Pete posted a topic in Language TeachingWe have created a series of word search books with handwriting practice pages. There are 12 books in total and every book has a different puzzle, so you can have fun racing your friends to finish it and you cant copy your friend! You can practice handwriting and learn sentence structure and also try to pair the words from the puzzle such as Listen-Hear, Bird-Nest, One-First, Dog-Barks etc. The books are on amazon and can be viewed here, https://www.bklnk.com/B09WPW7C11 Any feedback is much appreciated, thanks
Own words written test
sherbsherb posted a topic in Language Study AppsLong time I've been looking for any online service, where I could store and keep my own words, with translation, example and train them with a written test. But did not find it anywhere. Numerous apps and sites offer pre-compiled abstract words with flashcards test, but I wish my words with a written test. So I refreshed computer lessons from school, studied basics of web design for 3 weeks on youtube and made such webpage. Now I use it to learn Finnish language and like it a lot. Maybe someone find it useful. http://testyourwords.com/ Share any ideas how to improve it.

Memorize words in all languages
Kirshi posted a topic in Promote your Website/App/Game/VideoHi All! I would like to share with you my technique which I used to memorize foreign words. When I used to be a student and had an exam in foreign languages, I used to ask my fellow students to ask me the words from my dictionary, which we had to learn, and I had to tell them the correct word. I believe that this method helped me a lot in learning the difficult words. So, I came up with the idea of creating a small and simple Android app which acts like a personal dictionary. The purpose is simple: - You write down the words which you would like to remember into your phone and translate them - You can test your knowledge by playing - the program will ask you the words and you have to type the correct translation. For example, let`s say you study German and your are an English speaker. You save these words in your dictionary: table - der Tisch. The app will ask you "What is table in your studied language?", then you have to type "der Tisch". Simple, isn`t it? Of course, you can modify or delete the words which you don`t need anymore. There is an option to export your words to Google drive or similar. I m planning to add more features but this depends on how much free time I have... I know that this is a simple application right now, so I would be very happy if you share your ideas with me. If you wish to see some other features, don`t hesitate to let me know Just drop a message, or reply here. The app is called I know that word and can be found here: https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.reminder.words.kirshi.wordsreminder It is free! I hope that you will find it useful! Thanks
I recently discovered this app while looking for an offline translator and something to expand my vocabulary in either language. Let me tell you, it has a VERY nicely done design and aesthetic. Not only that, but it has quick games and quizzes that are incredibly helpful if your vocabulary quantity is lacking in either language (though it is mainly targeting English learners who speak Spanish I believe). Its games are quick and challenging, and I'm pretty sure it all works offline as well. Here's the Google Play download link: https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.nglish.spanish.english.translator&hl=es_419
Parasitic words (fillers)
anna3101 posted a topic in Language LearningHello everybody, Many people I know, and, unfortunately, I have to add myself to that list, use words which in my native Russian are called "parasites". Those are the words you use far too often. Probably the best English equivalent would be a "filler". I'm pretty sure you've heard people speak in this way: "Like, I don't know. He is, like, oh my God, it's great. But I'm not sure. Is it, like, really that good for him?" Do you have the same problem, in your native or second language? Do you try to fight it? If you do, how do you go about it? I know I tend to abuse "Well, ...", "cute" and "really" in English. And in Polish I make diminutives far too often which is probably extremely annoying for some people. Do you have some advice? Thanks! Ania
