Especially Vs. Specially

When do we write "Especially" and when "Specially"???
The explanation is the following: We use especially when it can be substituted by "particularly". For instance, "I'm especially interested in the tennis courses". However, we use specially when we refer to something exceptional. For example, "That was a special offer".
