Vocabulary

Did you know that there are over 600,000 words in English? That's a lot of words, and far more than any human being could ever manage to learn. Even Shakespeare only used around 55,000 different words in all of his works. Mind you, he did actually invent quite a few of them. To get a good mastery of English, you do need to expand your vocabulary as much as possible. The more words you know, the better your English will be. The Activities here will help you to quickly develop your vocabulary.

Spelling

Spelling can be challenging in English due to the many exceptions and irregularities in the language. These Activities are designed to help you improve your spelling skills by learning and practicing commonly misspelled words. The exercises will help you to identify patterns and rules in spelling, and to memorize the correct spellings of words. By participating in these Activities, you will have a better chance of spelling words correctly in your written English.

Exam Practice

Here you will find comprehensive exam-focused lessons to help students achieve success on widely recognized language proficiency exams such as IELTS, TOEFL, Cambridge English Language Assessment Exams (PET, FCE, CAE, and FPE), Trinity College London Exams, and TOEIC. These lessons are designed to hone your vocabulary, grammar, and overall language proficiency, which are essential for passing these exams. You will learn the words and phrases that are commonly found on these exams and how to use them in context, giving you a competitive edge.
