Moscow, Russia, 2010/05/16 - WordSteps is a new web-service which can help to memorize new words efficiently. It’s a personal vocabulary manager with a pretty simple idea: invest 15 minutes a day visiting this website and in return get about 20 new foreign words remembered.
WordSteps offers you a big collection of dictionaries available on the website in nine different languages: English, French, German, Russian, Spanish, Chinese, Japanese, Italian and Portuguese. Find a dictionary you like, or create a new one, and then do any of six offered exercises. Each exercise trains specific way of words perception and memorization. For example, exercise “Flash Cards” is the exact analogue of flash cards method with a word shown on one side and translation on the opposite side of the card, which I described earlier in this article. Other exercises include choosing correct word or translation from the list of options, checking right spelling, assembling correct words from set of letters, etc. Helpful answer keys are available in most exercises.
Every dictionary could be rated by users. Such system allows members to choose a dictionary of required quality and difficulty level. WordSteps have a lot of nice features which can help you to track the progress, send private messages to your friends, machine translation feature and others.
