Three Good Android Apps for Vocabulary Practice

Share

Last year my school’s administration put on a big school-wide push for helping students develop their vocabulary skills. I was asked to put together a list of websites that students could use for that purpose. I published that list here. To complement that list, here are three Android apps that students can use to learn new vocabulary words.

At first glance Power Vocab appears to be just a set of vocabulary words that you have to select the correct definitions for, but there is more to it. You can also work on spelling of the words that appear and play word search games. In my testing of the free version of the app featured words that were appropriate for middle school and high school students. The paid version of the app offers more difficult vocabulary. Watch an overview this Android app in the video below.

 

Words, Words, Words is a free vocabulary app from Socratica. I have previously mentioned this app along with some others from Socratica here. I like that the Words, Words, Words interface is very visually-pleasing and easy to navigate. Words, Words, Words can be used in a flashcard-like manner for familiarizing yourself with the words or in a quiz mode. Words, Words, Words offers audio to help users with pronunciation.

Vocab Builder I like in part because on my phone it loads the fastest of all the apps. The simple interface offers two ways to play; match definitions to words or match words to definitions. Of the three apps listed here, the words I encountered on this app were the most challenging.
