Modern teaching methods for foreign language insist mostly on communicative skills and this is what the teacher pays the most attention to. Also, the faculties’ rules insist on written form of the exams. The problem is: how to exam the communicative skills by written tests, especially if you don’t wont, or you can’t use the mother tongue of students? The problem can be solved in several ways: Text with questions about its meaning, pictures of some situation to be describe, the dialog with the gaps to fill… And then, there is one more problem: how much the spell checking is important for the beginners? Which stage of learning some language is the best for insisting on correct spelling? Is it beginning, or later? How much it depend of the type of language? Every answer open more and more questions, but this paper will try to answer at least some of them, including one example of test at the end.
