What should you do if a language setting failure occurs in macOS spell-check system? Here is a small guide offering a rational way out.

For example, the spell-check appears set to French corrections. Certainly, it may be annoying and it consumes time. All the more as the spell-check feature in macOS is systemic then if it happens once in the system user may face it in many applications. Another problem is that language setting may fail to interact with spell-check setting as, for example, in the case of Facebook.

The user’s actions, in this case, should be as follows. First, you have to make sure that macOS language preference has actually changed and find out for what particular language.

For that purpose: in the typing application you are currently working with, you make the cursor appear on the screen and select the following path: Edit > Spelling & Grammar > Show Spelling and Grammar. Maybe you find the wrong setting here. The Automatic setting of Language on the floating palette also may be the cause of the problem. So reset the language choice to US English and maybe this will fix the issue.

The other place where the wrong setting might occur is the systemic preference pane Language & Region. Here English/English (U.S.) should be in the first (top) line of the Preferred Languages. If not, drag it there. If you are not going to use the rest of the languages in the list, you may remove them.

However, it may happen that you fail to find the wrong setting even in Language & Region. Then the only option left for the user is to disable automatic spell checking in your typing program. To do so, just follow the path Edit > Spelling & Grammar > Check Spelling While Typing and Correct Spelling Automatically removing the checkmarks at each step.
