I suppose because I bought my IPad in France, it thinks that my language is French. When using "Pages" for every word I type in English, it comes up with a replacement in French - most annoying. Also when connecting to Apple Store all the titles are French. How can I change this all to English?

    Normally the spellcheck follows the Keyboard.  If you see a Globe key, hold it down and make sure you are using an English keyboard.  If no Globe key, go to settings > general > keyboards and make sure only English is on the list, adding it if necessary.

     

    PS If you need a layout other than qwerty for typing English, you can also choose azerty or qwertz by tapping on the keyboard name on the list.

    Go to Settings>General>International and change the Language

    I don't think that will have any effect if you do not change the Keyboard being used.
