I just visited the site and I was amazed to be able to read it without any effort. Wow. Then why do we have to care about the spelling?

I'm so glad that you two tried it. I was wondering how difficult it would be for non-native speakers to understand. To "fill in the blanks", you have to have a real sense of grammar...the patterns of phrases...and a pretty extensive vocabulary. That's why I think it's important to drill vocabulary in context, not just as isolated vocabulary words.

(On the other hand, if the first and last letters are not in place, it is much more difficult to decode the words.)

eri-san,

It may be interesting to use it as an English teaching material. :)

M,

I too was curious about non-native speakers reading it. And, yes, learning vocabulary in context really works.

Beth,

Oh, yeah, it looks as if you did it in some other language. The experience this time was a very useful one for me. Thanks!
