Today it dawned on me that many people may not be aware that you can do this in your configuration to have built-in spell checking in e.g. Markdown files:

autocmd FileType markdown setlocal spell spelllang=en

There are key bindings to obtain suggestions and so on, “:help spell” will give you all the details.

Not being a native English speaker, Vim's built-in spell checker has been a life saver many times. I can't recommend it enough!

@aperezdc I routinely write in two languages, I would use auto spellcheck more often if I could easily make it understand more than one language at a time, I think.
