The advance of web 2.0 tools and mobile technology has made language learning a much easier and enjoyable endeavour for students. There are now tons of websites and apps that provide free language practice in almost any language area. In a post we published a couple of years ago, we featured 16 great websites for teaching and learning vocabulary. Today we are adding to this collection three good iPad apps to help students with their vocabulary learning.
1- Science Vocabulary
‘This app is designed for students aged 8 – 11 years old. Vocabulary instruction is important to a student’s science learning. When teaching science vocabulary, you are actually teaching important concepts. Research shows that knowledge of science related vocabulary is related to reading comprehension and school success in general. Building vocabulary will help integrate the science content with other content areas and help increase student achievement.’
2- Vocab SpellingCity
VocabularySpellingCity is a fun way to learn spelling and vocabulary words by playing engaging learning games using any word list.
3- Vocab Genius
Vocan Genius is a great iPad app to help kids with their vocablary learning. It provides over 800 flashcards for some of the most useful yet difficult vocabulary words in the English language, complete with definitions, sample sentences, and synonyms. It also features over 300 “word elements” flashcards for common prefixes, suffixes, and roots.
