How to Disable Autocorrect on Android

One of the useful feature on Android that helps to type correctly and quickly is Auto-correct using the default android keyboard. It is indeed an very useful feature for people who are new to the English language, however on the other hand it can be annoying for people who want to type a non English language in English.

For example, a Yoruba man might want to type in his own dialect and in this case, the auto-correct feature would be very annoying by suggesting English words which will be entirely irrelevant. So to be frank the auto-correct feature is both a blessing and a curse, depending on the language the user wants to type in.
