They're there, I hear here
Some EASY misspelled words (and how to learn them):
You're = You Are. The apostrophe is showing the "hidden" letters.
Your = belonging to you. If it's not "yours," then it's "ours."(the "Y" in You was given up, see?)
Two = Number 2. Put your TWO index and middle fingers together and make a "W" and you'll see TWO fingers each making that "W."
Too = "extra." There's an extra "O" in the word too.
To = in some direction. "Go TO someplace and stay there."
Hear = being aware of sound. You "hear" with your "EAR."
Here = a location. If it's not THERE, the "T" got lost, so it's "HERE."
There = a location. See above.
Their = possession of 'something.' If it's THEIRS, it belongs to 'THEM.'
