Online tools and resources for vocabulary building

     Dear Penny,
How are you doing? I haven’t heard from you for a while.
Speaking about me, I’m fine. I have started a new course in the university which is called the Lexical Management. I think you can figure out what we are doing during the classes with remarkable ease. This course helps us build our vocabulary by using online tools. As you liked English, I think that these resources will make you feel enthusiastic about learning this foreign language as well as brush up on some constructions.
First and foremost, I’d like to tell you about some vocabulary dictionaries. They include Urban Dictionary, MacMillan Dictionary and Cambridge Dictionary. Urban Dictionary describes words in more informal context. You are able to make comments there. It is a great opportunity to rack your brains, because you can provide your own definitely. Usually, people use it mostly for slang. MacMillan Dictionary gives you a great example how to use this word in the sentence. If you are got used to work by a step-by-step approach you should try Cambridge Dictionary. It provides definition for different English lever-learners.

If talk about online tools, Tagul and Quizlet are definitely worth mentioning. Most of all, I like using Tagul. With the help of it, you can show your creativeness. It forms word clouds from the lists using different symbols. In the same time Quizlet is the first tool is used for creating flashcards and learning words with their help. This resource breaks down the task down into several stages. At first, you learn new words, and then you can play with them, pass different tests and so on. In fact, this tool is very effective as you revise the words, and because of this, you start to know them like a back of your hand.

Quizlet :
I hope that you’ll get the hang of using these tools, and they will be as effective for recalling and learning words as they were for me.
Lots of love,
