Introduction to Linux - A Hands on Guide
This guide was created as an overview of the Linux Operating System, geared toward new users as an exploration tour and getting started guide, with exercises at the end of each chapter.
For more advanced trainees it can be a desktop reference, and a collection of the base knowledge needed to proceed with system and network administration. This book contains many real life examples derived from the author's experience as a Linux system and network administrator, trainer and consultant. They hope these examples will help you to get a better understanding of the Linux system and that you feel encouraged to try out things on your own.

There's nothing matching that using LMDE "aptitude search", so I thought I'd search for "en-gb" as I know that's the version of English that I'd like to use, it returns a few titles, but this is the only seemingly appropriate one:
i libreoffice-l10n-en-gb - office productivity suite -- English_british language package
Oh, it works all right. I have been using LibreOffice Writer 4.2.1 just now and the damn thing has been annoying because it does not understand the jargon I have been using. Not a LibreOffice problem, just my current circumstance.
1. Open LibreOffice
2. Click on the Tools menu.
3. Select the Options... item
4. Go to the Language Settings section
5. Fill in the options as you want them.
6. Go to the Writing Aids section
7. Fill in the options as you want them
LibreOffice and OpenOffice need the Hunspell spellchecker, so make sure that it's installed. Then you need the UK English dictionary for it. That may be listed in the repository under Hunspell or Myspell. After that, follow the instructions in post 13.
