This is a post for the students of the intermediate group. We have just started studying the topic of Olympics and sports and I have thought that it would be a good idea to introduce you to an amazing, this is my opinion, tool: Visuword. This new on-line visual dictionary will provide you with two different options: a proper dictionary and a neurone-like layout of all the terms related to the word you are looking for. And that is what I have done: I typed Olympics and below you haver the link to the result.
Hello pupils! I have just discovered a new social web for those who love learning vocabulary in different languages. Its name is Leximo and I think it is quite a thrilling idea. Below you have the words of the administrators of the site explaining the philosophy behind this new invention. Feel curious and give it a go. You may find it exciting: making friends by giving away pieces of your own language. You will even learn new vocabulary. Don’t you reckon? Looking forward to your feedback.
Leximo is a “Social Dictionary” that invites users to submit words in every spoken language of the world. Since each word can be submitted by multiple users, definitions can vary widely in quality and thus other users can rank these definitions, so that the most popular definitions appear first.
The goals of Leximo are to:
- Formulate a vision in which Leximo is free and open to all users.
- Appeal to people who have an interest in world languages, culture and travel.
- Allow the contributions of users to directly translate into the advancement of Leximo.
- Bring together people of different ideologies, races, beliefs and cultures.
>Hello everyone! A few weeks ago I found quite a few new gadgets (widgets they call them) which will help you when reading this blog. The first is the appture which allows me to select information that I think you may be ineterested in and link it in to a pop-up window where a definition or other sort of material is displayed. In this case, the marked information is highlighted in different colour and by the symbol of an open book. The other interesting feature is that of answer tips. This time whenever you click on a word the meaning will be displayed in a pop-up window, so you do not need to go to a dictionary and look up the meaning. Apart from these two devices, I have included another widget with which you will be able to chech the links I consider can be useful. They are updated every week. Please leave a comment if anything does not work or if you have any interesting accessories. Even constructive criticism is accepted. See you soon
