How to spell Believe?
Beleive is Incorrect
Believe is Correct
Remember the saying, "i before e except after c" to get "ie" in the correct order.
Associate "believe" with "lie" in the middle; you must "believe a lie" to be deceived.
Think of the word "be" and then "lieve," which rhymes with "achieve."
"Believe" shares the same spelling pattern with "achieve," both having "ie."
The word "live" is almost in "believe," hinting at a life philosophy.
