Improve your English vocabulary.

(Word search is an aid to working memory!)

First essential step: encounter new words

Learning vocabulary is one of the first steps of learning a second language. Word search puzzles offer the student new vocabulary daily. An average student will learn around 3,000 words per year, or if we break that down: eight words per day. And that just happens to be the number of words per game in ESL word Search.

Repetition is an important part of learning

While playing word search your mind is actually repeating over and over again the particular word that you are looking for, thus consolidating the word as well as the the spelling to your memory. Retention is also facilitated by the fact that you are not studying but playing, so the words committed have a priority route to the memory centre.

Spaced Repetition

Spaced repetition is a proven memory technique that helps you keep what you've learned strong in your mind. The way it works is you review each word or phrase you've learned in spaced intervals. Initially the intervals will be smaller: you might review a new word a few times in one practice session, and then again the next day. Once you know it well you'll be able to leave days or weeks between revisiting without forgetting it.

It has been established that Word search puzzles can provide visible results in 5-10 days if played on a regular basis. The results can be in form of quick thinking, improved retention of vocabulary, elevated moods or fast reflexive actions.

Competitive Edge

Challenge your peers

The challenge varies, but is scored based on time. If learners are motivated to learn certain words out of interest or need, they are likely to be learnt more easily. ESL Word Search is a perfect tool for language schools or colleges that wish to put a competitive edge on vocabulary learning within their language courses. The vocabulary words in each list have been carefully chosen to represent words that are also the most likely to appear in academic and English language tests such as TOEIC, TOEFL, GMAT, ACT, SAT, IELTS.

Although there are many differences between the variations of the English language in the world such as pronunciation and spelling all variations are mutually intelligible and are mostly the same in terms of grammar and although pronunciation is by no means immutable and permanent, it is less liable to capricious innovation than one may think.

In the English Verb Series, we have tried to present the English language as the international language it has become. We have dedicated our time on trying to present the English Grammar in the most simple, functional way and used various samples of pronunciation for comparison: American English, British English, Canadian English and Australian English.
