Vocabulary.com

Vocabulary.com is an adaptive learning program for students to build their knowledge of English vocabulary and spelling. It provides learners with multiple ways to practice vocabulary, as well as track their progress. The program teaches words by systematically exposing learners to a variety of question types (definitions, images, synonyms, sentences etc.) and activities that help build mastery. It tracks words learners have already mastered and prioritizes vocabulary identified as challenging. It also allows instructors to create thematically specific lists to correspond with classroom materials and topics.
