Vocabulary.com

Vocabulary.com turns learning new words in English into a game. A series of flashcards, sometimes with single words out of context or with words being used in a contextualized phrase, is presented to the user. Then four different definitions of the word appear and the user must decide which one is most correct according to the context. If the answer selected is correct, an explanation with other possible meanings and uses is provided (also in English). The difficulty level varies and the software provides statistics that show your progress. You can compare your score and compete with other users.

Évaluation : Vocabulary.com is very user friendly as the flashcard system is intuitive. The process of signing up and starting training with your vocabulary is simple. As the tool learns which words you have more difficulty in memorising, it adapts the selection. Explanations provided are all given in English. The tool already has many English lists with easy-to-understand dictionary definitions. It is not for other languages and is best for an advanced learner, even a native speaker. A downside is the fact that the program follows the logic of a game, you can compare yourself to others in a ranking and track your achievements: this can be motivational for some learners, whereas, for users less comfortable with competition and comparison, it could cause anxiety.

Coûts : Free. Educational paid plan available.
