Angela,

Some free online vocabulary help can be found at Townsend Press.  The
exercises are designed to reinforce what the students are doing in the
corresponding textbooks (reading and vocabulary), but one can do the
exercises without a book.  Go to the Online Learning Center and create
an account.  Creating an account is free. See exercises under Vocabulary
Books.  www.townsendpress.com

You might also check out the New York Times Learning Network. Reading
news summaries, the student can turn on the vocabulary tool and check
word meaning as they read.  There's also Word of the Day, which provides
a list of words in the archives, and one can see words in context.
www.nytimes.com

Hope there's something useful here.

Best,
Jeanne

Subject: Vocabulary Building software

Dear Listservers,

 

Does anyone know of a good, interactive, online program to assist
students develop and build their vocabulary?  I had a request from an
English Composition teacher so thought I would ask to find out if there
is anything new and jazzy software out there.

 

Thanks,

Angela
