One Activity

  1. Lutfi Hussein - Mesa Community College says:

    This app is useful particularly in an ESL class. Students are asked to work in pairs or small groups to look up a word of interest to them; they discuss the word, its definition, its meaning, and etymology. Then they present to the rest of the class on what they have learned. In so doing, they will have interacted as a group, learned new words, and exercised their reading and speaking skills.
