We assume that most of the more literate HalfBakers are familiar with the "alphabet" chart where a letter is combined with an image corresponding to a word beginning with that letter, i.e. 'D' with a picture of a Dog, 'Q' with a Queen, 'C' with a car.
However, in other languages the pictures are
inappropriate. In German, 'H' goes with Hund (=Dog) and Z goes with Zug (=train).
What is needed is a 26-cell spelling aid where the picture element can be changed according to the the language being taught.

||And don't forget Å is for Ål (eel), Ä is for Äpple (apple) and Ö is for Överliggedagsersättning (demurrage).
||Tack så mycket .... we'd forgotten the extra Scandinavian vowels, we suppose Æ is needed as well....
