How to turn of Word Prediction or Suggestion on Android Smartphone

I have been using Samsung Galaxy and HTC One X Android based Smartphone that run on Android Operating system, during initial days i found this “Predictive Text” or ” Dictionary Word Suggestions” thing on phone very appealing, but over the time i realize that, it annoys you, if you are not in habit of texting/typing in English language, what i meant to say is – if you use your local language on android smartphone while texting, the “predictive text” application will automatically try to replace the word with some similar words. It happened with me many time that when i try to talk in mix form i.e my own local language and English, the words replaced automatically. So what you want to write goes straight to the receiver with something that look like funny. On the same day i started searching for quick fix to turn off predictive. 

Although this is pretty easy and is fixed easily by most of the people, but for those who are still hurdling for the solution. So answer to “how to turn off word predication on android” is easy, just  follow these steps and you are done.
