Word Learner – A Nice Android App for Building Your Vocabulary
Word Learner is a nice vocabulary practice app that I recently installed on my Nexus 7 tablet. The app has two primary functions; to provide you with word lists to study and to provide you with practice quizzes.
When you’re studying new word lists Word Learner offersÂ pronunciationsÂ to listen to. The pronunciations are available with U.S. and U.K. accents.
The practice quizzes on Word Learner are timed activities that provide instant feedback on each of your answers. To progress through the levels of the quizzes you need to be able to correctly answer 25 questions in the time allotted. One flaw with the quizzes that I tried is that you need to be a fast reader in order to get through 25 quizzes in the time allotted. I would prefer to Â see the quizzes focus more on accuracy than on speed.
Some of the other Word Learner options are custom review lists, statistics on your quizzes, and a word of the day feed.
