5 reasons to try Vocabulary.com
- Vocabulary.com does a great job of "gamify-ing" the process of building your vocabulary through its adaptive learning system
- It is among the PC Magazine's Top 100 Websites & the Time magazine's top 50 websites of 2012
- The site's main attraction, the quiz, has some 100,000+ questions and the answers are educative. The site reportedly contains over 100 million sentence examples.
- The site is ad free
- Their dictionary is blazing fast. In an unscientific comparison, it seemed to beat another contender, thefreedictionary.com with the print layout, for the title of world's fastest, smartest dictionary.
I learnt about the site from the English.SE Q & A website and I'm hooked. I have a few nits to pick though.
The way the scoreboard sticks to the quiz section, it seems there is something hidden below the quiz box. A small left margin for the scoreboard would make it a less distracting for me.
A keyboard shortcut to move to the next question would be nice.
