What's with the autocorrect not working Tab 3 ver. 4.2.2

Seriously. On my android phone, if I misstype a word (ex. freat insead of great), the middle suggested word is 'great', it's in blue, I hit spacebar and that sh!t corrects itself. WHY does this not happen on my Samsung tab 3 android version 4.2.2 .WHY! How can I change this! The whole reason I bought this tablet was to make it easier to write and create spreadsheets, but this is NOT easier!!
