said that he’d also learned to read a few letters of the alphabet from his mother, and that he also learned a few words he didn’t know before, such as “greece”, “welsh” and “northern English”.
He said he’d been interested in learning to read for “a while”, but had “got to learn the alphabet first”.
“I’ve got to do the spelling and the grammar first before I can do the words,” he said.
“And then I’ll probably have to do a bit more study before I get my first book of words, because I don`t want to be stuck in this word.”
