An adaptive app that gives students personalized, intelligent feedback coaching them to a better understanding of the words they are learning.

It supports learning of key words from well-known Oxford English textbooks including Navigate, English File, Headway Academic Skills and Q: Skills for Success, as well as offering students the chance to create personalised word lists using vocabulary from the Oxford Dictionary.

Key features

  • Practise daily: the app tests your knowledge, guiding you to the right answers with personalized feedback and hints, including picture clues, definitions, anagrams and audio
  • Get instant visual feedback on spelling, grammar, meaning and word usage. Collect knowledge and experience points with each answer
  • Statistics help you track your progress and show you where you are improving

  • The app makes use of spaced repetition: words are practised at the point when the learner is likely to forget them. This reinforces learning and helps to put words into long-term memory
