Catch of the Day - WordSteps - Jul 23, 2010


WordSteps is a website where people can learn and maintain their vocabularies of foreign languages.


At WordSteps you can enrich your vocabulary, as well as track your learning progress and recall the the words you find more difficult.


WordSteps, as the name suggests, works in three steps …

  1. Find or create dictionaries of interest to you
  2. Use any of 10 different exercises to learn new words
  3. Refresh the words you've learned previously


There are thousands of existing dictionaries each covering a specific topic of interest such as art and entertainment, business and politics, science and education, sport, culture and people, and many more.


WordSteps claims that by investing just 15 minutes, 3 times a week, you can learn at least 3000 words of a foreign language in a year's time. That would be about 85% of the vocabulary used in books written in that language.

Very neat! This is a really great tool for students preparing for SAT/ACT tests, or just increasing their vocabulary.
